“Life can be painful if you do it right. To wish to forget the hope because it wasn’t realised, to try to cleanse your mind of the beautiful dream because it didn’t come true, is to miss out on life altogether, because life is designed to be lived in an alternation of hours of sunlight and darkness.”
— Harold Kushner
I love this work by German artist, Anna Schuleit who filled four floors of an abandoned psychiatric hospital with 28,000 potted plants. The installation, entitled Bloom, is such a hunting, human work that contrasts all that’s dark and troubled with hope.
Hello from my bed. While I wait for the galleries to open today, I thought I would share this incredible project by Hermès.
Because I forgive you, yes, for everything.
I forgive you for being beautiful and generous and wise,
“Think pink! Think pink when you shop for summer clothes. Think pink! Think pink if you want that quelque chose. Red is dead, blue is through, green’s obscene, brown’s taboo. And there’s not the slightest excuse for plum or puce—or chartreuse. Think pink! Forget that Dior says black and rust. Think pink! Who cares if the New Look has no bust. Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman what a woman oughta think, but tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink!“
