    Default The Shadows

    In the dream the sky shone bright as day... Zac saw things he did not see before... shadows come to mind.

    Also there are only several strange shadows in the book, there are many but most are at the same depth and I feel are from duplicating items on different pages, but some are just odd. He took those things and put them in the small boxes.

    Also he knew he would find them before noon tomorrow somehow is adding to my shadow problem. Long to short, at noon they are the shortest.

    Any thoughts?

    at high noon, aren't all shadows missing. there are none because the sun shines directly down at you and you cast no shadow.

    The sun is only directly overhead at noon at a particular latitude, and that changes throughout the year. So most likely a shadow is cast, but it in theory will be its shortest of the day at noon.

    Standing at the entrance of the grotto, Zac saw a shadow and a darker shadow within that shadow.

    I know there has been other references to the eclipse of the sun on this forum, and with your mention of the shadows, I thought this site interesting.
    The color of the moon reminds me of the colors in the picture of Rusful standing in the grotto. Lots of mentions about color, shadows, lights, etc. And its from NASA, one of MS's interests. Maybe dates are things to consider. This eclipse happened on October 14th. ATT was launched November 15th, 2004, if I remember correctly.

    Interesting first paragraph.

    "You can picture them: silent figures padding through the forest, the moon overhead, pale as a corpse, its cold light betraying the creatures of the wood."
