The customs are such that with “The Honest Scrap” there is a bit of kiss and tell.
I am not use to digging for things folks may not know of myself. Usually I feel peoples eyes glaze over (I have a habit of justifying what I say, in real life…that can be #1) either in confusion or feigned respect. But since I can not see your eyes I will throw out 9 more lines- a few up close, mostly a few steps back -and keep it light as I head toward that ambiguous bottom of the screen page.
Second; I have a few very dear friends. I don’t tend to collect people. I never realize there is room for another, until a new one friend finds me.
Third; I think Toshiro Milfune was really cool.
Fourth; Having recently gotten out of storage, again, I found that there are few things I had been collecting...though I don’t tend to amass…obsolete library cards, springs, dice, S hooks, and smashed souvenir pennies.
Fifth; I believe if there were a mandatory reading (or reading to) list for being humans there would be an enormous influx of compassion capacity and collective genius. List to be compiled.
Sixth; I cry easily.
Seventh; I do not fluster easily.
Eighth; I believe in having at least one work venture going in each of the project groups at any given time.
Ninth; I have climbed barrier fences, in this, and other countries to visit the ‘unavailable’ art.
Tenth; I do love a well-designed ampersand.
