Wow! Thanks, Vimeo!

Greg Whitmore, the videographer who made the short film of me and The Map, called me this afternoon to say that the editors of Vimeo, the website where we posted the clip, had listed ours as a "favorite" on their homepage. Now over 50,000 people have seen it. Wow!

You can check it out by searching "Jerry Gretzinger" at vimeo.com. (Sorry I am not organized enough to give you a simple link.)

But a huge thank you to Greg and to Vimeo and to son, Henry, and to the folks who have posted very nice comments after seeing The Map!

  1. Just saw the video as well... truly amazing. And the enjoyment you get talking about it :-) ... priceless.

    Love to buy some of your work; thinking of several connecting pages so the work pieces of a map puzzled together truly come out. Tell me if you can part with some of your work, what works best for you.

  2. Thanks for the note! Take a look at eBay, and I will check out mail rates to Switzerland. (My great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Derendinger, was born near Zurich.....)

  3. Jerry,

    Had a look on Ebay (searching for 'Jerry Gretzinger') but cannot find your work. Which keyword(s) work better?

    Otherwise feel free to send me an email directly.

  5. Dear Jerry. I am ElĂ­sabet of Iceland. I was truly impressed with your map. Good luck with it. It will be 50 years old in only two years... can´t imagine where it will take you before then :) Be safe.

  6. I saw the video on a website I try to frequent every day. I hopped online and was overjoyed to find that you have a blogspot. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS! Keep up the good work, I will follow this as much as I possibly can.
