Remember a couple of weeks ago when we chose a name for the ship we here at Time Goes By are traveling together on my last great adventure in life? We voted, settling on This End Up.
Let me back up a bit. Last week one of my most favorite friends came to stay with me for a few days. Stan James, who is a blockchain engineer (you're on your own to figure out what that is), lives in Boulder, Colorado and he is one of the few people left in the world who often communicates by snailmail.
Postcards show up regularly along with the occasional actual letter on paper in an envelope. They always look something like this:
Yes, Stan is a master at beautiful, gorgeous, amazing calligraphy.
Somehow, until this trip, Stan had neglected to tell me that his art is not confined to paper. He is also what I am calling for now a beach calligrapher.
Here is Stan himself with one of his sand creations:
Since we are celebrating one of America' iconic holidays tomorrow, here is an appropriate creation from Stan for the season:
And now, the piece de resistance for the denizens of Time Goes By, take a look at this fantastic sand creation just for us:
Isn't that wonderful? It makes me want to cry with joy. You can find much more of Stan's sand calligraphy on his Instagram page.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
