I helped Cory make his Hallowe'en costume: he is going as the Black Mage from the video game Final Fantasy 1. Above, he is showing how the Mage casts spells. For some reason, the Black Mage wears a blue cloak and has large yellow hands. Cory still needs to work on the hat, making it high and pointy. Also, the Mage has no face, rather a black void between the hat and cowl, with large yellow eyes. We'll just have to see what he comes up with to create that!
Tonight we sewed the cloak - we used fleece, so it is very warm and cozy, and we were both very pleased with the way it came out. And I only broke 2 needles in the sewing machine!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
