Banging one's head

This lamp. This, this THING.

It is lovely. I love it. It is a work of beauty. The actual lamp part is outside the camera angle, this was an old photo I found. It can be raised or lowered and is weighted by the metal ball the tassels were hanging from (no tassels for the past 1,5 years).

It is heavy. Both the ball, and the lamp it is balancing.

And today I had knocked my head on it once too many and it came down. I lost my steam before I put it up in the kitchen instead (taking down that lamp and putting it in a box), but it might happen another day. In the livingroom I have a naked bulb hanging close to the ceiling now. It is a colour-changing one though, something I picked up for fun a year or two back.

At least my window will be easy to spot?
