Anyhow, it had me thinking about the "Father of Contemporary Animation," Chuck Jones. I had been to one of his galleries in New Mexico but still didn't feel like I knew the real story behind his greatness. /2
And greatness of this caliber is often associated with early lives of pain & suffering.

I immediately looked him up, & found my answer within the first few paragraphs about his childhood.

You see, Chuck Jones was born in Spokane, but his family moved to CA in the 1920s. /3

This was such a good conversation I didn't want to stop talking. Thanks @davidlparsons!

(P.S. wanna know why #ATL is the capital of #Georgia? It's not just bc of railroads! Take a listen...😉)
Hint: think race & #Reconstruction.
Also: learned something abt myself doing this interview bc it was over the phone & not on a computer.

I ❤️ed it bc I'm so ADD that my thoughts race way ahead of what I can say & I often get lost in them. But here I moved around constantly. Walking meditation.🧘
