Response to femmocrat (Reply #4)

7. I've had a hint of that myself...

After I graduated university, I had some time where I was gainfully unemployed. It was nice having the time off, but to go from producing so much work and then having nothing but time was a very jarring, and at times, deflating experience.

Out of curiosity, do you fancy yourself a creator of sorts? I know the visual arts are often construed as a field in which you either have a gift for it or you don't, but I find that to be a misconception. As with anything, creating something is a skill set, and any skill set can be acquired with enough time.

As for the name, it's a combination of a couple of things. The song, "Out of Time Man", by Mick Harvey, is one of my favorites, and for a period in my life, it felt like my theme music.

I also was once told by someone very special to me, that I was someone who was "a quarter step out of time...in some ways very fitting for this time and in some ways just outside of it." Of all of the things that have been said about me, that one is one of my most cherished.

Thanks for the reply and the warm welcome!
