Cubing - my on-the-spot made-up name for the activity of playing this game. I could have called it one of the other objects, but that would have given too much away.
What am I on about? Go read it.
Don't read on until you have read the article, unless you're not gonna bother.
My landscape has very fine sand, pretty flat but a dune off in the far distance ahead of me that starts just before the horizon. The storm is currently in that direction too, a grey-cloud (but fluffy grey, defined-shape-clouds like you used to draw when you were about 5yrs old) one with lightning forking down every now and then. No other clouds to be seen, the sun is quite bright and hot as you'd expect in a desert. No rain involved (so no, I don't know how my flowers got there but they did).
There are thousands and thousands of crocii (plural of crocus?) clumps with say 3 to 5 flower heads in each clump, evenly spaced (4ft apart?), not very high - maximum 30cm. The brown show-jumping-type horse is just standing there, not chewing or anything just the odd breeze blowing it's maine (sp?) hairs around a little. Long tail, it looks contented just standing there motionless.
The ladder appeared as a metal fold-out one, not one of the long ones; probably just picked the ladder we use at home for getting into the loft (but not a specific loft ladder style). I know exactly what I mean but not gonna describe it in any more detail.
As soon as the horse came into it, for some very strange reason the ladder moved to be standing (still vertical, to climb upwards on) onto the horses back (which is wearing a brown leather saddle, by the way).
The cube... Onto the cube.
It's hovering a couple of foot over the ground in mid-air, seemingly unsupported by anything. Just in front of me, the horse is behind it (with that ladder resting on the saddle) Sides about 3ft long; sides of metal plate (not so thick that they don't bend a little if you were to stand on it). It's hollow, and you can see this because the sides aren't completely square, but rounded at the edges so there's a gap at the corners you can see space inside. It's too dark to see all of the inside but if you were to hold it at weird angles you'd see light coming through from the other sides. The sides are painted in smooth pastel-orange.
There. Enough description? I could go into a little more detail from my mind, but that'll do... Hope you've already come up with yours (or not bothering), cos it's a little too late to go do it now... You're intrigued aren't you. Blame this one on my mate Jon's blog...
