Digital Art
based on a sculpture I did years ago
and on the poem.



---------------------------
Woke up to the third day of my cold
thought I was a bit better by noon
but this evening I am in a lot of distress
with coughs, sniffles, and a headache.

Will try to do the regular blog tomorrow . . . maybe.
