Absent-minded professor

"Colour travels around the head of the professor like thoughts through neuro-pathways. My father was a professor, and to me this painting feels like him. I once mocked him for being lost in his own thoughts, and he replied, “Do not laugh at your father. I am not your past, I am you future.”
