round and white




another stone from the windowsill
smooth, cool and mysterious
transformed in this scan to something
egg-like, translucent, almost alive

It glows like the moon.

yes, an irregular mysterious moon...

Joe and Fire Bird, yes indeed, it does look moon-like too!

I have one such right here, beside the keyboard.

Let me know when the dinosaur hatches :-)

Black Pete, isn't it wonderful to hold in one's palm and feel it's weight and history?

Susan, :-)

Hienot kuvat ja muodot! Täälläkin tuli ensiksi mieleen kuu :)

Taina, kiitos vain!

Lovely and full of seeming-meaning.

Makes me think of the Biblical "To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth."

Marly, thanks so much for the wonderful quote. I don't remember that one but it really resonates with these images, giving them that extra "seeming-meaning".

Well, they did look as though they held a secret!

Marly, I sometimes think that when one gives special attention to something, such as this stone, it does take on more meaning, or secrets, maybe even magic.
