The unconscious takes over


After a series of dense, complicated pictures (see previous "New Urbanist" columns), I wanted to take advantage of my new skills/technology by making quicker, more uncomplicated pictures down by the river.

These would simply have a boat added, an old fashion Galleon, and nothing else!

I would put a nice boat on the river and simply move on!

But they didn't look right without a volcano.

And it seemed churlish not to add a train to any empty train tracks.

A fox in the foreground? A sleeping lion? Yes please.

Birds, big black birds! Turtle! New graffiti! Another boat! 

Remove a boat. More lava! Why is the lava blue? New volcano. Get rid of the fox's fifth leg!


Who's in charge here?

Good question.


  1. That poor fox is looking pretty scawny. I think he should eat a swan or something.

    1. Hey! You of all people should know it tough out there on the gritty streets of Saint Minneapolis!


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
