Goodness...yesterday seemed to have gotten away from me...so today I blog twice. It was a traveling kind of day...Dance lessons, run to Wisconsin, search for a lamp...couple of furniture stores and a Hobby Lobby and Dinner and then finally home. Exhaustion could be the word. But todays word spoke to me while I was enjoying dinner. The word for the day is CRYSTAL.
Crystal has a couple of meanings...one could be that I own cystal glasses. We don't ever say "put out the glasses on the table" for a fine dinner. We say "set out the CRYSTAL".
We say that something is CRYSTAL clear to us. Pretty indicative that there is a clear understand of something...although when I look at a crystal is seems so much more than clear...it shimmers, glimmers and shines. It can be refractive. It is often times cut and angled, as well as chiseled. Multi-faceted as well. Perhaps we should think of the Swarowski cyrstal. Now that's Sparke! Although if someone defined you as "CRYSTAL clear" It wouldn't really be defining you as a spakling person, now would it?
Did you ever hear a crystal bowl being played? The sound is amazing. It is really something everyone should make a conscious effort to try to hear. We know that something is fake or crystal just by the ping of a finger on a glass. Just imagine the music encased in a bowl.
Well it is CRYSTAL clear to me this morning that not everything is always as it seems.
Quote for the day:
"In the hour of adversity be not without hope For crystal rain falls from black clouds."
