    “So take the photographs and still frames in your mind” is my favorite verse. Memory “snap shots” taken through life, whether good or bad, form who we are. How we process these shots or manipulate them can transform us into the person we truly want to be. Beautiful, emotive piece! xoxo
  • Thank you so much! I really love this song by Green Day… especially the lyrics you mentioned! I have many, many still frames in my mind….one cannot always carry a camera! I think, sometimes, I treasure those even more. Thank you so much for such a lovely and thoughtful comment…it is very much appreciated!

    Yes! It’s something unpredictable—but in the end is right! That’s your work to a T! Love the randomness of some of your elements and the distinct intent of others! It makes it fun!

  • Thank you! Yes…I am random! I love little penguins, for example, and will pop them in whenever I can…in my head they make some sort of sense! It is so much fun to be ‘unpredictable’! Thanks again…always LOVE your comments!
