7- Sit Down For an Adventure
“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” – Groucho Marx
Sometimes instead of getting outside of the box, just sink in and explore what is inside it. You might get lost and not want to leave. Beauty they said, lies in the eyes of the beholder, and that is why I am worried you’ll like what you see and not want to leave just like me. Enjoy!
6- Is There Space for One More ?
Everyday I suffer from being too neat and organized in a messy world, this image gives my heart a feeling of fitting in and being comfortable in my own skin. The organization and clean environment of this place just exceeds my expectations and imagination. Thousands of beings all lined up and ready with no preparation what so ever. Take me there!
5- Plain Old Chocolate
Permitted only for the Royalties in the ancient times chocolate, has been playing an important role in history and continues to exceed our expectations every day. Most of us today take it for granted but I, on the other hand, am very grateful for this royal experience that makes my mouth water and puts a grin on my face just by staring at an image. It helps one believe that we can still be unique even after being plucked and grinned only to become the better version of ourselves. What a delight it is to have chocolate in all its forms in our lives!
4- Good vs. Bad
In the famous Chinese symbol yin and yang, one can easily identify the positive and negative. I believe that that is never the case in the world we live in today. How can good and bad be so organized when in reality, they rely on one another and sometimes even exist at the same time. The painting below shows exactly that. The black just splashed or smudged on the white canvas conveys how the world really works in mysterious ways. There is no orderly fashion for it yet its existence in such a mess is unique and organized in its own understandable manner. The confusion it portrays, also portrays a sense of rest which tells us that it is okey to just let and accept things to happen and be the way they are.
3- Water Matchstick
Sometimes what you were built for is not always what you end up being. You were meant for far greater things than your goal. The fire driving the matchstick to its funeral was defeated by the opposite positive with the same fire to drive the matchstick to far greater things. It is bringing the matchstick to life. Like us, architects in the making. We don’t have to wait for the fire to pin us down to a desk, pen , and paper, but instead to follow the water that will open doors for us to be anything we want to. Designers, architects, or anything really.
2-Riad Rcif, Fez
The use of color and alternating pieces of this fountain and surrounding walls spark a feeling inside that I still haven’t understood. But, I love it, whatever it is. The design is strictly followed and hard work is portrayed. It is so fascinating to just stare at for hours and loose oneself.
“there is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
How inspiring is imperfection in perfection?
