The best part of writing a post is the image search. Technically, of course, that’s not writing, but it should be considered part of the process.

Chasing down the perfect illustration or photograph or graphic element is often frustrating, occasionally fruitless, but always, always an adventure. The hunt takes you places you hadn’t expected, to ideas you hadn’t even imagined until the instant you clapped eyes on that one magical picture. Then, shazam, your whole way of thinking changes and all kinds of possibilities open up.

It’s like a garage door opener that way, except for brains instead of cars. I love those moments. They’re one of the great joys in life, just a full-on buzz. String enough of those moments together and you’ll live happily ever after. I guarantee it.

Dazzling as they are, though, images will not disguise a bad idea. A stinker is a stinker, no matter how you dress it up. heh, I found that out the hard way.
