One of my Twitter buddies mentioned today that, as a kid, he wanted to make a career out of creating the images below.
They’re Spirograph, which was one of my favorite toys as a kid. (If you haven’t heard of it, well, you’re probably not a Boomer.)
We used pen and ink on paper and the special Spirograph tools to create those images — this was years before laptop computers or Photoshop manipulation were common.
They were all handmade.
Looking at all the discs and circles in the kit, I am itching to play with it again. It was a lot of fun.
Wonder what became of our Spirograph?
Egg siblings — any ideas?

What is your passion?
British photographer Jack Daly is asking people this question, and staging photographs on his website People with Passions to tell their stories.
I love the simplicity of the images…and I like thinking about what passion I would want photographed if I had the opportunity. Perhaps movies…or theatre.

To inspire today’s post, I scrolled through previous images I have used in the blog and selected one at random —
Not sure this one is going to do the job…especially on a national holiday. Kinda feel the couch calling instead.
But wait — I have a laptop. I can write on the couch. I’ll write my blog post there. No worries. No problems.
The TV is in front of the couch…and Silver Linings Playbook is on Showtime. That might get in the way of my writing.
Not so far.
