above the mist by landobaldur above the mist by landobaldur
"daddy, sometimes when i try to sleep, i hear noises coming from down the mist, what is down there?"
"dont worry, sweety, whats down in the mist, stays in the mist. it has always been like that."
"why dont we go and find out?"
"the ancients tell its a mutual agreement. going down there would mean breaking our side of the contract."
"has anyone been down there?"
"the last person exploring the mist died thousands of years ago, one of the first settlers who made the agreement."
"what did he see there?"
"it was so long ago, only legends remain and probably none of them are true. as long as you stay on the web, you are safe. now try to sleep and dont think about it."

Very cool. Reminds me of a short story I read where humanity was expanding towards new planets and found a planet inhabited by huge intelligent friendly curious spiders. The human crew of the exploration spaceship weren’t able to overcome their arachnophobia, and it was determined that most other humans would never be able to stop cringing, either. So they ended up not settling the planet. 

I’m imagining your painting to be a different ending to that story - humans settling but moving high up and never telling their offspring about the intelligent creatures they’re sharing the planet with. :D

pfff spiders are so cute, especially jumping spiders ^^ www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkZ_wc…

the story here is more like: if you dont try to control everything and just live your life while respecting others, you be ok ^^

sleep is overrated. just put out some drinks and cookies for the ghosts, when fed and drunk they are quite fun to be around ^^

Hmmm, I set up some amulets in the room and had my cat as a ward and guard, then I fell asleep. I'll try to give 'em some rum next time. ;)

yeah dont wonder why your cat sleeps all day if she has been playing all night with the ghosts !

Yeah she's a little devil. :) Also now it makes sense why my other cat is scared of any shadows and any movements that he can notice.
PS: I've been thinking of joining/creating an artistic circle. Where bunch of artists would share knowledge, talk (maybe even become friends) and try to improve together. Would you be interested in joining perhaps?

   ...but now I'm confused... "not everything is about [the only place that actually exists]"... I'm not sure how to parse that sentence, as it seems to be a logical contradiction. ;p

A cube? Man... are you behind the times or what? :no: Earth is a non-manifold 5-dimensional hyper-parabolic pentagonal brane with variable (but always n+/-1) topology and a nasty habit of developing trans-dimensional flaws anyplace pentagons and pentagrams intersect with stylized goat faces... or wherever else it feels like it. :nod: 

Just ask Judge Crater or Amelia Earhart or any of the millions of folks who turned the wrong way down a one-way cosmic string... ;p
