Mag 63


That picture and that title brought back a lot

of old memories.

Over the years

I often thought of doing a regular radio program

Or a television show

Or a magazine

Or a newsletter.

I would call it “Kaleidoscope”

To indicate the variety to be found


The years went by,

As did the jobs.

I never put together the radio program

Or the television show

Or the magazine

Or the newsletter.

But eventually I did put together a blog.

It ranges over a variety of subjects,

Features a variety of music,

And a variety of pictures.

And I called it:

Oddball Observations.

This was prompted by a sweet and talented lady named Tess Kincaid, aka Willow.  She began Magpie Tales back in February of 2010.  Each week she posts a photo and encourages, dares, stimulates her readers to compose a poem, a story or whatever prompted by the photo.  This week is the 63rd such week.  You can find submissions by other writers at Magpie Tales

Seen in retrospect, analyzed by the individual moments and pieces, your life's work has been a kaleidoscope and a colorful variety at that.

Very similar! Is that like verisimililude? Could go with Oddball “Kaleidoscope”
or“Kaleidoscope” Observations...? Nah; I like Oddball Observations...a radio show? Cool!

Thanks for the giggles, and for your kind words. x

What do they say...Life happens while you're making plans? I always enjoy your meanderings.

I think it was "Life is what happens while you're making other plans" and I think it was John Lennon who said it first but that could be wrong.
