Okay, you had me going. You really have me freaking out.


Nice McNair, if this were legit you'd have to deal with the fact that on the top of the main page it says "WE NEVER CLOSE"

Yeah, nice though.


Very good, Craig. VERY good.

This is the first morning after 68+ inches of rain where I feel like my spark is finally alive. The period of dormancy may be over . . . even if the rain is not. It's SPRING!!

Issac, Don't you think I LEFT the "We never close" line intact on purpose? Good to hear from you. I was at Compassion yesterday and ran into many of our old compatriots. They have transformed the theater into a third world classroom (as I had sketched out and suggested in Feb 2009.) Looks great! I will take photos and post...soon.


this is why i hate april fool's day.... i am always the fool.

i don't always comment but i do always read your stuff....

i am painting again, mcnair... it is because of you.

Lauree- - you comment is why I will NEVER stop blogging, speaking, Tweeting, coaching, doodling, publishing, directing...and you MUST comment now and again to encourage me and TEA readers who also need to be "painting AGAIN!!"

Aimee Bontreger

So I had my guard up all day yesterday. I was not going to get fooled.

But when one falls a day behind in their google reader, and one reads the foolin' posts on April 2nd, one is inclined to believe them...

...and temporarily feel very shocked/depressed/stupefied that McNair, of all people, would quit blogging.

I'm ever so glad it's not the truth. You have inspired me for years! (And I trust for many more years yet to come...)

Aimee :: You can't stop me now. I am "ever so glad" you posted a comment—they really are most encouraging. THNX ~ mCnAIR


Okay, you got me! Not only that, it was just today when I was catching up on blog reading that I saw another post from you and realized that your April Fool's joke worked.

So glad you haven't left the blogosphere because I enjoy and am inspired by this little cup of tea.
