While in Nepal and India, kids would often approach me asking for pens and pencils. Returning home, I had a number of pencils made to give away or leave behind on future travels. They read: "Ars Longa, Vita Brevis" which is latin for "Life is Short, the Art Long." As they are used, the opportunity to create is reduced. To date, I've dropped pencils in Australia, Austria, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Singapore, (South) Korea, Taiwan, and the United States.
