I've seen how in the past people allow for some liberal interpretation of
theme, and hope they continue to do so. I plan to enter the current round
and because of the contrast between garbage and junkyard, I took the topic
in more of a "cast-off, unwanted, forgotten, neglected, etc." sense. Of
course, I had commited to my scene idea before the notes on the topic came
out. They seem to indicate traditional garbage, and now I wonder how I fit
with the theme.
