Every So Often...

...I hit that perfect blend of being asked to create something for someone, and I can see it in my head. And I get it out of my head easily--and the person for whom it's created is completely happy with it.

BigBrotherSensei asked me on Saturday to type out a quote for him to put up in the dojo, and within a few hours I got this:
It's not a big deal, really, but there was something about the simplicity of the poem that made it easy for me. Sometimes the seemingly simplest things will cause me great agony, though I confess to a few hours or so of me obsessing over the exact size and placement of the kanjii symbols.

But when I took it to the dojo today, the poster was greatly appreciated. BigBrotherSensei said it was more than he hoped for... and then he didn't want to put it up till he framed it.

It made me feel really good.

Made up for the fact that TF is just beyond unreasonable...

Love it - my nephew would love it, too! Even though you did it for the dogo, is this something you could also sell???

Wow, I love it. I'd put it up myself and I don't even practice Karate.
