Go Out in a Blaze of Glory (permalink)
Responding to our proof that all mirrors are magic mirrors, that reflections are real, and that we can literally drink the moon and the knowledge of the moon from a liquid mirror, George writes:

What a trip!!! In act one I couldn’t keep my eyes off of your glistening glasses but also not off of the marvellous multi-colored moon. Switching between the two gave me an instant high.

Act two brought a big smile on my face. The moon appearing, vibrating on the rhythm of your words, then disappearing again was a nice three act play all within itself.

Truly beautiful! Can’t wipe the smile off of my face.
