it is only fair to say that i am absurdly fascinated by things that sparkle, particularly silvery ones, or pearly white ones, or clear ones – like prisms, crystal bowls, chandeliers. i carry around a tiny bottle of silvery glitter which is really called “glimmer dust accenting powder” so i suppose i should be accenting myself with it. instead, i carry it around.
many years ago, i went to a poi dog pondering concert in chicago. during a song i forget the lead singer held out his hand, let fall a bit of glittering powder, which was so light it clouded up around his fingers before it drifted downwards and onto the stage. i remember that more than anything they played.
