snufalufagus and living now

Before I begin, I am an allergy sufferer.  My nickname is snufalufagus because of my constant stuffy nose (especially upon waking up).  This past fall was absolute torture for me.  Winter, while providing some relief, is not much better.

I’m tired of having to constantly blow my nose.  I am thinking of turning to a neti pot.  It’s a cross between Aladdin’s lamp and a tea pot. You pour salt-water into your nasal passages and it’s suppose to help alieveate your sinus pain, throat ailments, etc.

Has anyone tried this?  I am becoming desperate.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Live Now is a project that is centered around the idea of “living now”.  It was started by artist/illustrator/graphic designer Eric Smith.  He was diagnosed with cancer and changed the way he viewed the world.  To express this, he started Live Now, which is a collection of artists and illustrators making work dedicated to this idea.  They have gallery shows and posters for sale showcasing their work.  It includes so great artists, including Mike Perry and Skinny Ships, Richard Perez.  Check out some of the work (individual artists do not have their names on each page of the site):

    April swears by the neti pot as does Dr. Oz. Can’t hurt to try it.
