1001 Days

I follow Annapurna Living, a site created by Carrie-Anne Moss, aka Trinity of The Matrix. She shared these lines, taken from a book entitled Transitions to a Heart-Centered World by Guru Rattana, on Instagram, and I was immediately struck by the power of this message.

1000 minutes = 16.7 hours
1000 days = 2.7 years

Mastery is within reach.

The question is: What habit do we break? What skill do we master?

Broken and Restored

Broken and Restored Multiplication by Suzanne Duchamp,
1918-19, oil and silver paper on canvas
Collection of The Art Institute of Chicago 
"Broken and Restored Multiplication is filled with visual and verbal metaphors of disorder and breakage: at the center, a schematic Eiffel Tower is turned upside down; just below it, a modern cityscape is reflected in its mirror image. The phrases that run up and down along the surface of the picture further the idea of order upended: The mirror would shatter, the scaffolding would totter, the balloons would fly away, the stars would dim, etc. Such images and words seemed fitting for the artists who embraced Dada, a cultural movement that emerged in response to WWI." - The Art Institute of Chicago
