Work­ing on Amper­Art #83, Straight & Nar­row, I thought of my dad, my moth­er, my broth­ers & sis­ter, some of my rel­a­tives & most of my friends, for they all define the phrase “Straight & Narrow”:

The way of prop­er con­duct & moral integrity.

Sev­er­al peo­ple who have fol­lowed the Straight & Nar­row path are:

Gand­hi
Moth­er Teresa
George Washington
Abra­ham Lincoln
Richard Nixon oops — scratch that
Mar­tin Luther King
Leo Buscaglia
War­ren Buffett
Stephen R. Covey
Denis Waitley
John Wayne
Roy Rogers
Jesus

I wish I could say my path had less detours & bumps in it, but just ain’t so. In fact, this Amper­Art piece, Straight & Nar­row, was cre­at­ed & issued only 10 min­utes before the mid­night dead­line on May 31, 2015, to meet my quo­ta of at least one new Amper­Art edi­tion per month. The time zone is PDT (Pacif­ic Day­light Sav­ings), which allowed me to cheat, as it was already June 1 else­where. Is that what they mean by “artis­tic license”? A lit­tle crooked, I suppose.


I select­ed a no-​nonsense font, Times Roman, for the words “straight” & “nar­row,” but a fun & fan­cy amper­sand, which straight­ened out to fol­low the Straight & Nar­row path when it was time to be seri­ous & responsible.

  1. Yes, this is anoth­er extreme­ly clever Amper­Art and won­der­ful dis­play of your tal­ent, Chaz! I love this main­ly because it is so decep­tive­ly sim­ple yet has such depth in mean­ing. Your beau­ti­ful design work and insight­ful com­ments bring me joy!
