SHOULD BE CALLED "NOT WANTING A LETTER"

When I was in high school, I wrote an essay for my English writing class that was itself an argument for removing the letter M from the English language. I wrote the whole thing (2 pages) without using it once. Imagine my happiness today when I found a website dedicated to such writings. They have a name! Lipogram, meaning "wanting a letter."

I love Language Hat. It leads me so many interesting places. :)

BEHOLDER'S EYE

Be gentle with me. :) First art project in YEARS. I'm not too happy with the scanner, the piece isn't nearly this dark, even after playing with it in Photoshop. The background fabric is a green silk shot with red metallic threads. I'm not too happy with the upper right corner, but the rest of it turned out how I envisioned it. The text is a quote from Ruskin and reads: "Remember, that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies, for instance."
