For Mark, just to say thank you. This took days to create.
This is a sad attempt to visualize Mark's crazy-fun and absolutely wonderful storytelling.
I did not do his writing justice but I did want to say thanks. I'll leave it up to all of you to analyze it. :)

oh man, this is anything but a "sad attempt"---it's a packed, wild vision, with monks and sages and (I think) the snake from the garden of eden, and a mythic water carrier, a philosopher (aristotle?) and a contemplating woman , and a lantern (w/ the monk), a strange new creature crossing the river...and an apocalyptic revelation coming from the sky, not to mention a cosmos made of honey and lava and gold and yellows (and a great dark-red burst around the sun)---the sky's almost like a grand altar piece---european or asian---carved in gold and rubies, and pouring down over this Eden-like place. Even the trees are 'beginning-of-days' stuff. (What have you been putting in your coffee recently??? I thought MY visions were wild!) I'm extremely grateful, Barb, and that you spent days doing it---your effort is very visible. (You even have butterflies around the lantern, and an eagle in that light-breaking-through sky.) Terrific, thank you so much! If I tried to make a tale based on this, I'd be writing for weeks! Thank you Barb, this is lush and wonderful, and I appreciate it greatly. (To the ancient Hindus, btw, this would be called "an average thursday"...) It's wonderful!
