Exactly what might I say in response to the question, “What’s my line?” Today I am a writer using a line of text to convey an idea, and a digital line to express another point of view. Yesterday as a designer I used ruled lines, my quarter inch scale, and drafting board to produce floor plans for a client. The day before artistic me, added color washes to a line drawing on canvas. Earlier the same day I spent an hour on the line with Comcast setting up my new phone line. So, really what is my line of work?

Having started this line of thought, I have found it impossible to stop. Instead, it would seem I am constantly at the mercy of a never-ending cascade of line words that might, or might not relate to my line of inquery. So, in an effort to purge myself of this endless lineup of words, I shall attempt to recall as many as possible. And should others come to mind, drop me a line.
