my definition of depth? When I can't reach the bottom with my toes and keep my nose above the water (-;

I'm out of mine, most of the time. Especially where the ladies are concerned.

Deep thoughts aren't as much fun as rash decisions! I still prefer living in the mottled shady section of Life..too bloody hot in the light and too freakin' scary in the dark.

I like your new digs :)

Dave but at least you have a suggestion of a lady or more in your life, to be able to make a comment like that!

this is a new word for me
"chiaroscuro"

the term "heightened illusion" is new to me...but the concept is not...

I first learnt it about two and a hlaf years ago

but I knew the concept before that - adding black to anything makes the colours seem brighter (I learnt that while I was knitting ponchos)
