Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

This poem speaks to our own ridiculous vanity; well, mine, at least! I feel a gentle bond with the author-may I ask, did you know her?
Again, I find your use of perspective and distances skillfully rendered in the fewest strokes.
I work with my hands, Sakuo, (30 years with plaster and drywall) As I continue to improve (hopefully) technique, less motion and effort becomes so important. One time, first time...I think you know what I mean.

This could mean:

_I'm fooling you... because I've done my hair, or; I'm the fool, having done my hair with no place to go.
_Yet, I sense the sadness of exclusion.

_As always, my best wishes, Sakuo San! _m
