it was amazing

Just as charming as I remembered it. Reread it to remind myself that it is not necessarily a bad thing I am giving up a squiggly life for a straight line life for at least a while. Inspiring! And beautifully, simply done. Treat yourself to a few minutes of a perfect picture book.
(For adults. I wouldn't want a girl to have the dot as a role model or a boy to emulate the line's affections and wooing, but I don't think that is really the intention or the point. He has an idea to convey and a fun way to tell it, and uses an archetypical romance story as an easy vehicle. )
