There is the expression 'to read the writing on the wall', in reference to the story of mysterious foreboding words that appeared on a wall at a party thrown by King Solomon; the Destiny's Child cd 'the writing's on the wall'; the other blogs that were inspired by these words, including one John Kerry fan site and one online journal of a person who works for an animation company.
- assisted in idea creation sessions where everyone wrote ideas on walls at my favorite place in Switzerland
- thought a great deal about painting on the walls of the room I lived in in Amsterdam
- assisted in painting Nintendo figures on the walls of the student house I live in for a house party; the Toad creation was all mine
- also created some lime walls in that house
- am currently participating in creating a 'wall of inspiration' in the office I share with my co-worker. Here's something from the wall, something another colleague said: 'don't bother trying to influence that; it would be like trying to stop the tides.'
- have been reading about 'surface engineering' and 'coating techniques' for my work. As it turns out, there is quite some chemistry involved in keeping walls&buildings intact.
