Shrink Yourself!


Aha! Look what I found in my Apophysis folders. It looks kind of like one of those ink blot tests, don't you think? What do you see when you look at it? First I saw a butterfly but the longer I looked at it, the more it started to look like a tick to me. Yuck. Now it looks more like a waterfall. Yes, definitely a waterfall. Maybe that's because I have waterfalls on my mind because I'm going on a trip (tomorrow) where I get to see a waterfall I've been wanting to see again for a while. Yay!

I will be gone for about 9 days on my yay trip. So I'm leaving you some homework. :-P Look at the "ink blot" and tell me what you see & why you think you see it. "Shrink" yourself!

Waterfall, here I come!

Oops, I forgot to mention, you need to click on the picture to see it better.

Hugs and smooches!

These are obviously gossamer roots exiting a seed in search of water (falls). Hope your trip involves pictures?
Thanks for visiting.

First, I'm glad I'm first.
2) So many thanks to you for staying with me.
3)I mustn't shrink myself. The idea made me smile immediately, but as there are chunks already falling off of me - seriously, times are real hard - I can't afford to.
4) The blog has evolved, like some others I haven't seen in a long while. I don't remember seeing your photos before!
5) This one is really exquisite, I love it.
6) So far, I see 4 decorated dolphins.
7) I hope your trip delivers all that you ask of it and more!

H's & sm'es back to you,

Sxxx

PS, of course, maybe I'm not first after all! There's the commentmoderation to get through, & you're now away. LOL!

Its very pretty. Especially the blue / gray rippled bits in the middle. Don't know what it is, but I like it a lot.

DINK said...

i see a frog that has just landed after a good giant leap. i see that prolly i love frogs but the blueish whiteish part looks like the frog and underneath him is an aray of beautiful leaves and some moss!

mackeydoodle said...

I see a frog being eaten by some vicious fishys!

Michael said...

I seem to want to focus on that center part. I see a mask of a man radiating stuff including a series of pen tips...

Take Care

I SEE AN EXOTIC VERY DEADLY SPIDER. HE IS IN DISGUISE WITH HIS BEAUTIFUL COLORS, BUT HIS LEGS (DO SPIDERS HAVE THAT MANY LEGS) AND THOSE EYES GIVE HIM AWAY. HOPE THE WATERFALL WAS BEAUTIFUL

jane said...

I see 2 things, the 1st was a face looking underwater & it has underwater goggles on.
The 2nd was similar. It's a Hawaiian motif & is a Kahuna like face on a surfboard. I can only imagine the stuff on the edges is water.
I hope you have a nice vacation & look forward to hearing all about it.

I was hoping for some stunning thoughts, but whatever I came up with it still looked most like the mirrored image of a pelvic bone to me. :-)

Oliviah, hugs to you, x

KSHIPPYCHIC said...

Trée said...

KSHIPPYCHIC said...

Beginning to worry here.
Are you OK????

Autumn Storm said...

Love to you, Oliviah, xo

tsduff said...

Oliviah - did you think you were forgotten? NOT!!!

You are much thought-of and worried about every day. Thank you Wontar for giving me the scoop.

Love and Hugs
Terry

DaveB said...

From one blogger to the whole "Oliviah love group", is anyone else worried about her??
No posts since July is very unusual. I've sent her emails and gotten nothing. Does anyone know if she is OK?

Evydense said...

Hi Olivia:

I see it's been a long time since you've been on here....perhaps you've given it up for awhile at least. I also had withdrawn from Blogland for a couple months when the old bipolar bug-a-boo started changing my intentions again!

Hope you're doing well.

BTW, I see an old African voodoo mask being worn by some extra-terrestrial creature with three vicious-looking claws on each side of its body. (I must be in a 'spooky' mood today!!

Trée said...

Happy Thanksgiving O. :-)

Trée said...

Happy Holidays my dear sweet O. I miss you more than I know how to say.

LZ Blogger said...

I see six of those Travelosity elfs that have spent way TOO MUCH time in one of those British PUBS tasting the ale samples! ~ jb///

Michael said...

so I hope you are well.
Miss your stuff.

Take Care
Michael

Oliviah said...

I need to respond to all of your comments and I think the best way to do this will be to do it in a single post.

I am so sorry to have worried those of you who have worried about me and to any who may have felt insulted that your comments went unanswered, I am so sorry about that as well.

I haven't forgotten you. I have been unable to post due to illness. My doctor said it is relapsing/remitting, which means there will be relapses at any time & without warning. I guess I am in remission or I wouldn't be able to sit here and write, much less figure out how to use Picasa. It is late and I still haven't visited blogs like I said I was going to do earlier today.

Tomorrow I will write my post about my diagnosis, probably just try to quote from the booklet they gave me rather than my own words. Maybe that way it will be shorter and the least depressing way to write about it. I have upset people by talking about these things. I'm sorry about that too.
