  • @juaomaya Juão Maya, I really appreciate your thoughtful comment! It’s been a while, but I’ll watch the movie 'Fahrenheit 451' again, except this time I’ll watch it with a more discerning eye :) BTW – I like how you incorporated “punch” into your comment; it made me smile :) Thanks a million!!!!!!!

  • @ah_livia, I'm now approaching your work little by little. I do it with the same sense of wonder and curiosity of Montag, the fireman who burns books in 'Fahrenheit 451' directed by François Truffaut. I don't know if you have seen the film, but the scene showing Montag furtively reading a novel for the first time, in this case 'David Copperfield', is very moving (no pun intended!) and breaks hearts. As for this presentation's subject, believe me, I used to think about it according to the ideas of Gandhi!!!... So, thanks for updating my mind. I love your art style. It is modern-looking, sophisticated and visually powerful. It strikes me like a punch, but posetively

    Thank you kindly Geoff for your feedback.
    Especially thank you for widening my world view. I didn’t know mailing perishables was illegal in Canada, and I like your sticker idea :)

  • a friend mentioned that mailing perishable items may be illegal in Canada. maybe fruit stickers as a symbol would work as well?
