“If I could find anything blacker than black, I’d use it.” ~ J. M. W. Turner

This is probably the nearest I come to narrative and story telling. The images sit separately and are self contained. They could be the equivalent of “short stories”.

“Most men’s minds are dim mirrors, in which all truth is seen, as St. Paul tells us, darkly … so that if we do not sweep the mist laboriously away, it will take no image. But, even so far as we are able to do this, we have still the distortion to fear . . .” ~ Ruskin
