Your mission (cue Mission Impossible theme music), should you choose to accept it, is to craft an essay from the cascade of pics to follow. They say a picture, or a painting, is worth a thousand words. I think pictures and paintings are worth many more words than a thousand and I would like to see and share your unique perspective. If you submit your essay to me I will make it part of this post and there is no limit to the number of essays I will post — the more the merrier. Once again, for those who still don’t know, the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use it to submit your essay if you’re interested in submitting an essay. Now, for the pics that are worth so many words and implore you to put those words in print.
