Seems totally silly, but I’m putting stuff here now. Why not?

Everything has already been said and done. But, then, if this is so, why do we need more poems in the world? I once read a Jane Hirshfield interview where she said something quite wonderful. She essentially said we have to keep writing because it’s every generation’s job to put in the present vernacular poems that are called upon for rites of passage, such as poems read at weddings or funerals. I hadn’t thought of this before. Your ordinary citizen should be able to go to the library and find a poem written in the current vernacular, and the responsibility for every generation of writers is to make this possible. We must, then, rewrite everything that has ever been written in the current vernacular, which is really what the evolution of literature is all about. Nothing new gets said but the vernacular keeps changing.

Rewrite, redo. Yesterday and tomorrow both have different points of view.

I found a not-very-accurate color wheel and a few odd sketches in a book it seems I started in 2012. Even though it’s years later, I think I’ll put more stuff into it!

Although you don’t HAVE to keep up your comic-diary over spring break… what if you did? What if it was a page laid out any way you like, with as many panels as you like? You have everything you need to do it.

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.

Buying time

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.
