Punctuation is direction

Useless in poetry

Ok for screenplays

Imperative in texts

A letter from my love while abroad that I've titled:

lift conversation with a geeky german

"are you here for the medical expo?"
"no", I said
"oh, sorry, you have a medical kind of face"

and I just said

"you too!"

To the DIYer- Painting:

Paint goes farther than professionals
Twirl the brush occasionally while applying
Strike in every direction but finalize with direct strokes
Always go over creases boldly with fingertips (puttying)
A straight line somewhere and strategically placed
diverts (attracts) the eye away
from all the rough rugged intersections
You cannot go directly to the edge
build towards it; a few strokes prepare the brush
you're remembering to twirl with fingertips?
And I've said somewhere that good imperfection is
equally difficult as perfection to achieve-
but Always strive for perfection. The trick, it seems,
may be knowing when to veer.
Confident and swift is the object mechanically
if the hand and mind unruly, quit for a bit.
Everything is a full body affair, step back a lot
you're likely making mess- keep personal space clean.
You'll read and be told about angle (of the brush)
bullshit, what's important? viscosity, timing, (your) position.
This is the hard part.
If it doesn't look good there's a reason; find the reason.

Imperfection is equally difficult to achieve.
