Just what happens when you start what you think will be a fun pillow fight...someone gets too exuberant, and pretty soon there are tears!

Love the lines of green...eerrr...stuff, VZ.
vz-nostalgia: "...and pretty soon there are tears!"
Haha, Ray. I wrote a little poem, which included this line: "...a lonely tear will carve a path along a dusty cheek..." (or something like that. I didn't post the verses, as I found them a bit too much for this image ). So, you are spot on. smile

Not sure what I'm looking at (well, I can see the feather!) but I like it. What is the beautiful gree? It looks a bit like moss, a bit like layers of fabric.
vz-nostalgia: Moss... fabric... that's not important, Ian. I'm after an emotional, not an encyclopedic side of you here. smile

Oh yes, what has happened, VZ? I'm afraid I have "spinach on my eyes" ! Your title is fitting. Perhaps somebody could pic up the white feather looking tattered and torn, but I'm afraid it (she?) has been traumatized for ever!
vz-nostalgia: A tragedy happened, Ms. Philine. A tragedy of an ancient Greek or Roman play proportions. Think of Sophocles, Euripides, or Seneca here. smile
Yes Vik: this delicate feather floating on a rippling bed of green gunge probably doesn't have too many uplifting prospects ahead...
vz-nostalgia: Ha. The other line from the little poem I wrote was "..the point of no return has passed.." So, you're exactly right about not many choices for the feather. smile

Beautiful and like from another world....love the green background - very nice contrast
vz-nostalgia: It's beautiful precisely because it is from another world, Aksel. smile

...a sacrifice borne away on a cushion of velvety green.
vz-nostalgia: ...and the question is: "Was it worth it?". smile
OK so this is a Don Henley song? Ex Eagles. Eagle feathertongue Did he play a concert at Piedmont Park?

Anyway it's an excellent composition, which is more than most of the Eagles songs were...except for Desperado
vz-nostalgia: Ha. You're right, Bill. I had to google for that one. I'm not a fan of Eagles, and was always puzzled by their sold out arenas. Why would anybody pay $120 to hear the Hotel California one more time? smile

speaking of fun pillow fights - http://laughingsquid.com/pillow-fight-in-san-francisco/

looks like this feather was on the losing end of the fight.

Great work as usual, Viktor!
suz.
vz-nostalgia: A Pillow Fighting Club. That must be fun. Are you a member? Looks like all the fun now is in San Francisco. I miss it already.
I think for this feather the game has been already lost. :-(

What amazes me most, Viktor, is that this feather has remained "pure" in spite of its grungy environment. That's saying something!
vz-nostalgia: Yes, but not for long, Ms. Ginnie. smile
This is obviously a new translation of ~Ophelia, that tragic maiden who gave her life for (lack of) love. Actually, it's very impressive. i like it a lot.
vz-nostalgia: Oh, what a task you gave me, Ms. Jamoula. I'll be thinking from now on how to portray Hamlet... smile
