Stained Glass Majesty

There is something about stained glass which is so beautiful and amazing. 


It’s not only artistic and colorful, but also it’s a magical combination of opaqueness and translucence.


It provides cover and privacy from the outside world, yet it plays with the light that comes in through it to give a wonderful effect to any room.


If I could, I would make every room in every building with stained glass. 


I would bask in the light and the color. 


It would feel warm and holy–the light of G-d on me. 


It’s as if G-d and His holy host are streaming in from the Heavens, and surrounding me all about. 


I feel lifted up in space and time stops, all is safe and wonderful in the world. 


Beautiful and holy spiritual energy celebrating, dancing, and singing all around me. 😉

Great Comic Characters

Just loved these adorable comic book characters.


They are originals put together by the comic creator. 


The characters are made from colored Perler Beads.


Once the beads are laid out into these awesome characters, they are iron-melted together.


Each of these was advertised for $20 (not the $15 listed at the top of the picture), but we got a deal. 


Together as a set, they are very cool, colorful, and fun to liven up any environment. 


I have them on a display at home and it’s nice to not be so serious all the time, and instead let loose with some creative juice.  😉

Actual From Abstract

A colleague’s daughter drew this. 


At first glance, I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. 


Do you see what it is?


At first, I was thinking something a little alien perhaps. 


But there it is right in front of you.


It’s the head, ears, nose, and tusks of an elephant. 


I really like the abstractness of this art. 


All from simple circles, and voila you have an elephant. 


Look carefully at what you think you see, and let your mind put the whole picture together. 


That’s how you come to the actual from the abstract! 😉

What’s The Big Fascination?

From Victoria’s Secret to colorful art renditions, medieval metal, and cross-dressing on the neighborhood corner…


This does not seem to be about being angels, unchaste, or even “sexy-wexy “(as I think my mother-in-law calls it). 


So I really have to ask what is all the fascination about here?


Culturally, we seem to be a little OCD. 


If Martians visited us, I don’t think they would understand us at all.


Frankly, I’m not sure that I do either!  😉

Does Color Make The Man?

Thought these were some mighty bold and colorful Men’s shoes. 


I personally like color and making a little bit of a a statement.


In a sense, color makes the man happy, exciting, alive, and uplifting. 


With these shoes, I suppose if your going dancing or a splendid night out on the town these may work.


So there is a time and place for everything. 


Day-to-day, these shoes are a little out there, and more than a little scary, and too much for my sense of tasteful design.  😉
