  9. I was torn between two memories from the image. The first was the Christmas slot car set and the disrepair it would be left in after the first few days of taking it apart and experimenting with other shapes. Not having enough track to do much more than either the oblong zero or the figure eight. Interesting your take on speeding fast below the belt, the cars would seem to more likely "jump track" after the twist too. As you can see I went with another memory altogether. Cheers,

  15. I was into handcuffs and then I read Rel. So before I read anyone else, I decided to 'have a go'. The Cut is the end product!

  17. Something just clicked--something I had meant to say--and suddenly this picture symbolically held it all and so here I am. I have enjoyed so much reading the poetry here, perhaps that's what helped me to find the words.

  19. Hi Tess, I wanted to write something more about Kline, but this is more about the darkness of the painting. I love the reading of yours. k.
