I Shot this image (unmodified except for cropping) using my computer’s mouse with a glowing blue scroll-stick, a 2″ tall toy soldier and a handkerchief.

Story: I left my computer on overnight to download a CD worth of data (Ubuntu 10.10 for my mom’s new laptop). My mouse's scroll-stick glows bright blue, I laid my handkerchief over it in order to sleep better, but woke up early staring at this eerie “glowing blue cloud” & decided to make this using a 2 inch tall toy soldier my daughter found awhile back. I’ve been feeling like this soldier – standing guard over everything important to him while possibly about to be sucked into the great vortex of the unknown. If so, resist or go boldly for adventure w/my head up?
