  1. I have a book illustrated by Kay Neilsen - Well weird.... Very narrow humans and refracted light and luminosity in the dark - great troll beings too. I baught it not knowing about the artist and the book was sealed in plastic - what a treat when I opened it up - look for the picture of the women on the polar bear - one of my favourites - the bear is pure power, and teh woman light....

    Long ago on facebook you had a picture of a women in the moon in blue looking coyly at the painter - a narrow image - always reminds me of my life (who is called Lunar!)

    A good theme..

    Could you do an Ember one? Ember is my daughter!
