@AnasaziWrites - what a stunning photo (and cool shallow focus on the beautiful script as well). Clever!

And thank you for confirming my "bots" theory about high view counts on random posts, @Erica McPhee - as well as for your kind thoughts about my "Celestial/Heavenly". @tiffany.c.a - yes! bleach! also a bit of salt.

@Cyril Jayant - your drawings are so much fun!

This prompt ended up with a sort of conceptual piece for me: Shallow = Vapid (and I get a V for my alphabet).

Then I get some visual puns in: (hey, @Zivio - this might be your sort of thing; not exactly pedantry, but some intellectual free-associating)

The shimmer ink gives a reference to Thomas Gray's poem about a cat drowned in a bowl of goldfish, ending with the admonition:
Not all that tempts your wandering eyes
And heedless hearts, is lawful prize;
Nor all that glisters, gold.


The shimmer ink on the V is Diamine's "Tempest" as in "tempest in a teapot"
The mirror in the bowl of the V mirrors the eye of the beholder.
Which is the "I" of the beholder (and my first self-portrait!)
And the ink on the "apid" of Vapid is called "Alice" from the novel "Through the Looking Glass"

@K-2
This one is brilliant. Clever. Sophisticated. Introspective. Self effacing. Conceptually complex and well executed. Wow. Love it.

@K-2  Yes, absolutely my sort of thing! Among other things, the study of the "science of creativity," we'll call it, captured my attention for many, many years. Free-association, intellectual, intuitive, or happenchance, was very much the hallmark of many techniques that I'd passed along in our work team trainings to improve our collaborative and individual creative problem-solving! 

Thanks, for the tag! I'm always interested in what you have to say, and learning and laughing along!
