Belly laugh on the birds
I can’t say enough how this podcast brings me so much joy. Love talking about the birds from M. Sull class as my birds are lop sided, crooked and unable to perch anywhere. But seriously, thanks for talking to the Who’s who of the Calligraphy world and bring them their stories. These masters have learned it from someone and pay it forward to the next. By the third season, these ladies keep getting even better, more confident, and a joy to listen.
I just finished season two and i really enjoyed all the episodes.
Keep going girls.
All love and respect from Kurdistan :D
