Moody Monday: Indecent -

"Collect The Entire Set"
digital collage by Mick Mather
This week's theme at Moody Monday has more than its share of twists and turns on the road to conceptualization. My first thought for indecent was to illustrate these two choices for the top dis-honor. While the naughty matchbook cover might lead to a weakening of the soul and spirit, is it truly any worse than the cigarette that fouls the body, the temple? The other idea, arrived at well after completing the piece, is that of the typical, pubescent male who, stealing a smoke behind the shed, was additionally stimulated by particular contents of dad's secret drawer. A swig of cheap, blended scotch mixed with a little grape Nehi and the world could be as perfect as it knows how to be for that fleeting 12 or 15 minutes of forbidden fruit.
