Glory & Deception Part 1

There is an alcove leading into a building, and in the alcove are very ornate works of trim casing the tall double doors which are open and inviting toward larger rooms inside. Just to the left of the doors is a small hutch on which sits some bread and cakes with butter, silverware, jams and preserves and some goblets beside the decanter of grape juice.

I watched you walk over to the table and pick up a piece of bread, and one of the doors closed tight with a slam. You looked up and saw its mate was still open.

You put the bread back down and reached for the decanter, and the other door began to swing closed so you pulled your hand back.

Without taking any of the food, you rushed into the next room, not risking the doors closing completely. In this room was more ornate wood work, with rich red velvet curtains and burnt amber reddish wall coverings. There were tables all around the room with beautiful gold and silver goblets, plates and other dish ware, as well as knick knacks that had been finely crafted. On some of the tables around the outside walls you could also see gold and silver coins stacked beside the dishes, as well as rings, necklaces and other fine jewellery.

You stood in the middle of the room and from there you could see through the next doorway into an even larger room that appeared to shine with white and grey marble. This time you watched the door acutely as you slowly took one step toward the treasures, and noticed the slightest move of the door on its hinges. Changing direction you again turned and walked quickly through that door as well.

Now in the marble room you looked around and every wall had a picture of yourself hanging in a large frame that showed you in some type of victorious conquest… in one you were painted on the top of a mountain, another showed you working in a laboratory with a look of triumph on your face and a glowing beaker in your hand. You strolled toward each one and began to thoroughly enjoy all your works. Others showed you with various celebrities enjoying all types of tourist attractions, or sporting shows. The more you walked the more pictures appeared.

It dawned on you that there didn’t appear to be any exits from this room and you turned toward the middle of the large hall to see a small wooden armoire type of box in the middle. Of course the doors were all tightly closed. As you walked toward it a brighter and brighter light shone in front of it until you were no longer able to look at it for fear of blindness.

Changing Seasons

Chair 1
Chair by the Lake with Prophetic Art

I saw you today like a turtle hanging by his mouth on a branch of a tree.  Like all turtles hanging by their mouths in trees, you know they didn’t get there by their own doing, but there it was, hanging high up on a tree branch.  As I watched, the turtle’s shell changed colours and blended perfectly with the leaves of the tree… which were fairly ornate looking with a white fringe around a blue leaf.

Then everything changed.  I saw an orange box rise up out of a pile of beach sand.  The lid opened and inside was a mirror.  When I looked into the mirror, I saw the sand that was under the box… and then the box became like sand and dissolved back into  pile.

The scene changed once more and now the landscape was covered in snow.  There was a large icicle hanging from the edge of a roof.  It was beautiful with lots of shimmering light coming through it that gave it a bluish hue.  I saw a snowflake flutter down from the clear blue sky and land very gently against the side of the large icicle.  Instantly the ice exploded into a million tiny shards of ice, revealing inside was a huge and intensely valuable cut sapphire gem.

The last thing I saw was a man with a necklace on that carried a pendant made of silver, in the shape of a turtle. It was mounted on the chain by its mouth so the body of the turtle hung below the necklace. The body of the turtle was made of almost clear blue sapphire but inside was cut an hourglass with orange sand inside.
