|I can’t not go there today.
My wife is a painter. She reads a blog for painters by Robert Genn, who shows he’s an artist with words, as well. The following is from that blog – The Painter’s Keys – (you can see he’s already wielding words artfully), and his salutation indicates it’s for us, too.
All of us.

What a week. What a frustrating, crappy week.
Best intentions… I sent out a newsletter with two free gifts. Happy Holidays to all.
Turns out one of the links was broken (my fault), and (when fixed) both links were limited to 100 downloads a day (not my fault, other than selecting the wrong place to do the delivery). To give you an idea how frustrating for all this was, including me, I received a “notice of non-delivery” for EVERY failed download attempt… over 1000 of them.
If you think I’ve been idly sitting here twiddling my thumbs on this, you’re wrong.
I quickly researched an alternative delivery method, found one, and then sent it to the newsletter subscriber list. But then, TinyLetter.com, the email distributor (the subscriber database is too big — over 4000 — to use traditional email, it crashes it), stepped in to FREEZE that email (because I’d sent out an ill-fated rescue email earlier that day, prompted a robot on their end to stop the presses, fearing it was SPAM), and now they won’t respond to my requests for help.
Message to TinyLetter.com — bad service gets lip service online. Here’s yours.
Anyhow, the downloads are now hosted on THIS website, and the direct links are here:
Read the Intro (at least) on that last one… reads like a killer post, and delivers serious perspective. And… it sold the book.
I apologize for the inconvenience. Hope you enjoy these.
