Magnified house dust: "The little circles with crosses are starch grains. The flat colored particle just right and above center is from cosmetics. Most of the white fibers are paper fibers. The flat colorless particles are primarily human skin flakes. There is one glass fiber halfway to the left edge from center."
Dust is sacred, right?
As in "Leave it lay where Jesus flang it!" ~Anne Lamott
As in, for a snowy Ash Wednesday such as today,
"You are but flakes, and to flakes you shall return." ~Jay Mermoud
As in "From dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return!"
As in "Ashes to ashes; dust to dust."
As in "We are but dust and shadow."
