    Blimey, I'm going to have to use that...!

  2. Thank you Shan. Often, an image leaps into my mind the instant I settle upon a line to illustrate. This was one of those times. I am sure that in some strange way, the words "high abstracted man" called to mind those incredibly simple human silhouettes we see on signs, doors to restrooms, and so on. "High abstracted man" indeed.
