1: This photo of some storm clouds taken in the spring of 2011 in Broomfield, Colorado. Kaliadoscopes were each created from the enhanced photo below and the following tale ensued. Pam
3: The One The One lived in the heavens and saw the Many down below. The Many had grown to cover the land. The One was lonely.
4: Tri-Union One decided to duplicate itself for companionship. The process was so easy, One did it again. The Many continued to grow.
7: Four Corners One ignored the companionship it created and set out to duplicate itself again. One was jealous of the Many and the differences they had.
8: Centered Out One tried different ways to recreate itself so each copy was different. Soon, One forgot why it started recreating and was caught up in creating.
11: Centered In One realized that being among others was not enough. One searched its creations to share everything with Another.
12: Four Square One began to interact with each creation, searching for the right one. Not only did One create different looks, each creation had different personalities.
14: Duplicated Efforts As One went from each creation to another it discovered there were more than One had created. One realized... Another had been creating as well.
17: Comfort in Many One soon realized that One was now Many. Many in the heavens were not like Many on the land and One was comforted by this achievment.
18: Too Many to Count One continued its search for Another.
19: There were just too many and One was becoming discouraged.
20: One Another When One finally found Another, the very heavens glowed with a new emotion. Happiness. One was not lonely anymore.
22: One and Another began their time together by learning about each other's differences. | Together
23: They also spent time apart, marveling in their happiness when together again. | Apart
24: Happiness for One Another had been found. The heavens and earth were as they should be.
25: Never again would one be too many.
