The one true prophecy?
No, I'm not setting up to be the next Oracle of Delphi, but there is one prophecy I can make for anyone. For me, for you, for anyone. And it is true. For all of us.
You know what it is, you really do. Although we try not to believe it.

May it be a long time coming, and fast when it arrives. But it will come.

And there's that mica again. Lovely stuff to use over text. I had to buy a retro toaster on TradeMe to get some. Stupidly expensive but I really wanted the mica.
And now I'm on a roll, using it with my assemblages. Protective over paper & text, but more organic-looking than glassy.
