Picture

PICTURE, n. A representation in two dimensions of something wearisome in three.
"Behold great Daubert's picture here on view —
Taken from Life." If that description's true,
Grant, heavenly Powers, that I be taken, too.
—Jali Hane

Your update about pictures is true. Still, they're worth a thousand words.

A picture tells a different story. Or so I am told.

Not so wearinsome:
"Hey Babe, you wanna come up and see my etchings."

That's my 93-year old golfing bud's line too, except it is to see pictures of his Texas Blue Bonnet patch.

Love your definition. Kind of goes with Rod Stewart's "every picture tells a story" which sounds so banal but is so beautiful

Pictures, n. Moments frozen in time -- expect for Tuesday's at Thom's, only the best one's are saved.

TLP, you're right. It's a long fiction.

Sauerkraut, were you told by word by image?

Thom, I'd bet against that.

Jim, that old rake.

Nicole, and you're the master.

Thanks, Pia.

Well curated, Karen.

Karma, there's no dispute as far as I'm concerened.
