Object to be Destroyed by Man Ray


Life is surreal
Keeping an eye on the clock
Time's up... tick tock-
Bong bong bong.

  4. Love all the sounds... I once went on a retreat where they took all our watches, phones, etc. away and we had no concept of time. It was very awkward.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
