Accidental art and sessions
Last night I went to a local session. I took my melodeon (a Saltarelle Connemara) out of its case, put the latter down flat across the top of a cauldron thingy sitting in a false fireplace, and got myself a beer or whatever.
When I next looked in the direction of the case, I saw something like E.T. :- the rectangular top of the case was a face, the two opening-and-shutting clasps were glinting eyes, the handle hanging down was a nose, and the gap between the underside of the box and the rim of the cauldron’s near side was definitely a mouth; the cauldron itself was the top of a body. The incidental light and shadow effects abetted these illusions, which I naturally pointed out to others present.
This sort of thing I think happens quite often. Any other stories? No, I wasn’t on anything except caffeine and a bit of nicotine when I came to this session.
