No thought Thursday

All my life, I have loved kaleidoscopes...
...the magical colors, the infinite patterns that form and change.
So this is a joy to me!
I think if I stared at it long enough, it might send me off into dreamland,
which, it being nearly time to Get Ready For Work,
would be a Bad Idea.

Hello June:
Ooooh errrrr!! We love kaleidoscopes too and only recently at a Brighton Artist Open House weekend we saw an artist constructing these. Absolutely fascinating.

Wow. That IS amazing & mesmerizing.

Time to get ready for work. Oh, my gosh. I'm so grateful that's no longer something I would say.

I now feel hypnotized, June!

That would be extremely scarey in black , white and shades of grey .

how cool is that - and if you move your mouse around, the colors expand and contract and change rapidly. isn't it fun when bits of life show up as a whole?

I love kaleidoscopes too and now that I'm out of my funk and the party is over and I'm not going to the reunion, I think I'll go make one. No drugs I'm afraid--the Advil worked. Not sure if I should reply on comments on my own blog or comment on yours so you;ll see it.LOL

I remember having these as a child. It was fascinating and magical for me.
Thanks for bringing back a fond memory.

Too Cool! thanks

(time for bed now, that's enough excitement for a 57 year old).

Goodness, yes, one could sit before it all day with one's mouth slightly open. Amazing.

Nice blog. Thanks for sharing it.

I have a friend who's a mandala artist who sells mandala jewelry, paintings and whatnot. We lived together about a year and I must have gotten addicted to the things during that time. She still sends me pics of her work, but I find myself sometimes during idle moments loading a pic on Paintshop Pro and running it through the kaleidescope options for a quickfix.

I came to your blog because of the name, aging gratefully. There's too few of us do that.

Gracias,
J
