Mystery resolved


I owed you an explanation for my strange green picture a couple of posts below. Perhaps you remember I have some kind of crystal in my window that reflects the light into the room. Sometimes it has some crazy effects. The other day the light was directed towards this letter opener that is a giraffe and it projected a colourful shadow into the wall. It reminded me of Lion King because all you could see was the silhouette of the giraffe. That's why it was called "the circle of life". It was hard to guess, wasn't it?

Ahhh!..it all seems so obvious!!...it's quite ( he says turning serious for a moment) interesting how it's the shadows and the unknown that cause us the anxieties. there's a great little poem by Spike Milligan which goes...

Ghosties and ghoulies,
and long legged beasties,
things that go bump in the night,
It's the hole in each ear,
that lets in the fear,
that, and the abscence of light.

I'd love to have a crystal like that. I have a fews quartz crystals, I never noticed them filtering light like that at all.
*envy* :)

You could hang a tie on the letter opener.

It could become a weekly event here on your blog.

Yeah, I like fb's idea! The weekly Crazy Crystal post. Like the Rorschach inkblot test! LOL! You might learn more about your readers than you bargained for! :-D

Kim: Dak (?) is this danke is danish? I had a blank just now.

Niall: That's very nice indeed! But let's not forget that wherever there is light, there is shadow ;)

Violet: I don't think mine's even quartz. My aunt bought it in a decoration shop and gave it to me.

Dr.John: I suppose I could if it was a mini-mini-micro tie :)

FB: lol I'm afraid the crystal events aren't very frequent. Or I'd have to be really creative to make interesting shadows.

Missalister: lol You're right! That Roschach test is a freaky thing. But I have a manual to decipher it ;)

Miss Iyer: oh no, that is not allowed ;)

Crafty: thanks :)

The giraffe makes a lovely letter opener.
