“Unless you think you can do better than Tolstoy, we don’t need you.”
— James Michener
I thought Frida Kahlo said that.
Love these pictures, I know we should look elsewhere for the technicals, but the in process photos are a great help. I can’t wait for more.
I, too, love quick grip clamps.
Clever solution to a knotty problem.
It’s nice not to be needed for once.
Okay???? What’s the connection? I should never read your blog in the early morning and with only one cup of coffee.
Did Michener think he was doing better than Tolstoy? That’d be like me saying, “Unless you think you can design better than Hank Gilpin, we don’t need you.”
Tolstoy was a pretty good writer. Verbose, and odd, certainly, but at least he went on too long. D’oh!
