Jim Albinson is a Baby Boomer gratefully exploring the Millennial World. Education included BA Economics from Wheaton College - with an informal minor in Art, also BS Mortuary Science from University of Minnesota, I am a Licensed Mortician and have practiced the "Dismal Trade" for more than thirty years here in Minnesota.
Married to Marita Meinerts Albinson who is Publicist for The Guthrie Theater, has her MA in Communication and is much smarter than me. Daughters Lisa Albinson married to Heather, and Carrie Bosmans married to Steve and they are also all smarter than me. President of Albin Endeavor Inc. which is a small Minnesota "C" Corporation. As a longtime resident of the west metro I truly love our cities and state.
I have always been fascinated with wheels and so am an avid car buff and recent convert to the motorcycle experience. I used to ski a lot.
Food is good and a shared meal is a joy and a gift.
I don't like bullies.
I am a visual person drawn to shape and color and composition. The artistic media is not for me the end but the beginning, a means of providing shared experience and discovering what is really there.
I am now attempting to develop my creative impulse using my iPhone, GoPro and my weak sense of humor.
Some people say that I drink too much tea which might be true; however, I like to stay hydrated. If you "Google "aspiringteaspokespersonjim" you will find links to many of my short videos purporting to advocate the consumption of tea.
I have always believed that art matters. Live music is magic and I am trying to understand what it looks like, "Sound and Vision" as David Bowie observed.
I am certain that God loves us and uncertain about most other things.
