“Typist picked up some sketch paper… AND…” Thalia twirled, “… three gel pens yesterday. Red, Green, and Purple.”
“I’m not so sure that it’s the tools,” Urania slid her glasses down her nose, “as it is the feelings the tools create.”
“Can we draw something a little more springy today?” Thalia asked. “As much as I love those snow pants… I’m ready for some tulips.”
“When faces called flowers float out of the ground.” e.e. cummings So maybe the muses would like to take turns reading stanzas from cummings’ delightful ode to April! And leave the snow pants on a bit longer! The drawing seemed to depict snow and freezing rain. Not ideal tulip weather? The feel of numb legs, as essential to twirling, may pose complications for creating feelings of more than frostbite.

Yes! That new network analyzer software, that new digital multimeter (different folks, different tools). Or that old Craftsman variable-speed drill gifted by my father when I bought my first home (so he could buy a new cordless model w/o guilt) that still delivers just the right torque when the trigger is gently squeezed, even after 40 years.
