thank you, credit, sand art

Okay, time to thank followers because I have a new one--big thanks to Ray Veen for clicking that little button. Over at his blog you can become envious of his productivity and beautiful family. Looking forward to his work in progress update.

The reason I started doing this thank you thing here is because I admired Paul Michael Murphy's way with his reader, he is a blogger to be emulated, nothing but fun over there. Although that is not to say there is not also substance. Most recently writers and sensitivity, look now I'm quoting Nathan Bransford's blog titles too. And also attempting to give credit where credit is due.

Finally, this was on and you don't have to watch the whole thing, but you could watch some. Jason Kottke said to watch until at least 1:06. I think it is amazing.

When I'm always going on about gesture drawings and their place in revision, this is what I want. Can you appreciate how impermanent that is? If only I treated my words more like sand. I love how her story is told and changed through these great strokes of sand. Or small little smudges. I need to get myself a back light sand table, clearly.

As Always(thinking of you, xo),
