A Bit of Stuff


One line dragon ASCII art. I’m using it for my sig line at NeoPets.

“Language is a virus from outer space.” — William S. Burroughs
“Say everything as simply as possible, but no simpler.”

The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the
words are forgotten.
–Chuang Tzu

Words — so innocent and powerless as they are,
as standing in a dictionary,
how potent for good and evil they become
in the hands
of one who knows how to combine them.
–Nathaniel Hawthorne

All writing is a form of prayer.
— John Keats


I really do like my ASCII art. In some ways I like it even more than my writing and that says a lot. I love writing, the act of it especially. But, the ASCII art is something more. It is partially a skill I never thought I had and yet there it is right on the page in front of me, showing me how “Yes, you silly grrl, you can do it!”. So, I’m proud of my ASCII art. I have found a way to convert it to a graphic image file too. So you can see some of it live and in person. Right now it’s a little dragon.
