Coding

A-hah! Everyone's asleep! *jumps on computer*

Note to self: Three people, one computer... not so much. And I'm only able to get on right now because there's a bus strike today and I'm waiting for a cab to work. So tempted to just call in "too annoyed to bother".

It's been a busy week {see here}, but I managed to creep in a bit of time for myself. Very early Friday morning, I crept out of the flat whilst everyone was still asleep, and hopped the bus to Roslin, to see the famous Roslynn Chapel. I got there early enough to mostly avoid crowds, and it was fantastic.

Roslynn is an odd place, in terms of Chapels. It's completely covered in carvings in the stonework, without a single space free, and I don't recall seeing that anywhere else. A lot of the "faces" within it have real personality, and there is, of course, much speculation on what it all means.

My theory: Someone with a lot of money and a desire to be ostentatious. It's not that I don't like the theory of a secret code or hidden meanings, I just think that people are inclined to read a lot into things, and it's not always necessary.

But, Rosslyn. It's beautiful, and I think my favourite part is the ceiling. It's carved up into stars, like a canopy of heaven, and I just was awed at the idea of people doing that. I love to look up at ceilings of churches and cathedrals, mostly because I love how the ceiling supports look, but this was so different.

I want to post up photos, but I don't know how much time I have left. Maybe later. Now that I'm not doing the Con stuff anymore, I have a bit more time on my hands, and this should help. Gah, I *miss* updating my blog.

Best part about making it out to Rosslyn: I now own a mug that says "The Davinci Cod". It has a fish. I am content.

As I was reading your post I was wondering why Rosslyn was familiar, and i figured it out just before you revealed the, um, code.
