Brain Cells is a whimsical and imaginative view of what part of my brain might look like under a microscope. There are probably paisley-patterned creatures sloshing around in there. Perhaps there are segmented sections of information, seeking a place to grab hold and settle in. There are certainly sparks of illuminated light in my brain, as well as dark and crowded corners. Strands of small, button-like cells may be trying to hold memories together in some of my brain spaces. And straight-edged, sharp-cornered structures surely and stubbornly exist, although they may be pink with polka dots. It seemed appropriate to add pajama fabric, as my brain gets lazier with age.
