« "eHATCH!" is here! | Main | • reflecting the eternal spark »



Hi McNair! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Even though mine was a bit busy and somewhat stressful, I did take the time to rest after it was all over. It was then that I rediscovered your blog. I was delighted to see that you're still here inspiring others with your stories and pictures. My rest time was long enough to read through all of your archives. Your musings are a perfect pair with the new sketchbook I got for Christmas. I noticed that you make seals of authenticity with wine, tea, etc. in your sketchbooks. How do you make them look so beautifully authentic? I'm adding ephemera to mine along with doodles, Ta-Da lists, etc. and would like to add a few seals of authenticity to mine. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to send you a few pictures of it. Stay tuned!

Well, I guess that's it for now. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. It makes the world feel a little less lonely.


P.S. I thought it would be great to reread your book, Hatch!, but I don't seem to know which box it is in. Darn! It has been a couple of moves since I saw my copy, so I reordered a pre-owned copy (funds are a little tight right now) from Amazon. Another perfect companion to my sketchbook!


This is a P.S. to my last comment: I am happy to report that I took the plunge - I experimented with making seals of authenticity in my new sketchbook with great success! I started out by being very timid; the first seal was barely noticeable. I have since improved my skills and now am looking forward to developing even more.

McNair, I hope both of my comments find you healthy and happy. Happy New Year!
