"The weather-cock on the church spire, though made of iron, would soon be broken by the storm-wind if it ... did not understand the noble art of turning to every wind."
~ Heinrich Heine
"A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man. Kites rise against, not with the wind"
~ John Neal
What IS IT??
I almost bet that you have at the very least seen one of these... Some of you may have even touched one... I have! I love them. I have chosen the quotes on wind today because one of my favorite things is to see this blowing in the wind. If you know what this is or even if you just want to offer a guess.. Please leave a comment. Tomorrow I will tell you the answer with a comment of my own. It's fun to guess and you might get it right.. I will even give you a few hints..
1:) I have been around since the beginning of time.
2:) I come in a great range of different colors and sizes.
3:) I am used in the making of fabric and jewelry.
4:) I am also used in the drying of malt and hops over a furnace during the brewing of beer.
5:)Itzhak Perlman would be nowhere without me; as would Yo-Yo Ma.
6:) You will find me in both the country and city settings.
I'm sure that someone will take just one look and know what this is. I have been told that this is also quiet tasty but I have never eaten it.. I think it would be on my personal list of Non-food items. I am sure that someone out there will know what this is with just one look. You can never tell though... I hope everyone enjoys trying to figure out what this photo is.. Please comment with your own guess. I enjoy the guesses.. I love the comments. I will be looking at the world with a whole different "eye" from now on; as I attempt to find things to post on Tuesday Blogs. Look closely at the world around you.. Enjoy the wonderful world that God created for us to enjoy! So many things and such a great circle of life. Each thing however tiny holding a special place with uses unique to that one thing... It makes me feel very small when I think of the grandness of this world! Have a great day!
Up Date~ It is indeed the mane of a horse. A couple of you got it right.. thanks to all who visited! I decided to add the new Photo since a horses mane looks like so many other things! Have a wonderful day!
