Great images. I love masks and the power of masks. I was reading a book about Charlie Parker today and the author used the word 'factoid', you naturally sprang to mind. Take care.

Greetings, Reverend! And even these 'dime store' masks hold so much strange power... does that mean anything for us?


Hi kenflett, he seems to never quite catch the radar. I know those images of course, but never read the text... currently searching for a copy of the words.
