Freaky Friday: Morphing Babies

THE WAY KHOOL SITE OF THE DAY IS:

What Will Hollywood Look Like in 2026

And this is what you get: celebrity babies morphing into young adults with a click of your mouse. It is freaky in a khool way and makes you reflect upon how fast time flies!

Now that I've watched celebrity babies morph, I want this tool so I can see everyone (inlcuding myself) morph into our looks of 2026! Whooaaaa....

Book Odyssey



Today's Way Khool Site Is
BOOKCROSSING

I am so jazzed about Bookcrossing because when I finally crossed paths with this fantastic site, I totally resonated with the concept-- it was love at first sight for me. I have intentionally been leaving books in public places for a long time, and here was a website with the same concept doing a bang-up job and working the idea of sharing and circulating books with others on a big scale. Impressive! Once you register (for free!) with Bookcrossing, you write a brief journal entry about the book you are going to leave somewhere for another to serendipitously discover. Bookcrossing then gives you a BCID registration number so this book's adventures can be tracked. You can download (again....for free!) labels to put inside of the book to identify it as a Bookcrossing Book with it's registered number OR you can purchase their many choices of beautiful, artsy ones and other khool things if you want to earn some angel wings with them and help them out.

Thus it was that yesterday I left home with three registered books with the labels inside and my handwritten note on the interior front cover. "Take me, I'm free..." My intention was to place these three books in different locations on Maui to be discovered, adopted, savored and then sent on their merry way once again. How much fun is that?! For me, LOTS! These books now have an opportunity to travel all over the world, and many of them may do so. Check out Bookcrossing and read how Bookcrossing Books get around. The stories these well-travelled books tell about their journeys and their momentary caretakers is a book in itself.

I always wondered whom had adopted the books I have left in various places, and now there is a way of finding out when you register your book with Bookcrossing. If there is a 'catch' and someone reads the label inside, then they can log onto the Bookcrossing website with the registration number and record it. They can choose to read it and release it into the wild again for others to enjoy. I think this is the greatest formula, and I plan to leave a lot of books wherever I go using the Bookcrossing registration.

If there are any people on Maui reading this blog, I am leaving clues for you. The first book was left perched beside a sculpture at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (see top photo). The second book was left inside the MACC Auditorium. The third one was left outside on a table near Jamba Juice in the Piilani Shopping Center. Happy Hunting!

Serenity

The Way Khool Site of today is iserenity.

Do you often wish you could mute all the discordant sounds like that weed whacker outside your doorway for instance and listen to peaceful Nature sounds? Then this site is for you!

Pour yourself a nice cool glass of fresh lemonade, sit back, listen and remember what it was like when you were a kid. You will have lots of choices. For example, listen to a Cricket Concert, Rain, a Bubbling Brook, Bird Songs, Crackling Fire, Purring Performance and many more.

And if you're a country person longing for the sounds of the big city, they have those too!

Dontcha feel better already?

Way Khool Blog Born today, a twin!

Collage: Kuanyin

I've been reflecting a lot lately about how MANY WAY KHOOL websites and blogs there are in cyberspace. This new blog is my tribute blog to the blogs and sites that blow me away with their khoolness, imagination, creativity, wisdom, intentions and usefulness! Thus, I created this blog to feature one blog or website every day so that more people will discover the blog or site. My collage shown above pictures my intentions in this regard: the butterfly represents transformation; the Statue of Liberty represents freedom; and the wolf howling underneath the Milky Way represents our potential for Spirit Greatness when we link up with one another and merge our intentions for solidarity, healing, peace, love, and unity. Imagine...just imagine what kind of world we can create!
