Tiny Movies-on-Demand

When you can't decide what to do next: press the heel of your hands into your eyeballs and watch creatures and faces dance across the screen. Blaugustine (May 25) is mesmerized by what she sees. What do you see? (And btw, while at Blaugustine's, scroll down to May 22 where she confesses she is addicted to blogging. Sound like anybody YOU know?)

Here's another trick to "see" what can't be seen--your own blood vessels that worm their way across your very retinas:

Take a small penlight (the little colored ones you carry on your keychain will do--but it must be very small and not so awfully bright). Press the light gently toward the outside of your closed eyelid. Move the light in a moderately slow small circle against the eyelid. You should see the shadows of your retinal vessels as the light moves around and around. If you stop, the retinal cells fatigue and the image disappears.

And you wondered what you were going to do for entertainment this weekend!
