Three crystal prisms hang in the window that looks out toward the Fairy Garden in my yard. When the sun ‘hits’ them the crystals fire rainbows all over my living room walls and ceilings. They are suspended by fishline which makes them look like they are just “there” because you do not see the fishline at all.
Why? you may ask do I do this?
As many may know, I am an author prone to inserting personal things into my novels that are “real” to me. In the literary field these are known as “genius/or bonus points. One of them is the concept of prisms in windows to provide rainbows. It was a fascination left over from childhood when everything seemed dark and sad. The rainbows “picked me up and encouraged me.” I first wrote them into “The Monday Night Flight Club” where the character of Presley is introduced. At 14, after being rescued, she is put into foster care with Momma Bets. Presley strings prisms on the window of her room with dental floss and is re-vitalized by the rainbows.
I special ordered some prisms to “share” on special occasions. I had, as an adult, had a prism hanging from my car mirror and others have now done the same. I decided to put the idea out there for those who might like to have these for their own room, office, car, nursery, whatever. We all need rainbows in our life to remind us of the beauty that can be ours. As in the Bible, it was also a promise to each of us: Genesis 9:13 I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth.
I hope you consider these as a “small token gift” you could share with a note of encouragement to someone you love or see in need. Just a unique and affordable sign of love and caring. There is a large selection online one may order as I did.
Remember to always keep magic and love in your life, and to share it with others.
