Is it me or is Blogger just really slow. Any who good morning Laurian.

I like the picture, it's hard to make out what it would do for you when you're actually standing in front of it, like certain paintings. I can still shoot myself for not being patient enough at the Louvre. The queue was sooooo long I just refused to wait any longer and said it was just a painting.

we have a lot of 'modern art' installations here in bombay... dashed if i can figure out what they mean.

there's this one made of really large nails, that looks like an ice-cream of some sort... turns out to be a 'representation of tension between india and pakistan'.
