I love that quote!

Hey Mick, is this a swatch of hair ripped from a guy's back after a waxing treatment?

No really, I love the softness of this and the autumn colors ;)

ROFLMAO! Do you have a willing volunteer in mind? :D

Another stunning image of "nothing" and of everything....the center is gorgeous, but what charms me just as much are the subtle echoes of pattern in the whoite border.

Public hair - no typo (at least not in this sentence). :)

I just read a story about a man who collected dead flies. What have you collected? Shaving rests?

I came to think of Brazilian wax...

I've lived much like the quote states, and what good became of me...

Fascinating. Very touchy-feely.

Intriguing piece - I like the glowing almost person in contrast with the background.

Looks like good nest making material:)

Love that quote, it's brilliant.

Thanks so much, John. Much of the credit goes to more then one of my favorite filters in the super secret array that offers that hairy look.

LOL @ shaving rests! My most important collection is the set of X-rays of my own broken heart. :|

Only to think of it, Susu? I recommend the full Brazilian treatment, no matter what good might or might not come.
When considering the good we do as opposed to knowing the result of it in life is like proofreading your own writing - it can't be done.

I'm glad you think so, C ... some of the others seem to find it hairy in a less-than-touchy-feely way - except Susu who's prepared to get rid of it all!

There is a person there ... all over the place actually. The base of the pattern is made from a person.

Lisa Sarsfield:
I thought you might notice the nestiness of this one. The quote seemed quite suitable to me as well. :)

This one does seem to be different for you-- and it does look quite hairy :-) but we will call it texture-- which I love by the way.
And artists have got to dare to be different--

LOL @ "we will call it texture". Admittedly this particular look is a bit different since I'm not overly fond of the hairy look and seldom use it for posts. :)

Hey Mick, long time no comment, my appologies. Reading through these comments adds a whole other dimension to this piece.

No need for apologies ... just the blogging is work enough without getting into the comments. I'm glad you got something more from this piece, however. :)

Thank you, Steve ... is that Roy G Biv on your tee-shirt there?
