Wow!  Congratulations, DevlinDLC.
MadameLavender, you're in great company.

The microcosmic nature of your entries seems to have carried enormous messages about the true nature of (in)tolerance.

Often, it's the actual words that resonate that makes or breaks a visual piece, not just the visual.
You created both Dev !!
