Formal Studies

“Formal education teaches how to stand, but to see the rainbow you must
come out and walk many steps on your own.”
― Amit Ray

Hi! I’M LINDA DARLENE.  For a while there, I felt like the cobbler’s wife who had no shoes. Beginning in 2009, I had spent my time working on, and designing websites, for others — but had no time to design my own. My tax accountant put a fire under me, telling me that the IRS wouldn’t look too kindly on that fact. After a lot of ‘baptism by fire’, I decided I also better get some formal training in web design. That was an incredibly good idea. There was so much to learn — still is. And so here I AM — and see below where I’ve been.   🙂
