The Bottle was talking

Or at least, it was ringing.



I don't post often about my dreams, I remember far too many of them. But maybe this one may have had some bearing on a recent project and my reactions to the project.



I was sitting in a classroom, with desks very much like the desks in my high school, chair and writing surface attached and a too small wire basket under the seat for books and supplies. A stern, youngish male teacher is at the front of the room, lecturing. A ringing is heard from my bag, under my desk, and the teacher is annoyed at being interrupted. I open my bag, and it was a bottle of Everclear that was ringing. I quickly open, and then close the bottle and the ringing stops. I apologize for the interruption, the teacher accepts the apology and class goes on.

I guess this particular project still has things to say to me.

The salt crystals have begun to form from the ash solution. They look like tiny, clear needles, if needle had sharp points at both ends.

Oo! Oo! That sounds so cool! I just gotta do spagyrics sometime in the near future. So what if I blow the kitchen up? (Don't tell my wife I said that?)

I really think you could do it in the kitchen. Just don't use anything as high as 190 proof for your menstruum. That way, you would use your oven and would "only" create lots of smoke in the kitchen (that what window fans are for, right?), without worrying about explosions (much).

It certainly has been cool and educational so far.
