This work arrived late last week and I'm not sure if Sloan reworks his pieces or not, but the balance, color and layering is sophisticated to the point where your eye is at rest and roams almost simultaneously.  The stark black and white form with a hint of color reminds me of my imaginings of how a bee would search for a flower's nectar.  How on earth he makes you search [looking] and allows you to be calm [feeling] at the same time is amazing.

This envelope made me feel right at home in the eternal network.  I'm sure you will agree!

Many thanks, friend!

Thanks BG, Rebecca, Alicia - thoughtful comments indeed. The lone stamp at the bottom right was made by E-Ambassador of Utopia.

(BG didn't include the secret message from The Clinic. The re-programming worked. He's our Manchurian Candidate.)

I love that it has some of the elements I understand in traditional poetry too.

eloquent piece. Fluent and yet strong horizontals and verticals mesh well in a peaceful way. Nice DVS. I really like this work and Borderline, your description as well.
