  1. Hmmm…interesting. Looks like a couple of (linen?) hangings hanging on a line outside, with the sun shining through. The first one appears to have some kind of writing. Runic? Kanji?

  2. Finally! I could not get the page to fully refresh until after I added my comment, so I couldn’t see the existing guesses.
    Now, just waiting to see Ubertramp’s interpretation 😉

  3. Sorry to disappoint, Terry. I was in the ER sunday night with food poisoning and I’m still recovering. I can’t focus on anything at all for more than 30 seconds. If I write something now, it might be something weird. 🙂

  4. Oh no Ubertramp – best wishes for a speedy recovery. What a miserable thing to have happen.

    They are Tibetan Prayer Flags – first guess wins – well done Will.

    I don’t try to stump you all – it’s not possible! I get a big kick out of what you all do with the image.

    See ya next week.

  5. Sorry, gang. This is the best I could do. 🙂

    Due to my recent illness, I haven’t been able to do the requisite research to place Dawn’s image this week. However, I believe my non-voluntary fasting has had some illusory benefits. Although, on a whole, food poisoning pretty much sucks, I believe I transiently enter a higher state of being. And in between waves of infirmity and nausea, I have the occasional glimpse of patterns.

    About a month ago, I mentioned the Nassaniatic monks of Aquilon. The Nassaniatics are, as I stated then, part mineral and part plant, and their monks are known for their stamina for prolonged meditation. Seeing this image, combined with the knowledge that Dawn is a member of the TI and is able to visit other intelligent lifeforms across the universe, started a web in my mind.

    Here’s my unconfirmed theory. Yes, these are Tibetan prayer flags. But they were a gift of the last Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso, to the Nassaniatic monks, roughly 100 years ago. It was a very secretive affair, as I recall, and the current Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, isn’t really sure he believes the stories. But it is part of the reason he’s always smiling. Because if the story is true, there are people “out there” who follow a similar path and they have prevailed, despite all the odds.

    Now back to bed and pray for sleep.

  6. That was an unintentional double-post; I thought I hadn’t managed to post that comment, but S&R apparently wasn’t refreshing for anyone (it must’ve been down in sympathy for you, Mike–I can call you Mike, right?). I was not meaning to imply that my brain was hurting any more than it was originally. 🙂
