    This has made me smile. Very good work, Tammera. That’s what you call a thinking cap I suppose, lol. The only thing is I can’t figure out if it is getting put on or off. Quite a puzzle or even a maze. Now looking at the title think I have got it all completely wrong. Lol.

  • THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL OF JUST WHAT IS BEING EXCHANGED…
    CHECK IT OUT VERY LARGE AND PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TOO THE DETAILS OF THE TYPES OF SKULLS …;)

    Ooh! sorry Tammera don’t know what happened there. Its doubled up but the first comment is missing the last sentence. Odd. Perhaps you can delete the excess so I don’t look a complete and utter plonker. Lol.

    This just gets better and better. I did read the info on your image but I missed the bit about what was being offered and being retained.
    This is such clever thinking, Tammera.

    So cool!!! Love your sense of humour!!!!

    I am sure you could give us a whole story of this…how it has been created in your min…how it has been depicted from your vision….
    More than irony I feel a sort of theatrical communication between the intelligent and the fool individuals…the ones that have the control and others that are loosing their heads…their inner source of light. This is really a chorus line, where I could enjoy a dancing and a choreography of some silly conversations and purely showing off about what ones is wishing to make others to beleive.
    I love the using of dummies, or skeletons, or unfleshy personages, because it puts our imagination at a high speed…creating new words, images and inner life…it is highly symbolic…Great!!

  • AW AS AKWAY DEAR ROSA YOU SEE WITH EYES BEYOND AND OH SO VERY ACUTELY CORRECT…THE MEANING PLAYED IN THIS ENCOMPASSES SO MANY ASPECTS OF HUMANITY AND YOU HAVE SO SPECIALLY POINTED OUT JUST SOME THAT I HAD NOT WRITTEN,,,,IT IS ALWAYS SUCH A PLEASURE TO READ YOUR THOUGHTS ON THINGS…THANK YOU MY DEAR LOVED ONE…;)
