    I think I would enjoy that very much.

    The creation of things and writing have much overlap--a Venn diagram of sorts. One more physical than intellectual, the other more intellectual than physical. For me, there is a merger of sorts (a melding of structure and substance) in a "thing" and a "tale" in that area we call art. A building can be simply utilitarian or can be sublimely beautiful and useful, like the dichotomy of basic communicative writing and the books and stories we frequently discuss here.  

    You make me think of chimney flues and organ flues--so different, so functional, so beautiful.

    Thanks again for the thought-provoking diary.
