Years ago, when I was active in a singles club, I had a dream in which I made a date with a woman and she stood me up. The next day, I went looking for her and found her at a social event. When I confronted her about her no-show, she refused to talk to me and turned to leave. I grabbed her by the left arm to stop her--but her arm separated from her body at the shoulder. As she disappeared into the crowd, I examined the arm and saw that it was a wooden artificial limb. Some years later, I made this musicollage, inspired by that dream, and by my impressions of people I met in the singles scene.
