from gapingvoid.com



I found gaping void by chance a few months ago and immmediately subscribed to this guy's point of view. He's a cartoonist/graphic designer working in advertising who made a name for himself drawing on the backs of business cards. He has great ideas about creativity and business, and just generally seems like a very smart guy.

I loved the quote about being lucky because I often forget how fortunate I am sometimes. Look at what you do and what you are -- you are the luckiest person alive!

Yes we do tend to forget how lucky we are.

My enthusiasm seems to go in cycles, I am mid-cycle right now.

I feel lucky- and I said that when Clint Eastwood pointed his 45 in my face too- oh sorry that was corny!

I miss your stuff, now I have to catch up!

I never realized you had Norman Vincent Peale leanings ;0. Once I get over the grip of my past & the uncivilized, wild depths of my mind ...I will be the luckiest person alive. Stay tuned.~Mary
