Wiki time

This first image is a piece of art i found free at  I love the texture in the upper left corner. There was no name of the artist. I liked it as it was but also saw opportunity to play with colours and the "spherize" treatment in Photoshop.
You can tell it's the same image but now maybe a colourful fat fish?

She was determined to memorize it all even if it killed her.

(from "miss kilmansegg and her precious leg")

Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold!
Bright and yellow, hard and cold,
Molten, graven, hammer'd, and roll'd;
Heavy to get, and light to hold;
Hoarded, barter'd, bought and sold,
Stolen, borrow'd, squander'd, doled:
Spurn'd by the young, but hugg'd by the old
To the very verge of the churchyard mould;
Price of many a crime untold;
Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold!
Good or bad a thousand-fold!
How widely its agencies vary -
To save - to ruin - to curse - to bless -
As even its minted coins express,
Now stamped with the image of Good Queen Bess,
And now of a Bloody Mary!

Thomas Hood . 1798-1844
