A Christin's Life is Like Architectural Hand-Lettering

Modeling our life after good architectural lettering provides some simple and clear techniques for living the good life:

1. Honor the legibility and consistency of your moral life above all else.

2. Use guide lines (rubrics, hedges) to ensure uniformity and clarity in all your decisions.

3. Emphasize in your outward actions your inward motivations of love and compassion.

4. Give your actions a slight upward tilt to convey hope.

5. Curve your judgments like a balloon to provide fullness and dignity.

6. Be attentive to the space and time between what you say and what you do. Be accountable.

(Inspired by Matthew Frederick's 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School)
