Dear Athena, Thank you! I'm glad that you like it! Also, I'm very pleased to know that the face and body expressions are effective (working out the details of both resulted in Promise being unusually long in coming :) ). As ever, the expressions and the emotional content they convey were foremost in...

Thanks for sharing such an excellent essay with us! This is indeed truly thought-provoking and offers a brief, but enlightening glimpse of what might be discovered--and gained--if one takes even a small, brief step back from modern technological trappings. And as Athena points out, what enriches the...

Brilliant, rich and utterly arresting! :) In only the space of a few papagraphs, you've crafted the background of several three-dimensional characters and offered highly convincing glimpses of their lives, who they are and the ways in which they interact. More than that, you present a look at a mult...

Given the uncompromising nature of the works, I wonder what the movie will be like.


I'm curious myself, especially as I'm not familiar with the works, but the trailer looks promising.

There just might be a marathon reading session in the not-so-distant future for me as well (the other recs I'm catching up on notwithstanding). That aside: caliban wrote: I'll just steal from her the point that Lucas' narrative has the somewhat incoherent idea that true growth demands starving onese...

Wonderful essay! I admit that while I've gotten through the first four books (and seen all five films), I have yet to catch up on the latter novels.

Excellent, highly insightful points. :) I've also found that the internet and its nearly countless aspects has significant benefits and equally prominent drawbacks. As has been fittingly stated here, the availability of information (in full agreement with the assertion that it must be accurate) and ...

The image definitely accomplishes this along with many other things, and then some.

Lovely! The sketch of the lovers is truly captivating, just as much for the arresting contrast between the relaxed poses and the subtle tension conveyed by the hint of emotional unrest in the facial expressions, as for the flowing, tastefully rendered beauty of the figures themselves. The wonderful ...
