Signs at the Oregon Zoo
in Washington Park
Portland, Oregon

Signs are any kind of visual graphics created to display information to a particular audience. This is typically manifested in the form of wayfinding information in places such as streets or on the inside and outside buildings. Signs vary in form and size based on location and intent, from more expansive banners, billboards, and murals, to smaller street signs, street name signs, sandwich boards and lawn signs. Newer signs may also use digital or electronic displays. [from wikipedia]

where I am but a filament, splinter, nub.

A whale and seals were part of a painting titled, "Open Sea." That painting read:

Let me be pure salt spirit where whale can float
and sing, where plankton drift, and I am free
no road, no sign, no boundary.
