Something simple for a new friend, a holistic stress-management coach, who lists her occupation as
Chaos-to-Bliss Guide—“Queen of Calm” is her self-appointed title.

I’m mixing my cultures here with a Victorian gazing ball, an Indian yoga hand shape (mudra), and a Chinese
Yin-Yang symbol. But hey, it works for her!

I put together some of my CAD design drawings, and an on-site video clip, to come up with this .. https://vimeo.com/167384702

Positive comments, ONLY, are welcome. :-)

Well John, you’re mighty particular about your comments, aren’t you…..?!

In this case, as is usual with your lamp projects, you’ve come up with another winner! I’ve always liked your kinetic lamps, as they are very unique, and fun to watch.

An idea for you: You might include in this lamp a slot to place an iPhone/Android/etc, in order for a person to play soothing sounds out of the lamp, while meditating in front of it. For me, I’d play some ocean sounds, to unwind from the stress of the day.

Anyway, keep ‘em comin’!

Hello John
I guess your project is OK but I fell asleep watching it and missed the end! Sorry about that chief!

What is that cute little animal Joe has found?

madts: Thanks … I guess.

oldnovice: You’re having too much pun.

JoeinGA: Ah, yes. Always the appropriate clipart !!!

Mean_Dean: No “smart phone” for this guy. The Romans had an early version, and it led to the downfall of their empire.

robscastle: Personally, I wouldn’t be sharing the news that I fell asleep in the middle of a 56-second movie.

That’s one cool project and I agree with others in saying it is very creative but when I look at it I can’t help thinking of Richard Simmons,lol.

Love the video John. This may even reduce high blood pressure. I think I would like to see the full size model.
