Open Thread WE 3 AUG 22 ~
Here we are. Thanks for stopping by. This OT starts pretty much content free. Enjoyed this
sculpture's work. Brought a few associations. He used special aggregate to not harm the
ocean. He is also a diver / photographer. If you don't see what is potentially descriptive
underwater, why not create a social statement and let the sea creatures decorate them.
Perhaps with the polar ice sheets melting, we will be resembling this scene sooner than
we are led to believe.
Wife is reading a story with a character named Hecate. Prolly not the same one from Paradise.
This one is a female cop. Not a male lawyer. Sure do miss his writing. Good luck wherever you are.
There are plenty of hot topics to discuss: Ukraine, Taiwan, Kosovo, Monkey Pox, domestic failures,
spirit of the strugglers, & etc. So if you find something below the surface to share, swim it on!
