— Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Russian composer 1840-1893)

Did you know that you can freeze bubbles? These temperatures are perfect for using that left over bubble mix from the summer. Go outside on any day when it’s below 32 degrees F and try this: blow a bubble and then catch it on the bubble wand.  Wait a few moments while it freezes- it will turn into a cool crystal ball before it shatters!

You can also make icy crystals with your bubble solution! To do this: dip a large loop in the bubble solution – but dont blow a bubble. Instead, watch the crystals grow. The will form a lattice structure!

Too cold to go outside? You can learn how to make your own crystal ball bubbles in the freezer with soap by checking out the site below…

Autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire draws spellbinding 18ft picture of New York from memory… after a 20-minute helicopter ride over city.

I had a book about him when i was a kid, obviously he was a kid too then and i was totally enamored by him. So glad to see he’s still able to do what he loves.

love this.

mrmcqueen: MAY 

Inspired by the famous Czech writer and poet Karel Hynek Mácha and his poem ‘May’. I created an illustrated alphabet, in which every character illustrates words which appear in the poem. Afterwards, I cut the alphabet to pieces and rearranged them into new characters, which now represent the concrete stories. via
