    the murmuring subsided, an ominous silence descended over the arena as a lone figure appeared on what, due to the sheer mass of the audience, seemed to be an all together inadequately small stage. Lit by a singular diffused soft light to the stage right, a column of cigar smoke headed to the stars, delivered powerfully in a deliberate, appreciative plume. Dancing at the periphery of the light shaft, elements of our host, involuntary twitches of cheek musculature choreographed shadows across a chiseled profile. One could sense it as a knowing, confident entity. An unwavering, some may say exuberant and confident voice greeted the crowd, a crowd who had sat for hours, coiled to almost breaking point in anticipation. They seemed to hang on every word, and as the address began one could sense a collective release of tension.

    "Ladies and Gentlemen" said Jim, "you have waited this long, and whilst I have become somewhat acclimatised to creating magic, this endeavour goes beyond that. Thank you for your time, your belief, your trust". Stepping fully into the light we see that Jim is not alone, in his right hand he is holding a plain box, a plain brown cardboard box, no markings, no branding, simple. Reaching in he stopped, looked at the crowd and gave a grin ..........

    are we getting close?

    I admit a few Whiskeys infused my bloodstream this night....

    Haha, cheers Elsie, a number of edits were required, one eyed edits...
    I for one, and if I had a rotund and voluptuous beer belly, will be breaking out the oversized wooden salad spoons for a round of air drums, pounded out on said voluminous abdominal body part, to the time honoured classic of 'In the Air Tonight' by Phill Collins as and when this puppy gets revealed...

    Nice Marc.
    An explorer explores new ideas and things, but somebody stuck in mud, complains.
    - But the explorer complains about how much better the territory he has discovered is instead.

    -Since when has denying that the possible is possible been reason? Such is the life of some skepticism.
    -Normalcy involves what is realistically possible, not just what you say.

    The ability to explore one's full potential is a rare thing, and when it happens we either benefit from the results or weep at the consequences.
    Whatever it is, I look forward to the benefits of this latest bit of inspiration.

    Jim comes up for air about once a month so I imagine we should be headed for an update sometime soon, let's hope it's all good...

    I need to make this a print. And Jarred needs a copy.

    Born in 1975. I hope your words catch on to me as well ;)
    Something witty this way comes.

    Ok... I can't wait to hear more.

    Can you give us an idea of the amount of money needed to get into this new "thing"?

    Why do I feel there is a Holodeck somewhere on an island in the pacific.
