Fashion

 Flip-flops, ballerina flats, and Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes were the latest trend in shoes; Keds were worn by Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande; also popular were colored jeans, skinny jeans, capri pants, ankle length pants, and leggings; maxi and midi skirts were common with hemlines the longest since The Great Depression.  Layer shirts and T-shirts, graphic hoodies, and neon colors were the current styles for men and women. Fashion in 2010 was a mix of yesteryear and alternative fashions.

Weather

Quake hits Haiti devasting the capital Port-au-Prince – approximately 160,000 fatalities.

Word of the week

kaleidoscope (noun) a scene, situation, or experience that keeps changing and has many different aspects; a toy that shows changing patterns, consisting of a tube with colored pieces inside.

Words that rhyme or almost rhyme with kaleidoscope: devote, antidote, hygroscope, widest hope, horoscope, telescope, pious hopes, divided vote, guidance note.

Oh! Tweedledee and Tweedledum

A horoscope is like a kaleidoscope

 Changing situations that muddle mindsets

Experiences that have unlike aspects

Don’t let a tube with colored pieces inside

Determine the day the music died

Note fractals are never-ending patterns

  Whether a left turn, right turn or U-turns

Let the randomness of life unravel

Map out journies that razzle-dazzle

If you don’t use your time wisely

At least keep it blithely tidy

    Very good observation: “Be kind to one another because what happens here doesn’t stay here.”

    Eugenia,

    Thanks for dropping by for a bit of Christmas cheer with today’s featured artists’ holiday album. I remember getting my first iPhone in 2010 and I wasn’t sure how much I’d like it but I’m totally hooked on Apple products. I’m lovin’ my iPhone 8! Ain’t technology cool? Have a very Merry little Christmas! 😉

    Seems a lot of 2010 fashion is repeating itself in 2017. Life is like a kaleidoscope…beautiful and ever-changing.

      Fashion does repeat itself. Some of it I like and some of it should be left in the past.

    Another interest packed Tuesday Chatter Eugenia. David Cameron becoming Prime Minister (oh how we danced in the streets) seemed like a lifetime ago. Loved the poem.

      I’m glad you liked it, Davy. I thought the bit about David Cameron would be of interest to my friends in the UK.
