The Devil’s Box

she’s a violin of love
whose every string
produce a music
so intense that my
soul is set on fire

@shivadelic__

It was once thought to be sinful to play the violin, thus it was called “the devil’s box”. It can be hauntingly beautiful, with it’s dark timbre and I’ve chosen a particularly haunting piece of music for this picture; Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Op. 11 performed by the Vienna Philharmonic, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. Enjoy.

Witchery

Those who do not believe in magic will never find it.

Roald Dahl

While I’m on the subject of witchcraft, I remember a story about one of my ancestors who was accused of practising witchcraft. This was way back in time, we’re talking the 17th century witch trials. My forefather was accused of performing evil sorcery; he was blamed to have, among other things, caused a storm which in turn had made a fishing boat capsize and the crew drowned. He was found guilty of witchery and then burned on the stake. Gruesome stuff.

I’m practising my witchery safely in Second Life and only for Halloween. With the best help from KOPFKINO, Bricolage, Hoorenbeek and BONDI, I really look the part!

Bricolage is participating at Hallow Manor with an extensive Fortune Tellers Set, very detailed and beautifully textured, this set is a must for your reading parlour! Tarot Reader Chair, Fortune Seeker Chair, Table, Tarot Cards, Candles and much more. Bricolage also offers a console table with skull decor as a hunt gift, go join the hunt!
