Superstition" at The Kollage Kit blog.==================================================================================="It is said that when you break a mirror, your cosmic penance is to endure seven years of bad luck, unless you can find a way to counteract the negative effects. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to prevent all that karmically bad juju after you break a mirror, although you might have to get a little dirty or soggy. It's still preferable to spending the rest of your seven year sentence wondering why your car keys keep breaking off in the ignition or why you keep missing the bus. The origin of the "break a mirror, face seven years of bad luck" superstition can be traced back to the Romans, who were the first to create glass mirrors. Just because your culture invents something totally useful like a mirror doesn't mean you can't still have some irrational beliefs about its use. The Romans, along with the Greek, Chinese, African and Indian cultures, believed that a mirror had the power to confiscate part of the user's soul. If the user's reflected image became distorted in any way, this could mean a corruption of his or her soul."

Roger Stevens excellent new CD that I did the cover art for - well, actually he just went through all my collages on Facebook and chose one that fitted the title track. You can find it at his Reverbnation site. Roger has recently discovered his folk roots and plays regularly at Hove Folk Club if ever you are down that way. For the origins of the Moths In The Lumber Room inspiration go HERE.
