Just saw that Hiroshi Sambuichi won the 2018 “Daylight Award.”  Ok, somewhat odd sounding award to win, natch, but his work is a beaut and does indeed do some lovely — and quite stunning — things with light and views.  I spoke of his building that I visited on Naoshima Island here, indeed making note of the qualities of light that were present.

Every picture above makes me want to visit and explore each of the buildings in detail.  The angled frames crossing a path with light at the end of a dark corridor?  What is it?  Where does it lead?  I can feel the experience of the space just from the photo.  Or feel the serenity of the setting sun, reflecting off the perfectly smooth pool of water at the edge of the forever-going overhang that frames a riveting horizontal slice of the world.  Or that cistern!  The old and worn and rugged brick in contrast with the smooth and vibrant wood, punctuated by the flash of green, the moss that brings life in the shafts of light, heightened even further by the glass block that catches and makes physical the rays of sun.  Sign.  Me.  Up!

Wonderful work.  All noted for future travels.

Hiroshi Sambuichi, laureate of the 2018 The Daylight Award.

I shared this lovely video during the Mindfulness panel I led last weekend…

This is your world

You’re the creator

Find freedom on this canvas

KF Mind Boggle

I’ve just had one of those Niels Bohr-type moments in kung fu, and I’m a) resisting the potential insight really hard and b) finding my mind blown.  Cool, weird, frustrating, exciting, confusing, and illuminating, all at the same time!  It seems so unlikely… yet somehow logical… and I certainly cannot argue the results when I test the movement.

One of the reasons I love the art(s) so much!

A moment of beauty.

Philosophy Tuesday

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.

The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions.

It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”

Martha Graham (Emphasis Mine)

 

Everyone is passionate about something.

When we listen closely, to our deepest authentic selves, we can feel it welling up, ready to burst free in glorious self-expression.

When we listen closely, from our deepest wonder, we can hear it singing in others, ready to grace the hills in its beauty.

When we remember that life and living life is itself an art, our avenues of expression grow even more.

And with the channel open, we get to share with the world.
