Quotation: William Pitt the Younger (1759 – 1806)

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

(As found on Phoebe’s Detention Room)

  1. So I was going through some old emails, and I found one from you requesting that I comment on your blog. For some reason, this email went to a little used email account. I had almost completely forgotten about this blog since I visited many months ago. I just spent about two hours catching up. I am taken back by the consistency of the posts, and the tone of a great number of them. I’m sorry for not being a more frequent admirer. I now have you in my favorites. I suppose I will be going through many of the challenges you have with this blog concerning my own, trying to get the right people to view it.

  2. Oh, and this quote struck me, as I just finished reading the book Amazing Grace.

  3. Thanks Ned, I kind of thought that might be the case. I was considering reminding folks about it but I figured you’d find it in due course. I’m really glad you have spent some time looking around though I often shudder to think how you may judge my rather green attempts at illustration. But I do sense that I’m making progress. Thanks for your comments about tone. I struggled with tone early on and finally determined that, for the time being, I would emphasize brevity.

    And yes, I noticed you are the proud owner of a WordPress blog. Can’t wait to see what you post. As far as audience, feedback is always nice but right now I feel as though I’m merely building a foundation for my New Gottland identity — learning what inspires me and where I want to go as a working artist. Once I manage to make new work and get some opportunities to show it I’ll be promoting the website a great deal more. Likely in November.

What say you?
