I walk and I see
The beauty of simplicity
That one buttercup standing out
Shooting upward among short green grass
Calling out, screaming out for my discernment
I answer in spite of myself and approach as a somnambulist,
Hand stretched out ready to stroke the stem, the petals, gently
Guiding it toward my tool of appreciation, the more I use it on the
Small, the further is its individuality magnified… I close onto its delicacy,
Its silky petals, the brightness of unadulterated yellow, the intricacies of its
Nerve map, the bulge of its heart and discover the secret of purity.

Je marche et je vois
La beauté de la simplicité
Cet unique bouton d’or saillir
Jaillir vers le haut parmi l’herbe
Courte et verte criant, hurlant pour
Mon discernement, je réponds malgré moi
Et approche comme un somnambule, main tendue
Prêt à carresser la tige, les pétales, le guidant
Doucement vers mon outil d’appréciation, plus je l’utilise
Sur l’insignifiant, plus est amplifié son individualité… je ferme
Sur sa délicatesse, ses pétales soyeux, la luminosité du jaune pur, les subtilités
De sa carte de nerfs, le renflement de son coeur et découvre le secret de la pureté.

Drew Dudley: Everyday leadership


This video came from the blogger,
http://waitingforthekarmatruck.com/2013/08/28/sometimes-i-get-the-message/
it made me smile the whole way through, it’s a true inspiration, not too long (6.15 mn)
and full of humor. The message goes through beautifully & in a fun way.
If we could try to live the way Drew Dudley is talking about, the world would’ve been
& will be,a better place to live in.
Enjoy it as much if not more, than I did 🙂

The Bloomberg Commission: Giuseppe Penone: Spazio di Luce (Tree artist)


I can’t believe the serendipity! Full swing into my tree project I run smack into the article of a cultural magazine on an artist I hadn’t heard of before, Giuseppe Penone, who’s art is all around trees 🙂
I then started to research on You tube for a video that meets the criteria of an interesting blog with a certain level of quality… The appropriate language… Short and stimulating so as to keep the attention of the viewers.
I came up with this and hope you’ll enjoy this unusual form of art.

Published on Sep 4, 2012
Over the past 45 years, Italian artist Giuseppe Penone has examined our relationship to nature. For the latest Bloomberg Commission, he has created a twelve metre bronze cast of a tree, with a radiant gold-leaf interior, which spreads across the columned Whitechapel Gallery.
