This comment describes potential and has confidence. I’m so glad that Lynda Barry is a teacher for the world through the internet - I love this stuff.
Sometimes it costs more to buy the supplies for making something than it would to just buy the thing off-the-shelf.
When you go ahead and make the thing anyway, despite the higher cost, you’re buying the right to spend time on it, and to be picky about the result.
You’re buying the fulfillment that comes from creating something useful.

EMPTIED GESTURES BY HEATHER HANSEN

Does moving equal thinking?
Is it possible that we move as a way of forming thoughts - rather than moving as a result of thinking? Isn’t this what we’re doing when we gesture? And sometimes when we dance and draw?

I hear the original mix on Pandora more often than this cool mix on Soundcloud. Every time the lyric starts, I think of this image.
You know when somebody answers a question, but they don’t quite really answer it? And then they go and overexplain their non-answer as though you don’t know the definition of most of the words that are part of it?
There has got to be a word for that.
The detailed distraction. The accurate but irrelevant anecdote.
