have you ever seen a cobra up close with its hood raised, spread full?
if you can detach yourself of your fear of its killing venom, the raised hood will seem like a benediction.
it is as though some Godly presence is showering its blessings on you. the wonderful pattern on its hood glistens magically. the beads that are its eyes hold you mesmerised. its tongue darts out and darts in, creating a blur that is the pinpoint of concentration.
