  1. “Ah, love, let us be true
    To one another! for the world, which seems
    To lie before us like a land of dreams,
    So various, so beautiful, so new,
    Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
    Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
    And we are here as on a darkling plain
    Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
    Where ignorant armies clash by night.”


  2. Crawl Under your Desktop is a beautifully haunting image to look at. I could relate to this myself, as I fear for the future of technology, and how it could hold us hostage in a digital universe. My fears of cyber terrorism and constantly hearing news stories and articles about it, keep me under my desk, hiding, afraid of what may come. I really can’t take my eyes off of the dark shadows and grey tones.
