Strange but true... I'm reading about Mr.Carl Barks in
"Carl Barks and the Disney Ducks," and I'm thinking
this man (at the time) is 91 years old! There he is
sitting down at a light table doing sketches &
tracings, touch up painting to a prototype sculpture,
and nit-picking about specifics while taking down
notes on corrections - At 91!!! God be merciful!
Lately, when I heard he was sick, I was afraid he'd
now be half out of his mind and on deaths door. And,
just a week ago he's up, sitting in a chair, and
checking his e-mail, which is in large print while
listening to Ben Crosby - at 99!! He's checking his
e-mail at 99!!! Isn't that amazing?
MR. CARL BARKS, IF YOUR OUT THERE READING THIS (AND I
PUT IT IN ALL CAPS FOR YOU - NOT BECAUSING I'M YELLING
- BUT BECAUSE I'M HOPING SOMEONE FORWARDS THIS TO YOU:
YOUR THE MOST FANTASTIC ARTIST IN ANY CENTURY!!!
The 'one' who has a finger on 'it'... scratches against the mahogany lining of a coffin crying, "I am Jonah! I am Jonah! Spit me back out so I may see and feel the light of day again." And, the levithan does not heed for it knows every great epic must come to an 'end.'
A tasty morsel known as... "understanding." (F.A. Elliott)
