Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

cool light over interiors around the world. Yes this month the Lava Lamp is 50
years old and we say Happy Birthday. They were first marketed by a British
company as an exotic conversation piece in 1963. British inventor Edward
Craven-Walker, was inspired by an odd looking liquid filled egg timer he saw in
a pub in southwest Britain. Britain's Love & Peace Generation, saw an
affinity between the fluorescent lava flows and its' groovy and easy going spirit

Lava Lamp. Do you remember this blast from the past?
Have a happy
psychedelic Friday all.
