Surface: Decorated 1

No matter where you are in the world, someone will have covered a flat surface with some form of decoration, carving or graffiti.  From the grandest palace to the humblest corner on the street we seem to have an innate

Of suburbs and spiders

The move is done.  Most of my possessions are sitting in a storage facility.  The rest have been sold, given away, thrown away or are currently being sifted through to determine their fate.  Credulous friends and colleagues raise a querying
