The Golden Key
In the winter time, when deep snow lay on the ground, a poor boy was forced to go out on a sledge to fetch wood. When he had gathered it together, and packed it, he wished, as he was so frozen with cold, not to go home at once, but to light a fire and warm himself a little. So he scraped away the snow, and as he was thus clearing the ground, he found a tiny, gold key. Hereupon he thought that where the key was, the lock must be also, and dug in the ground and found an iron chest. "If the key does but fit it!" thought he; "no doubt there are precious things in that little box." He searched, but no keyhole was there. At last he discovered one, but so small that it was hardly visible. He tried it, and the key fitted it exactly. Then he turned it once round, and now we must wait until he has quite unlocked it and opened the lid, and then we shall learn what wonderful things were lying in that box.

...a good mystery sandwhich.

...to light the fire?
Why did he turn the box round once after the key fitted?
Jeeze, those Bros. Grimm are deep!  



19 Jan 2005 @ 15:42 by vaxen : It was...
the key, j, that he turned round once not the whole box! ;) And he didn't, yet, light the fire...he just cleared away the snow, and found the iron (Isarn-the Runa or Mystery is also called Ice Iron, also known as the Rainbow Bridge, as well as ones central, core, self...the Isa or I) box...so after he finds out what is 'inside' the box, presumably, he will light the fire. But what if he has no matches? Will he make a fire by rubbing two sticks together or will he find a blue light inside the Isarn box? Lots of possibilities here for the exercise of that most wonderous of gifts...the ratiocinative intelligence, your image-gin(a)-ion.

In the Gin Nunga Gap is found the Be Gin Nunga of all...be-gin-nings. When is a Nunga an Ing? What is be? Be.

an interesting guided visualization. Imagine yourself as the boy, cold, walking thru the snow, etc. and when you open the box, what do you see inside?
Rainbows of imagination for all!!! Look out now, heeeeeeeere they Coooooooome...Zoom Zip Sploosh!

20 Jan 2005 @ 07:21 by hgoodgame : Maybe it's a magic formula -
It's PEF PUF POF PIF PAF, gotta get the order right or it won't work. ;)
Calvin and Hobbes are casting an runic enchantment designed to get people to wake up and smell the snowballs.
