I want to show y’all this nifty new kaleidoscope I just got in the mail.
Pretty neato, huh? I ordered it from a fella, Mike Speed, when we were in Kerrville. He had a booth set up at the courthouse square and only had a sample left. Figures so I ordered on and it came, although this is not just like the sample…I like mine better. Well it was custom made for moi after all. I told Mike that I would like a “wand”, that’s the clear part with the colored sand & stars in it, with mostly purples and likewise the stained glass part to be in the purple family. No, I’m not quite a purple freak, everything is not that color in my house or my closet, but it IS my favorite color. Well I suppose my studio door and the French doors into the back of the house are purple…and I’m thinking about painting the shutters and front door purple too. Hey I’m a unique kinda person and that makes me special. Besides purple is a fueng shui color for fame so maybe it’ll give my blog a boost or my writing or one of my many other talents. Do to, special is so a Talent! And yellow is for health and that’s the other color I’m thinking about using. The front door is currently red and someone else on our street went and painted theirs red and that made me want to repaint the front door and the shutters to match it.
Speaking of color the one that I dislike most is taupe, it is like this whole non color as far as I’m concerned that and the DMV loves it. Beige / khaki is okay just not taupe.
And now for a totally different turn of events
How’s about a poem? You WOULD like that, wouldn’t you my dear internets…sure you would. Okay you talked me into it.
Echoes of Glory
And clouds appeared as in a surreal painting
Dark purple-black, edged in golden orange
Shimmering reflections of a Texas sun
Smiling upon the red, white and blue
Proudly waving in a night’s falling
Light and the moon and stars rose
Ever so gently in translucent echoes of glory
Happy Fourth of July to all my dear internets. May Old Glory fly forever free!
