A Girl’s Best Friend?*

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 12:25 AM

Continued from September 3rd, 2013.

On that date, there were two posts in this journal:

"The Stone" today suggests…"* and
"An End in Itself."

The former dealt with some philosophy and 
mathematics related to graphic design.

The latter dealt with death and finality.

The New York Times  today has an obituary
that, revisiting Sept. 3rd, unites the topics of
death and design.
