I help you almost once a week at the grocery store with your seafood purchases. I doubt you'll see this, but if you do, please respond back. I'll know it's you when you tell me the specific seafood you ask for each week.

  5. Well, I'm a vegetarian and yet I fully support this relationship and would also very much like to know what she buys! My first thought was "mermaid" but I don't think you eat those.
    Hmm.

  14. Again very nice drawing! I am your fan from Germany! Why don't you draw a picture about a m4m or w4w missed connection? Or have I just missed them?

  15. Hi Georg,
    Here are a few of the w4w and m4m ones...there are others earlier, and more to come.
    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments; this would have been a short-lived project without them.

  16. Wonderful illustration! I just love these... makes meeting strangers and the glimmer of hope into a beautiful thing.

  17. ummm...well spoken...she might not appreciate that term of reference. I may be wrong, but I doubt it.

    I have been described as "well spoken" a million times and I tend not to like it.
    For further reference, here is a link to an article by Pulitzer prize winning journalist Eugene Robinson that states my opinion better.
