KALEIDASCOPE´╗┐

I had one,or access, perhaps, to another's as a child.  Have seen a few through the years, on coffee tables, as an adult.  There may even be a miniature one hidden away in the flotsam of household collections.

A fascinating trinket with the  attraction of the stars in the galaxy, to attract and hold our attention for short periods of time and mesmerize us; ´╗┐to tranquil thoughts much longer.

My sister keeps an old kaleidascope on her living room coffee table ... I never tire of looking through it.

Excellent, sparsely-worded, but uber-effective.

I've always loved them, and would be tempted to buy one today, if I happened across one!

So trippy, so much cheaper than drugs, and legal too...Without all those messy side-effects. Ha ha.

I haven't come across one since childhood - but would love too!

The image is still there!
