PONDER YOUR SHADOW
"I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, And what can be the use of him is more than I can see. He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head; And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed."
From My Shadow by Robert Louis Stevenson
This is an excerpt from my favorite childhood poem. This lovely verse caused me to pay a lot of attention to my shadow. It has been years since I have taken the time to acknowledge my shadow and wonder if you pay any attention to yours. It is always with us in some form. Should such a close associate have it's own name? Do you enjoy the company of your shadow or do you fear your own shadow? Or do you give a flying fig about your shadow?
If you have time, read about this strange shadow person. Is this a case of "paranoia, persecution or alien control"?
This is called blog posting desperation:)
