Natural Architecture – For Humanity

Upturned roots, crumbling rocks, tossed-around branches... all combine into fantastic structures. I would love to see a city built from such an inspiration. Massive edifices twisting and intertwining; made of steel, concrete, and glass. Giant sustainable living spaces, fled with living plants, greenhouses, and walkways for people to live healthy lives. No more stress-inducing strait … Continue reading Natural Architecture – For Humanity

Abstract Landscape In Isolation Times

I dreamt of a floating forest, displaying the basic colours one might find in a sun-dappled wood. This morphed as my dreaming mind tried to tell a story for it and it became floating mountains... some part from Lovecraftian dreamscapes, some part from Miyazaki's moving and floating architectures. I enjoyed the mass floating off to … Continue reading Abstract Landscape In Isolation Times

So, I'll just continue looking, and... ... REALLY ENJOY ALL THE DIFFERENT "MYSELVES" I FIND. By my count I've been toying with … Continue reading What we find when finding ourselves

Top Tips for A Purposeful Life

Law 13 - Live with purpose: This chapter in T.J. Hoisington’s “If You Think You Can” is both summation of the previous principals and the most crucial of them all, without which no progress can be begun, much less be made. It’s thanks to this principle that I started blogging, pushing myself to clearly determine … Continue reading Top Tips for A Purposeful Life

Odds & Ends – Plans Change

Setting a new goals and getting amazed as the universe conspires to make happen what really needs to happen.
