Little Cheer-Up Tricks For a Deep Gray Day

One is to try to think of something you’ve done right in your life that you would no longer have a chance to do.

Today, I will settle on my beard choices. Had a short full one, trimmed but not excessively so, for about eight years. Should have had more photos taken and it’s too bad it would reek of cigarettes sometimes. But, when I was done I was done, shaved it off and have not missed it since. And the white one I could grow now would only make me look ancient.

PS: I also learned this afternoon that Kenny Scharf made a 23-minute animated pilot for Cartoon Network in 2002. But the excerpts I’ve been able to track down online indicate it was quite the dud. Drawing on cartoons for your art does not mean you know how to make cartoons. Just like making superlative cartoons does not indicate you can turn out excellent paintings.
