(starting to feel a little "But enough about me. What do you think about me?" at the moment).

I enjoyed this very much. It's not often you hear a comedian analyzing comedy the way you do. Cleese was very afraid of going into therapy because he thought he might lose his funny, for example. Talking about comedy seriously and then being funny  . . .  you did it well +Chris Bliss Thanks.

I am really pleased and excited to have been invited to participate in the upcoming Annual World Summit of Images and Voices of Hope.
http://ivoh.org/ivoh-annual-world-summit
The more I'm learning about IVOH, the more I'm looking forward to being a part of this event, and spending time with people whose extraordinary experiences and accomplishments have made messengers of hope, while still being hard-eyed realists. No happy talk here, just passion and methodology for making positive changes in our world.

The Bill of Rights Monument, 5th Amendment Monolith, was inscribed last week. Here are the first photos - beginning with the rubber template overlayed on monolith, then two shots of the finished work. The white stuff and lines are residue from template, not permanent. By the end of next week, the first five amendments should be fully inscribed. 
We still need to fund the installation costs. How about a little help? http://mybillofrights.org/arizona-project-programs/

Major thanks to John O Whiteman for his personal contribution of $10,000, our largest individual contribution to date. We've now topped the $250,000 mark in funding for the Bill of RIghts Monument at the Arizona Capitol! 
Mr. Whiteman has been an outstanding community leader in Phoenix for many years. Check out the exceptional work of his foundation here: http://whitemanfoundation.com/

Senseless violence in Aurora, CO, followed by the senseless prattle that surfs the wave of every story #trending these day. If there is a point to be made, cartoonist Joel Pett has come the closest to it I've seen.

Our new watercolor illustration of what the Arizona monument will look look like at twilight. The monoliths will be facing west by southwest, so will capture the color changes of the setting sun, and will also be lit in the evening, which will look exceptional against the desert sky.
