Topic for AUGUST 2020 👣CARPET CRAWLERS👣
This month’s topic was chosen by @caro120 - I challenged her to come up with a topic, and she replied:
“just inspired by fact could do with a hoover here and not got round to it yet.
‘Carpet Crawlers’ was a track by early genesis who did very odd video! got the song but not the lightshow film thingy they projected onto back of stage… all i remember was long carpet fibres and people weaving in and out of it, must have been shag pile lol! It makes me think also of those electron microscope piccies of dust mites; could also be fleas, developmental steps of babies, our cat we took in once made his home in a roll of carpet outside the house - he could be a carpet crawler.”
