  1. Sending this link to my daughter who is a graphic designer for a major company…although it is her BOSSES that need to see it!

  2. A good reminder for leaders and managers of people. This would be good for many bishops and chancery folks to see. Everything doesn’t have to happen RIGHT NOW! The most effective solutions take time to marinate.

  3. Beautiful and so necessary… time. We rush through for what? Thank you, thank you – I know that I really needed this reminder today.

  4. Elizabeth Scalia says:

    Man, I needed to see that today! Thanks!

  5. You have solved a great issue in my life. Thank you!

  6. A very perceptive friend of mine (a Roman Catholic deacon, not surprisingly) sent me a link to this post. Made me grin from ear to ear.

    As a freelance illustrator, I know that a tight deadline can focus the mind wonderfully. But you can’t beat “play” for coming up with the really good ideas.

    Thanks for sharing, and good to see a whole classroom-ful of young dynamo illustrators!!

  7. So, so true. Especially when you have to throw the first ten ideas out.
