We All Carry That Which Completes Us.
Artifacts, Even As Small As A Lucky Penny. Perhaps We Do Not Realize It Until Someone Points That Out To Us. I Wrote An Earlier Piece About Them.
Allow Me To Re-Introduce You To My Dear Artifacts.
And The Newest Additions To My Collection.
Without These, I Am Not Complete.
I Am Not Perfection.
I Used To Carry Three Lucky Dice, One Got Lost At Work, So I Needed To Find A Replacement. Why Three, You Ask? I Believe As Any Book, Stories Are Always Told In Threes. Beginning, Middle, End.
The Only Difference Now, Is That One Die Is Kept In My Left Pocket, While The Other In My Right.
* Die #1 Represents Lady Luck. Sometimes You Are Dealt A Good Hand, Sometimes, You Are Not. Sometimes All You Can Do Is Roll The Die And Hope That Luck Is On Your Side.
* A Wooden Top Represents The Dream, The State of Consciousness In Which As Depicted In The Film Inception, One Is Either Dreaming Or Awake. What Is Real And What Is Not? Sometimes One Can Look At The Clock And Realize How Slow Time Is Going, Almost As If The Top Is Spinning Forever! Ha Ha Ha! But I Have Two Tops. One Is Wood, The Other Is Metal. The Wooden One Is A Gift From Father. Refer To The Post "Warm Wood & Cold Metal" For More.
* Lucky 38/200 Is A Poker Chip, Which Brings Us Back To Lady Luck! That Sly Woman, But Do Not Think For A Second I Dislike Her, No No No, I Praise Her, I Look Up To Her. Which Then, Sometimes, One Must Bow To Her, One Must Conquer For Her.
* The Bonds Of Love Is A Coin Representing The Chains That Bind. On One Side, A Man With Chains Cuffed To His Wrists, The Chain Falling To The Ground Below Him, Reaching Across To The Other Side, In Which There Is A Woman, Also With Chains On Her Wrists. Love Can Be The Best Thing, And Sometimes, It Can Be A Prison. Careful Who You Let In.
* The Hercules Key That Resembles A Sword, It Allows The Wearer To Become Three Times As Strong. I Believe That Deep Inside Us, Even At Our Weakest Moments, We Are All Capable Of Reaching Within And Pulling Out Our Greatest Strength. We Can Overcome The Unthinkable If We Put Our Minds To It.
* The Green Camouflage Knife Goes In The Left Back Pocket. Protection. Always Offering Protection. But More So, A Tool To Get Out Of A Sticky Situation. The Design, Almost Like Brass Knuckles. The Blade Is Hidden, But Also Seen Through The Holes. A Mask.
* The Constantine Lighter With Engravings In Latin "Fiat Justitia, Et Pereat Mundus" Meaning "Let Justice Be Done, Though The World Perish." Always Allow Good To Triumph Over Evil, Lest The World End. No Matter The Consequences.
There Has To Be A Balance, So For Every Artifact From The Left, One Belongs To The Right, Respectively.
* Die #2 Represents Lady Luck, Lest We Forget Her. Sometimes You Are Dealt A Good Hand, Sometimes, You Are Not. Sometimes All You Can Do Is Roll The Die And Hope That Luck Is On Your Side.
* A Metal Top Represents The State of Consciousness, The Dream In Which As Depicted In The Film Inception, One Is Either Awake Or Dreaming. What Is Fake and What Is Real? Sometimes One Can Look At The Clock And Realize How Fast Time Is Going, Almost As If The Top Has Stopped Spinning And You Did Not Realize It! Ha Ha Ha! But I Have Two Tops. One Is Metal, The Other Is Wood. The Metal One Is A Gift From Myself. Refer To The Post "Warm Wood & Cold Metal" For More.
* The Anti-Possession Coin With That Protection Symbol On One Side, And With The Devil's Trap On The Flip Side. For Not Only Is It Important To Protect Oneself From Evil, But Also To Learn To Banish It, By Trapping It, If Necessary.
* The Constants And Variables Coin In Which For Every Life, There Is Also An Alternate Reality. Do You Believe That Certain Choices Have Brought You To The Specific Point Where You Find Yourself In? Do You Believe If You Have Done Things Differently, Perhaps You Would Find Yourself In Another Place? On One Side Of The Coin: "Lives, Lived, Will Live." With The Face Of A Man. On The Other Side: "Dies, Died, Will Die." With The Face Of A Woman. Certain Things Are Predetermined, On The Other Hand, There Are Variables. Constants. Variables. Very Important Things.
* The Omega Key Is That Which Opens The Black Door, Then Indeed, It Shall Close It As Well. The Omega Key, As Taken From The Comic Book "Locke And Key" Is The First Key To Be Crafted And The Black Door Is A Gateway To Another World. But Power Like So Always Comes With A Price. This Is Important. And So The Omega Key Is So Powerful That It Must Be Hidden Forever.
* The Black Knife Goes In The Right Back Pocket, It Might Look Petty In Its Small Size, But It Packs A Punch, As Its Serrated Edge Can Come In Handy. Never Underestimate. Never Mock What Seems Weak, For It Is Never As It Seems.
* The Pocket Watch Is A Reminder Of Time. Timing Is Everything, And It Can Be Controlled Or Completely Out Of Control. Timing Can Change The Very Moment In Which A Plan Either Is Met Through Or It Fails. Timing Has Never Been On My Side. Timing Has Always Been Proven Difficult To Tame. Time Is A Difficult Creature.
Without Them, I Am Incomplete.
I Always Wear A Watch. I Have A Hard Time With Time Itself Already, As You Have Read Above, Now Imagine Being Unable To Tell Time.
Imagine Running Around On A Schedule, Without The Ability To Tell If You Are, Indeed, On Schedule.
I Used To Spoil Myself With Watches. I Had To Get Rid Of A Lot Of Them.
I Always Wear Rings. Even If It Is Just One. And Usually, The Only One Wore Is Dean's Ring Replica He Wears On The Right Ring Finger. I Prefer To Switch It Up From Time To Time, However, Both Hands Must Always Remain Balanced. I Usually Will Wear Three Rings In Each Hand. You Can See Those Three In The Picture Above, The Ones That Are Together--On The Left Middle and Right Middle Side.
I Always Wear Dean's Amulet. There Was A Time When A Cross Hung Around My Neck, That Time Is Gone. As My Faith Declined, So Did The Power I Felt The Cross Had. So Instead, I Have The Amulet--A Symbol Of Family.
Dean's Skulls Bracelet And Elephant Hair Bracelet. By Now I Hope You Understand Why Supernatural, or Dean, In General, Is Important. If Not, Feel Free To Refer To The Posts "Dean Winchester" And The Like.
Relationship Goals: Harley & Joker. The King And Queen. An Armband That Represents My Most Important Chapter. Refer To The Post "Temptress" And "The Queen" If You Need Further Explanation.
Supernatural "Bitch" Bracelet. To Go Off Dean's And Sam's "Bitch/Jerk" Running Joke Throughout The Series; Again, If You Do Not Realize The Importance Of That Show In My Life, Perhaps Read More On This Website. Another Important Chapter Wears The "Jerk" Bracelet. Enough Said.
Pura Vida Bracelet. Pura Vida Means Pure Life, A Philosophy Of Living Life To The Fullest And Cherishing The Small Treasures Life Brings. This Was A Gift From An Important Chapter In My Life. I Did Not Know Its Meaning Until I Researched, And I Always Wear It Because It Is A Strong Philosophy. Sometimes, One Blink And You Miss Those Moments. Other Times, You Let Those Moments Pass You By Because You Do Not Take Action.
The Importance With Bracelets As My Artifacts, They Are Always Balanced.
Left Arm. Right Arm.
