    this is the dream i had last night.
    this is my state of mind.
    this is not a photograph it is the most glorious abstract painting.
    this is divine, the way those tiny ultra-focused transparent raindrops contast with the acid-dropping blurry coloured background…i would love this as a screen saver..
    wow wow wow… makes me gasp

    hi feedthedog,

    wow wow wow to you! thank you so much and i am so glad you like it!

    focused and blurry — is that where you are at in your head? i think we’ve all been there (and some of us still are).

    thanks for your insightful comment! 🙂
