Talk Less, Smile More
Lyrics from Broadway Musical, Hamilton
A slightly skinned knuckle is keeping me from blogging very much today but those lyrics jumped out at me from the soundtrack of Hamilton that I have been listening to this week. I don’t necessarily agree with the following line in the play, “Don’t let them know what you’re against and what you’re for.” Since I am trying to limit my typing, I will refer you to Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic for a great blog post on the set of lines. I totally agree that we would have a far happier world if people did just talk less and listened to others!
Today, I will also type less, smile more! I have been working away on improving sketches and looking at color palettes as well as some hand stitching. Guess you will just have to trust me on that. 🙂
Since today is the start of a major holiday in the U.S. where we pause to remember how this country to which many of our ancestors immigrated began, I will just add a patriotic tune and close. It is pretty hard to find a rendition of just the first verse without a lot of editorial commentary so I hope you won’t mind that I have resorted to a clip from Superbowl XLIX which I realize many of my Seattle friends would like to forget ever happened.
