K is for Kaleidoscope
"Creativity is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. You look at a set of elements, the same ones everyone else sees, but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces into an enticing new possibility. Effective leaders are able to shake up their thinking as though their brains are kaleidoscopes, permitting an array of different patterns out of the same bits of reality." - Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Besides being a pretty gnarly word to spell, kaleidoscopes could keep me busy for hours. I love the different psychedelic patterns and movement. I've always felt that they've had a calming sense over me. It allows you to focus on one moving/changing item while the world around you fades into the background. Yeah, I'm a hippie. Sue me.

Don't blame me if time flies bye while you're painting beautiful patterns and you're late to pick up the kids from school.
