honestly...

I did not set up this shot...honestly...this display of self expression stared at me when I lifted my cereal bowl from the table this morning...and it kind of reflects how I have felt the last couple of weeks...

This video however put a smile on my face...

It's a classic in its own time... the expression and the foreshadowing of the ominous spoon. Quite funny actually.

LOL on the cereal face. That's funny because I saw a strip of paper on the floor this morning that looked like a smile. So I left it there. lol.

Wow. That's a cool video. Love the elephant. Love the song.

A fabulous reminder of how our perceptions affect and reflect our world... My mind took a while to put together the sad face of the cheerios, seeing instead only the fascinating pattern of woodgrain underneath...

One of my favorite books when I was younger was Richard Bach's Illusions. The maxim that left a lasting impression on me was "Perspective, use it or lose it", which is to say that the world is a kaleidoscope of meanings!

It is remarkable how things display themselves to reflect our own moods. Is it serendipitous that we see it? Or is it just that we are looking for validation..? Someone sent me a photo of cloud flipping me off on a day where life was... arggg. (though I think the photo may be altered.

Geez, I'm jabbering. Hope things look more like mini wheats these days!

Some would see on the floor an outward expression of an inward depression. Others would just see a messy eater.

Hi ac, I don't know about the "Itsy Bitsy" corn variety, but other types of corn are ready to be picked when the kernels are fully formed.If you wait till the silk turns brown you can feed it to your neighborhood birds. I,also, am into chairs, the Lazy Boy variety mostly.

Oh, they are awesome! I saw them when they came to the university in my town. That was a very cool tribute to NYC.
