    I think most people in my life would accuse me of being too serious. Now I will take it as a compliment. Wonderful picture.

      Smiles. Perhaps you still need a few stays loosened …
      The picture I fell upon by accident almost.

        I have my moments…when stays are snapped. Hmmm….I am finding a bit of inspiration, creatively speaking.

    You’ve got to love William Butler and those often misunderstood opinions… your paraphrase is truly inventive… My favorite WB quote: “The living can assist the imagination of the dead…” Hope you are having a nice “Holiday” weekend -Mr.RD

    Death while having Sex
    A beautiful conundrum?
    The ultimate mind-F?
    The only way to go?

    I’m still pondering the quote. I’m not sure if I agree yet.
