Stephen King says that writing is telepathy. What he means is that I can describe an object, a scene or a person, you can read that, and the image has been transmitted into your mind without my saying anything.

It’s not a perfect metaphor nor is the transmission of thought perfect. It is useful, though. I am trying to get something that lives in my head into your head. The same is true for all art and, for that matter, all forms of communication.

I just finished a little water color I’m going to attach to this blog. What does it say to you? I did title it, but what does it say without a title? Describing the picture doesn’t count. Tell me, if you’ll play along, what is happening in the picture?
