close, close, close, closer
crisp air knifes through walls of fog
leaves blush, are turned-on

Your perception of me is a reflection of you; my reaction to you is an awareness of me.
Not all shadows are black. The Colored Shadows exhibit is a discovery of the colors hidden in white light. Red, green and blue spotlights shine on a wall. The wall is white because red, blue and green light combine to make white light. These colors are often called the additive primary colors. As you walk (or dance) between the lights and the wall, your body casts three different shadows.
I remember when I discovered this. It was at a wedding when I was about 10 and there were many different coloured spotlights shining on white tablecloths. I had fun making blue shadows in the yellow light and cyan in the red light.
"I want to be a visual artist, but the art world seems to be much more about politics than it is about talent. You have to continually go to galleries and events, so that you can shake the right hands and meet influential people. Extroverted artists seem to have a big advantage."

This x-ray shows the case of an unfortunate woman who happened to have a snake crawl into her vagina, slither through the fallopian tube, and out past the ovary into her body cavity. It survived unknown for three days until the snake started eating her appendix.
Sanskrit for “She who is headless”, Chhinnamasta is one of the Mahavidyas, ten Tantric goddesses and a ferocious aspect of Devi, the Hindu Divine Mother. Chhinnamasta can be easily identified by her fearsome iconography. The self-decapitated goddess holds her own severed head in one hand, a sword in another. Three jets of blood spurt out of her bleeding neck and are drunk by her severed head and two attendants. Chhinnamasta is usually depicted standing on a copulating couple.
