This sits on my desk, right above where I type with my laptop. What is it? Just art. Art for art's sake, beauty for beauty's sake. The first thing of that sort that I ever treated myself to. I had years of only buying pretty things for Elayna... for myself, just functional things.
But this... I was at one of those street fairs, and I always admire the glasswork at those places, and I had money for my uncle, money he pressed into my hand with the entreaty to spend it on something nice for myself.
And so I did. And it makes me happy.
Beside it, a stack of Mr. Men/Little Miss books; under it, my hair shoggoth and a stone that says "CREATE". The paper you can barely see above it is a picture of Shiva dancing. :)
