But on we go, down paths unknown.
Excitement, yes, and cheers and moans.
The secret is I've done some more 
than what shows here, but what a bore
to give it all away this date.
Oh, no. I think I'll make you wait.

    withholding process is your taunt,
    to see your art you make us want.

  2. Cool gray vs warm gray....changes everything.
