As a child, I could spend hours literally looking into this little tube.
I would watch everything through it: my toys, the carpet, my parents, my meals, the ground, ants and other creepers. Everything got a re-looking through the kaleidoscope.
I wish I could find one now. Maybe I’ll go on a hunt. I am looking specifically for the one that is just a set of faceted mirrors. Not the one with the little beads, though they are fun too, I prefer to watch the world being deformed through it, than looking a colours.
I need a change of scenery, something that makes the world look different. I don’t really fight reality most of the times but I would definitely take a 10-15 minutes of fantasy modified world.
With great respect!
