shine on

"you reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
shine on you crazy diamond.
threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
shine on you crazy diamond.
well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter,
you piper, you prisoner, and shine!"

- from "shine on you crazy diamond" by pink floyd

bees are Photoshop brushes I made from bee clip art from the graphics fairy:

here is one example:

i use an iMac and have adobe photoshop cs5 so all i had to do to create the brush is select the bee using the rectangular marquee tool and then go to "edit/define brush preset" and then "ok".

set me free

"darling don't you understand, i feel so ill at ease
the room is full of silence and it's getting hard to breath
take this gilded cage of pain and set me free
take this overcoat of shame, it never did belong to me

it never did belong to me..."

-from "the gift" by annie lennox
