Time comes and goes, deadlines also.
and this is lovely 
but a little humor too:

You know I'm such a fool for EU
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?

The DUP are Unionists, unless of course it involves human righst as in the rest of the EU. Hypocrites.

I've made a little sociopath... (ugh) sociopolitical experiment at work today: I asked people to write down the name of any famous person that came to their mind as I was making the request. Everybody (myself included) thought about Theresa May...

Thinking about fine art today, as we have a lot of music here now.

So for the EU, this came to mind:

and for the UK, this Georgia O'Keefe is pretty good.

Just darken the blue, brighten the red, and change the cow skull to a sheep skull...

That's it for now.

Relaxing with a large art history book and a pot of Elderberry tea. Will see what else emerges on the fine art front over the course of the weekend.

A long time ago, when The Black Cube thread was first started, daveangel and dibble were discussing which of them was the better artist.
Dibble was for Turner and Dave for Constable, as I recall.

piano intro - and funny apropos lyrics too
The path is clear
Though no eyes can see
The course laid down long before.
And so with gods and men
The sheep remain inside their pen,
Though many times they've seen the way to leave. ... hehe

and then some years later:
Will TM turn it on again? Not sure!
