Tuesday 6 March 2012: Dragon Smoke.
I'm quite keen on incense. This particular type of cone is actually called a Räucherkerzchen. I like to light one on a Saturday to fill the home with a wonderful scent while we go about our business of having a morning coffee and reading the news. I always used to tell the children that it was actually dragon smoke, from a real ancient fire-breathing dragon and it has been trapped inside this tiny cone until I have decided to release it. They would stare at it with awe and amazement. However the magic of that story is wearing off as the children grow.
What I love about this picture is that maybe I can rein them back in one more time by showing them this image where in the top right of the picture, you can see the head of the dragon just showing himself as he is released from his spell, after having spent millions of years trapped in the dragon smoke cone ;O)
