She then turned around and snapped a picture of the fire.
I looked at her, a little strangely, I'm sure, and said "you took a picture of the fire?"
She grinned at me, huge as could be, and said, "Of course. I want you to always remember how beautiful it is."
I laughed. "Yeah, because there's a lady dancing in there, right?"
"Right." She said and handed me my camera.
I glanced down at the picture and just about dropped the camera in shock.
"Holy crap! There really is a lady in there!" It gave me chills. I'd heard of such things, of course, but had never caught them on film. Don't believe me? Here's the picture:
Do you see her? How cool is that? If she still remains hidden, look near the center, just to the left of the upstanding logs. Her knees are bent in profile, her arms upraised, her head a crown of flowers.
Still don't see her? Look below:
This is what I love the most about my imagination. I see things that I know aren't really there, but it makes it easy to believe the "What if's", and rather than be known as the schizophrenic down the street, I write it out. Don't be surprised if the fire fairy turns up somewhere down the line.
In other news, I'm starting a website. It should be available sometime this week. Well, it's available now, but only half done. I accidentally published it before it was finished. I know. My bad. As soon as I get it right, I'll post the address and you guys can come visit me there. I've got some fun ideas for contests and will give you the opportunity to help me with my writing. Really! I promise! So stay tuned. More details will follow soon!
