It was unusual air that morning as the ravens landed on the nearly straight silver incline of the dry streetlight outside. They were lined up as black feathered messengers of God, observers of atrocities in Virginia, and felt like her birds. One lifted his head to shout from his open beak, his lungs expanding to support his terrible message with his black eyes flashing. Sparking.
The unusual air of atrocities seemed fresh, and that is the contradictory essence that the putrid air is very fresh. People - even neighbors - breathed in the early morning air as normal air every day in the United States, passing by on their focused way to work in offices.

expertise in metallurgy, she starts praying with her stolen
metals such as copper, gold, silver and platinum. Praying with
her tools available, such as her miner's lathe and drill handy,
her smooth stones, seashells, and clean desert sand. The important objects were all ready to go in her
toolkit, accompanied by her compass, pocket watch and geometry
tools. She tucked in one or two candles and a Bic lighter - to
light her prayer.
