My favorite man.

Jonathan Miller - London, England
Sir Jonathan Wolfe Miller CBE (born 21 July 1934) is a British theatre and opera director, author, television presenter, humorist and sculptor. Trained as a physician in the late 1950s, he first came to prominence in 1962 when the British comedy stage revue Beyond the Fringe (written and performed by Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett, and Miller himself) came to Broadway. Despite having seen few operas and not knowing how to read music, he began stage-directing them in the 1970s and has since become one of the world's leading opera directors with several classic productions to his credit. His best-known production is probably his 1982 "Mafia"-styled Rigoletto set in 1950s Little Italy, Manhattan. He has also become a well-known television personality and familiar public intellectual in the UK and US.

**Atheism **
In 2004, Miller wrote and presented a TV series on atheism entitled Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief (more commonly referred to as Jonathan Miller's Brief History of Disbelief) for BBC Four, exploring the roots of his own atheism and investigating the history of atheism in the world. Individual conversations, debates and discussions for the series that could not be included due to time constraints were aired in a six-part series entitled The Atheism Tapes. He also appeared on a BBC Two programme in February 2004, called What the World Thinks of God appearing from New York. The original three-part series was slated to air on Public Television in the United States, starting May 4, 2007, cosponsored by the American Ethical Union, American Humanist Association, Centre for Inquiry, the HKH Foundation, and the Institute for Humanist Studies.

Migrane today

It makes me sad and kinda scared that I have a migraine today. I get scared because I used to have them a lot and I don't want that to happen again. I don't really feel it will, but I am still apprehensive. I can pin point why I am stressed and I can work through these few things - slowly. I need to be diligent and always look at the big picture. Cold Turkey was a verygood idea and applying it to many things has been really helpful.

First day with the model in Sculpture 2

I made my armature on tues and began appling clay to it today. I forgot my camera - so no pics- I'll have some on Monday afternoon. So happy to have the model because we can really see how the shoulders and hips relate to eachother . I started to understand weight distribution and volume of the belly and chest better. Also, the twist of the spine under the flesh. I had the tailbone in the wrong spot!!
