I am easily amused. I don't need to go to a rock concert, or a NBA basketball game. No sir (or ma'am), I amuse myself (now stop that) often. My latest "amusement" is a solar powered thing-a-mig-jig that rotates two crystals that are attached to a window with suction cups. Once the sunlight warms up the mini-solar panels the two crystals rotate, dispersing rainbow colored lights throughout the room containing the window.
I discovered this delightful little device while visiting a friend's house last summer and noticed rainbows crawling across his walls. I asked him "Don, what is THAT?" He told me it was a little solar powered device that he purchased from the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Of course I HAD to have one.
I got one, then two, then three, then four! I liked them so much I got another one as a gift for a friend. Then I got two more as Christmas gifts for more friends. So far, all the recipients of my gifts like them.
It is little things like this that make life more bearable. Sometimes it doesn't take much. Who needs drugs when you can go on a real Trip naturally?
