ABC Resolution: kaleidoscopes


May 21 – June 3
What if you could put humpty-dumpty together again?

Oh, the amazement of the sights first seen through a kaleidoscope! Little bits of glass refract light to break up the world we know into small slivers and pieces. Colored shapes juxtapose and recombine in new forms as we turn the tube. Broken into new patterns, we are forced to rethink how things are constructed. How familiar solids can be remade into new objects of wonderment and delight.

Would that we could create such an alteration in our business life. Gently rotate a conversation, relationship, process or goal into different configurations. A new, novel or variant of the old, yet keeping remnants and whispers of the past. No huge upheaval. No catastrophic revolution. No rebellious drama. Just a subtle metamorphosis, the same things calmly remade by slight rearrangement and re-adjacency. Twist, replace, redefine, renew.

Kaleidoscopes embody many things.

• The concept of change, enacted without violence and catastrophe. Rather gently shifted. Rearranged into new patterns and configurations for growth and evolution.

• The discovery of how things, thoughts and ideas can be deconstructed. Broken into their component parts for greater knowledge and wisdom.

• The understanding of the order and randomness in the universe. How we and our circumstance is one of an infinite amount of combinations. No better. No worse. Just as we are and in any number of choices we can dream.

Kaleidoscopes open up our internal and external vision. They enable us to see in a different light that which may have seemed fixed to be full of amazing possibilities.
