happy new year!

i have a gift for you.
in my entire life.
right now!

it is artist and graphic designer bruce mau's
which darling stef sent me last week,
which blew me away,
and i have re-read it every day since.

he has summed up everything helpful and practical and crazy and fanciful and inspirational on the subject of creativity,
that i have ever thought,
or wanted to think,
or tried to think,
or might've been getting ready to think next week but i wasn't quiiiiiite there yet.
i want to embroider it...on 43 cushions...

take five minutes to go
right now
(you'll thank me, i promise!!!)

wishing you the happiest new year ever
and a 2010 that is full of
and yes, especially,

  3. Интересно написано....но многое остается непонятнымb

  4. Uh-oh, I think you've started something. Something GOOD, but I think this manifesto is going to go viral. Maybe we can crash his server. heh heh

    I posted it to my blog and to twitter, and some of my tweeple are posting it to Facebook. And awaaaayyy we go! :-)


  5. Does this mean you have to love your experiments all the while time comparing them to all the pretty kids you see everywhere? You tell yourself your kid is just as fabulous and cross your fingers that they may just grow into their looks.

  6. Happy New Year girlie!! Love the card. That is a very cool manifesto.

  8. Okay, I love your super snowflake rocks....

    I started to read through some of the manifesto but since I'm super tired because I had a rigorous session of Wii Dance Dance Revolution my thinking isn't too sharp right now...LOL...

    I did catch this one:

    25. Don’t clean your desk.
    You might find something in the morning that you can’t see tonight.

    this man is a you can see, I'm a smidge behind on my google reader...happy new year sista...
