High up on the ceiling sat the chandelier - looking down on everyone in the room. It had seven arms and a hundred bulbs on each. Each bulb had a glass case with intricate designs on it.

The central portion was a bright orange sphere which glowed like the sun when the room was dark.

As a child, I always wondered how proud the chandelier must be of itself to be high up there.

I did not know.. that up there, the chandelier was tied by its feet and suspended upside down from the ceiling. It wasn't too easy being the chandelier.

People who are talked about and who are called 'celebrities' are often such chandeliers. Beautiful to look at and admire - but in fact, tied by the feet.
