    I did a portrrait of Shakespeare long ago, probably in junior high. About all I remember of it is that lots of people said his eyes followed them around the room. Like most of my work I have know idea what I did with it.

    Well, clearly what happened was that it fell through a tear in the space-time continuum, through which you swiftly jumped after it, only to wind up in 1610, where your artwork naturally flew to meet its inspiration, whom you then honored by painting a portrait.
    The moment you put the final touch on it, space-time opened back up and brought you back where you belong.

    The energy for all this came from your first Shakespeare portrait which, after linking our time and his, turned to dust.
