    Welcome Oakville Girly - glad to have you join!
    One can only dream of what never was
    and as for what "really is,"
    remember:
    it doesn't exist.

    Posting this calligram just for fun. This is by the French poet Apollinaire, Guillaume, who is a forefather of surrealism 20180613_201118-1195x2124.jpg

    That reminds me of (long, long ago) when I was studying typing at school (on the old sit up and beg manual typewriters - you know, the type you see in museums !!) We had to use the keyboard symbols, spacing etc to draw pictures. I loved it. I must have been more creative than I remember as a kid.

    Great story! And I also remember how people would create pictures with the old for matrix printers!
