my friend indulged my desire to do some pumpkin carving with me
here's a shot with the lights turned down even lower
here's his pumpkin
we call him Clive
making art with a friend is one of the best things in life
often workmates at my office
will fill the whiteboard in our office kitchen
with doodles and jokes.
this week i participated in the collective doodle with glee.
the premise was holiday themed.
some standard, but strong entries
in this impromptu doodle-off...
some were a bit more
what was that i saw?
next to my contribution,
someone had come behind me
and scrawled the words, "1st prize!"
i find it hard to express
how gratifying this moment was for me,
trying to do "more" with my doodles.
though, to be fair,
my vote for first prize
certainly would have gone to this gem:
some days i really am very, very grateful
for having a job where i do.
