A Powerful Example Of Mixed Media

IMG_1687.jpg

Here in Boston we have a very large and well thought out central public library. In its main lobby, beside having a fine display of books, there is a coffee shop and, of all things, a radio and tv station. On certain days you can go in and watch or listen to a PBS program. My photo here is of a radio and tv host named Jim Braude doing a call in show. (His co-host Margery Egan is not in the picture.) 

Sitting comfortably surrounded by books, sipping coffee and watching a radio broadcast plays with my head a bit. The feeling I have is of the density of information that I now have constantly available and its tangential obligation to use it wisely.

Is the western world currently in a period of media overload? I’m not sure but, it bears thinking about.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.
