Archy



"...insects have
their own point
of view about
civilization..."

From "certain maxims of archy" by archy (with help from Don Marquis)

Stunning picture-- if this was an accidental paint smudging it is still very lovely to look at. I like how the texture changes on the building, the brick foundation.

Excellent, all of it. I carry this one home to my lair:

"i once heard the survivors
of a colony of ants
that had been partially
obliterated by a cow s foot
seriously debating
the intention of the gods
towards their civilization"

Evocative as well as descriptive. Same to be said for Don Marquis.

Like the shrub matching up with the scratched wall, but I especially like that the arch looks full of dream clouds.

What's up with school?

Great! Not only the photo and the quotation, but also the trompe l'oeil.
