This is not the picture I thought I was going to take. I thought I was going to place my camera outside, set the timer, and then quickly run inside to pose through the window. That seemed a lot more fun before I looked at the thermostat.
Inside, looking out the window, the blue sky and bright sun juxtaposed against the snow. My weather app taunted me . . . minus one degree! A flash struck my eye; refracting sun through a crystal prism hanging from my window latch. Curious, I held it in front of my camera lens and clicked. I was left with this eerie image, reminiscent of the many facets of the self.
One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.
