ASCII Art

I’ve always found ASCII art (typewriter art in my youth) to be very interesting. This however lifts my spirit.
The late Paul Smith (1921-2007) who had cerebral palsy “is probably is one of the first to use ASCII characters to make art. Through the years, he developed techniques to create shadings, colors, and textures that made his work resemble pencil or charcoal drawings.”

The above is just a detail from one of his many works. See more at his website.
Awesome.
I had dinner last night for a good friend’s birthday at a wonderful multistar restaurant, Celestin. The chef / owner had been in a car accident years ago and is a paralegic. He has a special stand-up wheelchair and cooks everything and supervises the kitchen to a very high standard. Just goes to show, that with the right attitude you can achieve your dreams.
We have lots to be thankful for.
Happy US Thanksgiving!
Stephen
