member of:Observers of the Interdependence of Domestic Objects and Their Influence on Everyday Life

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

U is for Upheaval

From Basoli's Alphabet

Please excuse the long absence...

In the meantime, go create your very own minute-masterpiece on this fantastic site. I've been enjoying a much-needed rest with it today while miraculously snowed-in (!!) in this place that knows not what to do with snow...
