“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud —- the obstacles of life and its suffering. … The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. … Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one.”

- Goldie Hawn (via poetry-and-tea)

Kent Shiraishi | on Tumblr (Japan)

If you are a Mac owner, you might recognize Japanese photographer Kent Shiraishi’s striking photo “Blue Pond" as one of your available desktop backgrounds. A resident of the northern island of Hokkaido, Shiraishi enjoys photographing the natural scenery of his home, including the same stunning pond location during all four seasons. Because the pond, located in Biei, has a dramatic ability to change colors daily, it has been a very fruitful subject for Shiraishi. “Blue Pond" also won Honorable Mention in National Geographic Photo Contest 2011, and his photo of the same location when the water was a beautiful shade of green was an editor’s choice in this year’s contest.

Reed Danziger (b.1966, USA)

Reed Danziger makes complex, intricately layered paintings that become worlds in themselves. Arabesques, mandalas, dots, and other ornamental designs co-mingle with organic shapes and patterns from nature. Like cells frantically reproducing in a Petri dish, their dense clusters seem about to explode from the surface. As she builds each layer, Danziger interweaves stenciled patterns with free-hand drawing. She has long been fascinated with anonymous forms of design and decoration of ancient origins. Her process of layering silkscreen, drawing, and painting simulates the unpredictable ways in which these forms have morphed over the centuries as they have come into contact with new cultures and technologies. Yet her motifs also mimic nature in the way they mutate and regenerate as the paintings evolve. (source: Hosfelt Gallery)
