When life gives you lemons, they tell you to make lemonade. That's an over-simplification. Sometimes, there's not enough sweetness in your life; lemonade needs a lot of sugar to overpower the bitterness. I always let the ice cubes melt to dilute it.

I've got my own little cliche for days like today, when everything goes bizarre and all I can do is sit here and wonder what just happened. A few years ago, I heard a pair of art students trying to out-reference each other in a discussion of the merits of modern art as art. One said, "What are Piet Mondrian's works reacting to? The invasion of Holland by Flatland?"

So, when you get invaded by Flatland, paint like Piet Mondrian. The book, painting style, and cliche are all over-simplifications, in their own way. It has a symmetry. It fits. Just watch out for acute triangles.

I guess that means I should call this my Composition I in Red, Blue and Yellow. I don't know what's going on, but I think I'm not going to find out anything unless I ask. My name's Joseph Wilson. If anyone wants to help me fill in some of the blank spots, I've got a lot of questions. I grabbed the brochures, I've had some time to play with this device, and I'm not getting any less confused.
