One summer afternoon, we decided to put unwanted items in storage. We took a trip to Lowes Hardware Store, picked up some heavy duty moving boxes and headed for our local Target for packing supplies. When we got home, we started to assign a number of books, clothes etc. to their designated stations. As we sealed each box with tape, I noticed the elongated bubbles that formed beige rivers on the surface. Imagining this was an aerial view of a mysterious landscape, I carefully composed my shot. Initially, I had two different versions of this photograph. However, I was more pleased with the strength of the lines and texture of the back and white one.

We’re on the second weekend of our Christmas Countdown! This object was a part of a Christmas gift that my cousin and his wife gave my Mother five years ago. I remember when I first saw the surface of the gift that it reminded me of an icey cave.

Can you guess what this object is?

What does it remind you of?

What time of year is it? It’s time for the Christmas countdown folks. Each Friday of December, I’ll be sharing yet another object with you! Some objects will be used to create familiar Christmas favorites. Other objects specific to Christmas (this does not exclude Christmas gifts) will transform into things other than what they are! So join in the fun! Feel free to guess that object and gain some much needed cheer for the season!

Here’s the first object! Can anyone guess what the original object was?

A dark road met a ray of light

They held hands for a moment

against the glowing horizon

Shadows sought to guide the way

Where fear once lived

a greater curiosity stood

Meeting pale times

too young to live in memory

Winding metallic lines meet boldly.

Waves catch mid days light,

Holding their form,

Anticipating the curious.

Eyes still standing,

Encase the surrogate womb,

Sealing deep wells,

Impressing your mind.

Bold eyes search for signs of life

Combing the waters glowing canopy

Brazen and banded

They seek hidden prey

Killing the meek amongst the reef

This world above meets the aquatic below

As the seaweed grows

Young loners meet their pale day

Destined to sleep while killers play

Believe it or not, this is actually a picture of a piece of home decor that I had received as a Christmas gift two years ago. Just when I think I can’t get any more photos from this object, a fresh idea emerges.

One arrow faces north, the other south.

The sudden urge to yield to the hearts desires are first monitored, then fastidiously controlled.

A desperate twin and its polar opposite are brought together with a tight hinge.

There is no hint of neutrality or a reluctant peace treaty, only a trusty handle to ensure cooperation.

My mother bought two of these objects to help us clean and organize the house. One unusually dull afternoon, I turned to look at the hearth. The object was leaning clumsily to one side. At first, I thought that I was going to get a work break with this newly discovered find, a one shot photo. However, I had to take several shots before I was satisfied with the results. Finally, I chose this photo for the unveiling. Its design reminded me of many strained relationships (they may be work relationships or personal relationships) that occur because the people involved have opposing views on how things should be done. The top arrows represent one side the bottom arrows the other. The arrow designs on both the top and the bottom are both black and white in order to represent the concept that contained within extreme forms of thought, there are still ideas which contradict one another, therefore making the arguments of each side less valid. Neither side would give except that ultimately they are working towards the same goal. This cause, (represented by the hinge), binds them together; they are forced to work out their differences. This is achieved with the handle. In this design, it is placed strategically in the middle like a referee. The handle ( person or organization representing the handle) carries the two opposing sides, helping them to work out their differences until they have their next inevitable disagreement. Without this handle, their would be no achievement or progress.
