Me And My Shadow

A bit of a departure today. Last week I started participating on the Theme Thursday website. Each Sunday the Theme Thursday folks post a weekly theme and ask idea-starved bloggers - such as myself - to participate. For example, last week the theme was "festivals" and I decided to do a piece on the 40th anniversary of Woodstock over on my music blog dufusdownbeat.

This week, the theme is "shadow". There are various ways to go on this theme but when I first saw it I immediately thought of something I'd posted some time ago, back when nonamedufus was more of a picture and video blog. It's from an appearance on the David Letterman show of Australian hand shadow specialist and "Unusualist" Raymond Crowe. I think you'll be as amazed as I was when you watch this.

If you're interested in being further amazed, visit Raymond Crowe's website. And be sure to visit Theme Thursday and click on the links to see how my blogging buddies there have dealt with this week's theme...

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
