Bathroom Aesthetics (3)

But perhaps you do not have an open-air shower. In such a case, you could do a lot worse than install a glass brick window in your indoor bathroom:

Come closer. Take a look:

Can you see how the view from outside is transformed: the slender betel palm stalk, the jumbled greenery, the wooden side-wall of the house -- twisted and jumbled in the bricks' kaleidoscopic eye; and shifting -- now this way, now that -- as you yourself shift on your feet, now a little to the left, now a little to the right? Can you see the little yellow veins in the cocoa wood? And the flashes of green lightning in the bush -- like the green flash in the peacock's tail or in the setting sun over the ocean?

And can you believe the impossible twistiness of the palm-tree stem? It seems to want to tie itself in knots.

The judges say (Radamanthes and all): 9.3 - 9.3 - 9.4 - 9.5 - 9.2 - 9.3 - 9.4
