The saying, "All that gltters is not gold" has always annoyed me. So what if it's not gold... it still glitters. Why should we impose our expectations on the nature of things? We should appreciate things (and people, for that matter) for their intrinsic natures! The glitter of a starlit night, a dew-laden web, a field of snow, the inside of a geode, New Year's confetti... OK, so it's not gold, but do we really want it to be?

Write a story, a poem or an essay on Glitter, or on my take on the saying above!


more icons for your pantry... and a sense of zen peace!
