Intelligent Design

Perhaps two years ago this image sprang to mind, fully formed.
I saw a great king, something of a Giant, decked out in major royal headgear, jewelry and robes, more Aztec than Egyptian.
He was standing in his open air throne room which was a huge slab of stone floating above lush jungle.
With his staff he was controlling what he saw in the jungle below him. Magnificent dinosaurs, plumed like the most extravagant parrots and birds of paradise, fought for his pleasure. They were his toys. He had built them.

Maiden Mother Crone

Map of the Moon.
Beautifully rendered by Jean-Dominique Cassini. (1679)

Don't Try This At Home

A friend of mine took the chance and opened one of THOSE emails.
He shared his findings with me. I share them with you:

Once or twice I clicked on these junk emails and they have these weird
texts that have nothing to do with anything.  This one has even less than
that.  The subject heading was "Locate your Ymate online in your area!"
Dig it:

"I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice,
improvisation then going away shovelbill doing the exact opposbonzie.

The look and feel of this SF landscape still haunts many Montrealers.
Vague memories if not of the Expo year itself, then of Man & His World come and go.
So little is left standing.
