Re: “Celebrate Guy Woodward's life

I knew Woodie over thirty years ago in Santa Cruz where he was very successful in Real Estate. I discovered he had also moved to Savannah not long after I moved here in 06. We saw each other occasionally and chatted about business, art and life. I only this week learned he is gone. Sorry I missed the event in June.

Re: “Painting with wood

Wow, this art is one a kind. You can tell that the artist Albin really put his heart and soul into his work.

Re: “Geoff L. Johnson: Tripping over history

Well, he used the word punchline and he grinned about it so apparently he may be great photographer and history buff, but he is a callous human being. (Also, "spending a day" with someone does not make them a master mariner, just an under-informed armchair captain.)

Re: “Geoff L. Johnson: Tripping over history

I don't think he meant "punchline" as a joke or in a way to devalue the incident, but more in a "twist to the story" kind of way. Who would joke about that? Think about it.

Re: “Geoff L. Johnson: Tripping over history

Wow, he spent A Whole Day aboard the ship. That must have given him great insight into the whole situation. "Went down on CNN"?? What a lame remark on a tragic situation.

Re: “Geoff L. Johnson: Tripping over history

Re: “Carol Fleischaker Cohen’s spiritual journey

People are always claiming spiritual journeys. That is like Alice going down the rabbit hole. Give up spiritual things which don't exist and focus on what is real.

Re: “Lisa D. Watson: Spanning The Gap

Brava Lisa for your valiant effort and for Kayla (and earlier Jessica) for writing about it! Years ago I submitted a request to Mayor Susan Weiner to change the name to the Silver Span Bridge. The Golden Gate may be portal to the west, but our bridge, which does physically look silver both in sun and streetlight is a beautiful reminder of all things Savannah here in the east: it spans our lifeblood-- the Savannah River-- reminding us of our close connection to SC, spanning a history of immigration, and commerce. It spans the river that is both part of our past and the key to our future. And like Savannah, it is both historic and progressive at the same time. The Silver Span is a strong name that alludes to the value of coinage—but brings to mind a treasure. I know there is a movement to name it after yet another person, but I think it should be honored for standing alone over the river as a beacon that brings us home. Carol M. T. G.

Re: “Graphic Design: The everyday art form

Great to see such events being organized, Youngsters are really getting good now in creativity and uniqueness, but the main problem that they are facing is that they are not being able to find jobs because of too much crowding and most of the times their portfolios are not up to the mark too. I was just reading an interesting article on how to pitch the perfect portfolio really a very nice read indeed:

Re: “Flannery O’Connor’s ‘Southern Discomfort’

O'Connor unquestionably hoped her work would lead people to religion, but frankly the evangelical and pentecostal religion this Catholic got addicted to only leads to atheism. Pentecostal and evangelical Christianity is not healthy.

Re: “Flannery O’Connor’s ‘Southern Discomfort’

I am afraid that O'Connor's love of human grotesqueness combined with religion makes Christianity entirely too redneck and negroid. It is the bourgeoisie that needs religion the most and can contribute the most to its successes.

Re: “Should we tip artists?

I'm excited to be giving away 1,000 envelopes as part of the installation! That has the potential for $1,000+ given to support artists!
See you soon, Savannah!
