Kaleidoscope 2A complex pattern of changing scenes and shapes. A child’s toy.

kaleidoscope too

This can be the closest thing, in my mind to our colourful lives. This is of course if yours is colourful.

Believe me. It can be.

Try to paint a picture in your head, using images from all the time frames in your life; almost like throwing the contents of your shoebox of old photographs onto the floor.

Merging lives

Pick out from the bits you can see clearly, the moods, the situations, the patterns and indeed the other people that have touched your life so far.

These form changing scenes all adding colour, depth and meaning, much like a kaleidoscope.

Allow the images to merge together, go fuzzy around the edges, and they will mesh together forming the real picture of you.

losing focus

All your life situations will touch each other and see each other. Now that would be a scary thought, if it were possible! A phantasmagoric picture of real images and situations in a dreamlike state.


As the bright patterns of your kaleidoscope change, as the photos move like a trick of the light, then all will be accepted, all will be right and good. Your colourful life will be in place and in tune with yourself.
