Should's And Shouldn'ts

"Anything your heart desires will come to you..."

We play with stardust. Pixels are like that. We can puff and spatter clouds of glimmering points just exactly wherever they should be. "Should be."

Ah the strength of that word, should. It's not "must be", "can be", or even, "belong." Nope we artists deal in shoulds... Shoulds! And who is it that determines the "shoulds" in life?

Why there are rule books of course. Somewhere someone taught us the shoulds, right?

Listen to the mustn'ts child,
Listen to the dont's,
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
The impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves
Then listen close to me-
Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be.

GEEK STUFF: Canon EOS 20D, Canon EFS 17-85mm (f4-5.6),1/200@f/8, exposure Bias value: -1, ISO: 400, Focal Length: 79 mm, Date/time: 8/7/7: 4:18 pm, Metering Mode: Average, Camera RAW
Tonight the pixels should glow about and around a flying orange toy alligator because... because... "Anything can be."
