One of those moments

I was sitting on the plane coming back from Adelaide yesterday and this lovely elderly lady and her son sat down next to me. They were having a big chat about what was in the paper and she lamented how the font was too small to read anymore and how much she missed the news. He then opened the paper and read the news to her, all the way to Sydney.

It was one of those moments when you are reminded that the great people aren’t just those out winning medals, but also those overcoming everyday obstacles together and moving forward.

    There are certainly a lot of dletias like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

      より:Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was emleexrty long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Cool story, Andy. We all need to tune in more to those moments as they happen around us every day. Also, I understand where she’s coming from. Remember how all of us as young designers used to love making type small? Like smaller than newspaper type? We thought it was cool and beautiful. Now-a-days I can’t stand the small type… rather, when I see big type it’s like a breath of fresh air.
