The title here is the first line of a 1969 hit song by Zager & Evans. Can you come up with the next line? No cheating... it must be in your memory bank... you canít go to the web.

All C&C's welcome

I'm posting this one because it's fun even though it's a bit to "science fictiony" for my taste. Sometime these things just happen.

"If woman can survive [they] will find..." Well, sort of right, right? Yeah, I was around in the 60's...Berkeley even!

Science fictiony but also earthy and feels like evolution...good stuff!

Haha! You beat me to it Chuas2.

I really like this one James. I particularly like the overlapping and interlocking elements to the right. There is a lot of depth in that area.

Chuas.... you got it. I don't think many remember it but you having been at the center of the universe (Berkeley) at the time must give you a special insight.

Graphicali... I thought that area of the image was fun too.

Thank you both for posting your comments.

Maybe, but it would have been even more impressive if someone residing in Scotland had gotten it. I think verDoorn and I had an unfair Californian advantage.

Looking further at this piece, it reminds me of something I heard about there being about fifty thousand pieces of space "junk" floating about the earth's orbit. Maybe waiting to do some irreparable harm to our planet at some point. It is a thought provoking piece!

Chuas... my advantage during the 60's was from North Dakota. California was just a dream.

Mark.... thanks for taking the time to post.
