hmmmmm.... when Rocks have thoughts...
things get strange....
...oh... but we're getting aHEAD of ourselves...
“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere
and don't notice it.”
― Alice Walker, The Color Purple
the occasional Purple Parliament...
Yes, although Owls are generally solitary creatures,
(not to mention- not usually PURPLE)
a group of Owls is known as a “Parliament”
as they have traditionally been considered to be of a wise disposition.
Words of wisdom from the current Purple Parliament:
"Be the Strange you wish to see in the World."
What, out of the mass of material offered to it,
shall Consciousness seize upon-
with what aspects of the Universe shall it "unite"?
-Practical Mysticism by Evelyn Underhill
Selecting the most perfect of the pygmies...
the Dollmaker now has a
"Parliament" of Points!
Free-standing Quartz Crystal Constructions
for Fairy Gardens and Altars
"It is my job to make sure the crystals point upward...
can't have them lying about on their sides now can we?
They are so regal when they are upright...
even the small ones..."
so... Quartz Crystals... what's the story, morning glory?
The Dollmaker found herself staggering through the blinding Snowstorm
through contestable mountain ranges of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo
in her attempt to comprehend:
What do Crystals really DO?
Eventually, she turned to Science to try to make sense of it all...
These are some of her findings:
Quartz is actually made from
two of the most popular Elements on the planet: Silicon and Oxygen
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) (Quartz) is well known to geologists,
as it is ridiculously abundant...
evidently the most abundant compound found in the Earth's crust!
In fact, the Earth contains so much Silicon
that it has been jokingly compared to an enormous flying crystal ball.
It also happens that Sponges have been discovered which are 100% alive and 100% Silicon,
so, we mustn't get too smug about there only being carbon-based life forms on this planet..
but the Dollmaker digresses
right, so anyway...
Quartz Crystals typically grow slowly, at very high temperatures
Yes, Crystals are solids which have materialized
from super-saturated liquids loaded with dissolved minerals.....
(think of how orange juice is a liquid, but solids (the pulp) settle out of it when it's left for some time)
Water saturated with dissolved minerals seeps through crevasses in the rock...
(these crevasses eventually become crystal encrusted veins)
The Mineral-rich water pools up in caverns (tiny or large) deep inside the earth
and there the Crystals gradually and quite literally "appear".
Usually, they grow along the walls of these veins and caves-
clusters of single points growing outward, unobstructed, into air pockets.
Happily, however, Sometimes in the "materialization process"
tiny suspended fragments of old crystal or matrix floating about in the soft mud
will attract the dissolved Silicon dioxide searching for a host to grow upon
and these unattached specimens become
the highly valued "double-terminated" crystals with a point at each end.
Crystals may indeed be Subjectively or Harmonically aligned- but what we know for sure is that
Clear Quartz Crystals are incredibly STABLE
sporting some of the strongest, most balanced, precise and pure frequencies in the
The quintessential physical quality of Quartz is it's
the ability to maintain a specific vibration blissfully, precisely, invariably, eternally unsullied, forever.
In an unpredictable world Quartz is the Rock
truly embodying the highest ideals of Science and Technology...
Quartz Crystals are additionally unique in that they possess a quality known as
the Piezo-electric effect.
What the devil does that mean?
convert energy of one kind
into energy of another kind
(electrical to mechanical
or mechanical to electrical).
How a Quartz Crystal works in a clock:
Well, you know Scientists...
and how they just can't resist passing a current through whatever's lying around...
It was discovered that when
a voltage (electrical energy) is applied
to a thin Quartz Crystal wafer
the crystal will actually bend
and vibrate back and forth,
or "oscillate"... (mechanical energy)
not in a random manner, but in a steady, reliable and predictable manner.
This is how a Quartz clock or watch, once set in motion, continues it's precision ticking.
The Quartz wafer connected to a power source (say a battery) will vibrate with uncanny reliability...
night or day, cold or hot, upside down or right side up...
under varying load conditions, indefinitely... or until the battery dies.
So, one could conclude that Quartz Crystals can be tremendously capable of
sticking with the Program, so to speak.
Now we are told
that Crystals can be one of the most powerful tools available to us
in the physical dimension...
but the key to maximum utilization is to learn how to consciously implement the tool...
hmmm... what can be done with a tool that changes energy from one form to another...
generates a minute electrical pulse when touched...
is open to being programmed
and, once programmed, maintains a steady, reliable pattern
capable of Order in the midst of Chaos...
Consider the Vibrational fabric of Reality...
When patterns of Energy are disrupted, Health can be compromised
resulting in a state of disease or illness.
Some say that Resistant, discordant energy patterning is responsible
for every negative symptom we experience, from headache to cancer.
Science uses Quartz Crystals to help stabilize discordant interference...
Perhaps, with Intention, we could too.
Refer to this video for a more detailed (and fun) explanation:
The similitude here
is just too good to ignore...
Arms will go Down.... Arms will go Up!
Heads will Swivel, as well.
Oh, the Possibilities...
(see all of the above at the Texas Renaissance festival in the Fall)
it certainly is
at the Smithville Public Library
for the Little Bookworms!
Every Wednesday! It's Story Time for Kids!
And a Summer Arts and Crafts Program! Yay!
AND... The Dollmaker is having a blast in the fat middle of it all!
Volunteering at the Smithville Public Library!
Hope all you Fathers out there had a Great Father's Day!!!
And as the Dollmaker can attest...
certain Librarians really know how to have
with old friend Cindy Meredith, at Chickamaw Blueberry Farms in McDade, TX
Blueberries are ripe in Texas from 3-5 weeks in early June.
About the Doll Faces
The Dollmaker has always used fabric for the faces. Single-weight knits, mostly.
Never Stockings or Pantyhose! Heaven forbid!
She has always wanted the Dolls to be Sturdily Built
that they might become heirlooms- handed down through generations...
So, One day, while visiting Felting-Farmer-Lady Lee at the Felting-Farm...
Lee became excited and showed the Dollmaker an older Wee Peeple Doll
which she recently came to acquire
and the Dollmaker saw that one of her own life-long dreams was being realized..
How grateful she is to have lived long enough to see that
the Dolls are indeed being handed down through generations. It's happening.
(interestingly...Lee inherited the same doll which she herself lovingly gave to her Dad- back in 1998)
"Don't just make up your mind, make up your Heart."
The Gardens Loved all the rain...
Circling back to Certain Stones again....
(Stones which contain random letters of the alpha-bet caused by Crystalline streaks in the matrix)
Remember the "K" Stone from last month...
the first letter of the Dollmaker's name...
Well, this month the Dollmaker found
the second letter
in her name...
Coincidence? The Dollmaker thinks NOT!
the "A" Stone
If the Dollmaker finds the "N" Stone next month, now THAT will be Woo-Woo!
