    I know it’s kind of wrong but I cannot help thinking how do these things sound like, maybe like a million dragons.

    Tabitha, this is the total opposite of cool. :)

    It sounds like burning, and it wants it’s precious.

    It’s big, and it’s round.
    And it’s hot.
    Very hot.
    Very freakin’ hot.
    It burns, and it bubbles, and it will continue to do so.

    sigh.

    do you suppose that if we all pay attention and work really, really hard we might be able to make another one when this one breaks or wears out?

  18. mondegreen thoughts says:

    Wow! The beauty is hypnotic and also somehow terrifying, but that’s not the right word. When I think of “god” this don’t see a sheep herder in sandals, I see this kinda thing…because i’m a heathen.

    I hate to say it, but this also makes me wish I had really, really good weed. there now the world also knows I am a secret hippy.

    God Damn It!
