    Post November Entry: The Great Expedition

    This is a place holder. I normally would not do something like this, but I thought of something totally whimsical and nonsensical and since my brain tends to work that way... I am going to give it a go. The below image more than likely has nothing to do with the final output except that this is a planet and the final image (if I complete) will contain one or more planets. I don't want to say to much until I get a bit further along, so for now, that's all you get. Oh, one more hint...there might be gnomes involved...

    Ooo a Gnome-Star, cool!

    Or maybe a Dyson Sphere (I think that's what they are called), built by Gnomes.

    Or.... you could read the thread title and think of what that might have to do with a map...

    hmmm.... gnomes have been driven off the earth and have squeezed into spaceships and are looking for a new place to live but without a map and without any control of their spaceship???

    My bet: Roaming Gnomes.

    Or... Roaming Space Gnomes...

    Complete with photos of lawn gnomes from exotic places across the galaxy.

    Well, I promise you there will be no inanimate statues or travel agency commercials in my entry.

    Beyond that... I can't promise anything....
