Michael Faraday himself gave me this cage. Yup. This is Faraday's Cage. And I am it's keeper. A long time has passed since 1836, and I had had many adventures with this cage. On one occassion, I planted a strange seed inside it. The dirt fell away, and the plant remained. Then, one day, it caught on fire. Strangely, I felt great the entire day, despite (or because of) having inhaled the smoke.

Later, I put a regular lily seed in it. Of course, it did not respond normally. It sprouted wire and raffia, and blossomed (with just a bit of my help) origami flowers. To top it off, a butterfly with note markings on it's wings flew over, landed artfully on the central flower, and ever since, has taken permanent residence on it. If you can hear the music while he is flapping his wings, get plenty of rest. Yeah.

If you want to take proper care of the lily, water with lots of love and let it get plenty of attention. Hanging it from the ceiling would work well, anywhere indoors or on the covered deck. You might even trick some hummingbirds with it.

This work and idea (three-petaled flowers composition) is mine, and protected by a Creative Commons license. I designed and folded the flowers. The butterfly is designed by Rikki Donachie, folded by me with permission.

Now, put away that light, mon. You're harshing me mellow.
