  1. I went to art school to become a product designer, and I found I was very critical of myself and of anyone who came up to me and told me that they were an artist or a designer. They needed to prove it to me. When I was in my sophomore year someone asked “how do you know when you’re really a designer?”

    The answer given was this: When you can look in the mirror and say “I’m *insert name* and I’m an Industrial Designer” without laughing at yourself.


  2. Hey, Towles. I read your piece on Brevity about blogging. I live in the Atlanta area as well and I think I’m doing a similar thing with my new blog sweetsuburbia.org. I’m attempting a creative nonfiction treatment of chronicling life here in suburbia. I’d love to chat about this sometime.

    I studied Creative Writing at GSU and am a working journalist and freelancer as well.

    Let me know if you have a few minutes.



  3. Was searching online for a photo of a little yellow bird and I happened upon your blog and Proximity Magazine—am enjoying both—serendipity indeed!
