Maybe it’s because I just finished reading the graphic novel “Watchmen” (in anticipation of the movie.) It could be because of it’s very dark, very intricate and layered story. Or maybe I’m just in a weird mood. All I know is, while pondering this week’s IF word, intricate, the above illustration popped into my head.  I created this image years ago for a cover story in the Ventura County Reporter. The story was titled “Body of Evidence, In the struggle for a non-toxic environment, woman may have the most at stake.”

Although not terribly intricate, the story was not exactly light reading either. So this is what I came up with.

I know, it’s a bit of a departure from the usual idioms, bunnies, and kitty antics you’ll usually find scattered across my wee bit of space on the world wide web, but hey, I’m feeling all dark and intricate tonight.

Here, maybe this will detox you from all the uncharacteristic seriousness. Srsly!
