Day 9 of 360 Days of Symbols. Today’s symbol? Lake.
Like all mirrors, lakes are thresholds to other worlds. Wait for the water to be still, for the reflection to be undiluted by ripples. A clear, perfect reflection, nothing changes, everything the same. An echo of the world you are in, wait for that moment, and then stare, just stare.
It’s almost like a magic eye picture isn’t it?
At first you can’t believe what you’re seeing. You stare, stare, stare and then everything changes in the reflection. Slowly, one item at a time. A tree becomes a tower. The sun becomes three suns, or nineteen, or none. The clouds change color, odd colors, and the sky is all wrong. Islands appear, then disappear.
Once the changes are complete a sunflash will signal. Cross then, cross quick. If you wait until too long you may become trapped between worlds, in a state of both being and unbeing. A ghost caught in a sandwich between realities.
