It is impossible I find to look at any piece in the same way again when you hear the inspiration behind it. I don't think this is a bad thing though often I think it helps me to look deeper at the piece.

I had to change it, try something new out for a change (and confuse as many people as possible in the process :paranoid: )

Intresting decription.
It makes me curious to know more.
I like it a lot Omaha, but when I read the dedication it makes me feel uncomfortable, like a voyeur intruding, makes me think of people trapped in a damaging pattern of self-harming behaviour, unable to break free, not so much flying in circles, more like crashing in circles.
As always, thanks for sharing.

it is a bit voyeuristic, but I think I may be slightly :O I am fascinated with documentaries and biographies and other people and what they do and who they I almost naturally sort of fell into feeling like I need to remember things, or other people won't, and if you don't tell other people their stories, and then that person died...I think it would be much sadder...and your description of the piece is spot on...everyone there was pretty much crashing on circles. and we'd leave..but we always come back.

I'm glad you like it though :)
