Your cool pix are makin' me miss playing with my PSP!

Hope you got my email, and the snail mail too, although I know what kind of lies are told over the postal countertop--I think 3 to 5 days was highly over-optimistic!

I miss you playin' with PSP, too! One addict to another. I'll check my email NOW - and yeah, 3-5 days was a complete fairy tale, but I'll surely keep my eyes open Jess.

Stangely beautiful images you have created and this poem by Keats came to my mind.....

A COAT

I made my song a coat
Covered with embroideries
Out of old mythologies
From heel to throat;
But the fools took it,
Wore it in the world's eyes
As though they'd wrought it.
Song, let them take it,
For there's more enterprise
In walking naked.

Herhimnbryn...thank for taking the time to share that poem, which is wonderful.
I love the line.."but fools took it/Wore it in the world's eyes..." Great poetry is always welcome and appreciated.

Darkmind, hello and welcome. As a child,I loved kaleidoscopes...When I was told they were just pieces of colored glass and mirror, it didn't lessen the miracle of them a bit. The top piece reminds me of compositions of Gustav Klimt, the way the faces are almost incidental at the top and the pattern of the kimono uses most of the space. I like this piece (the top one especially)for the color and light. Hopelessly not post-modern me. Thanks for visiting. I love Mella's blog, too.

how gorgeous - a kaleidoscope filled with facets of you. Stunning!

Thanks Zhoen, Teri, PF.
When I do these, I become a design element, like the cloth. This Kimono is another Hilltribe buy and I love the colors and pattern in it. Besides, I had serious housework to do - and making a kaleidoscope of myself suddenly seemed urgent and pressing business!
