Why do we spend most of our lives trying to be somebody we’re not?
What would you do if you were provided with an empty 5 storey building for 6 months? Re:THINK - a project recently hosted in London by 3Space - took on that challenge with impressive results. We had a chat with the organisers about their work.
*edit - this is clearly a 7 storey building! It didn’t seem that big when I held my sustainable streets workshop there! - Joe
I wouldn’t know where to start.
You don’t own the sadness son. See the tide just comes in. Guilt is played on the violin by those who never cared to sing.

The best writers are those who know pain.
Those who know joy,
Those who have loved,
And still know it’s better than never loving at all.
Those who can smile,
Those with memories,
And most of all those with passion,
Because you know they’ll take all their pain,
And turn it into something beautiful.
We often hear people say hang on. I think that works not because things get better next, but it is because we get better first. So if we hang on and not work at improving, we probably will be hanging for very long with little or no change to the situation.
But it doesn’t do you any good unless at some point, you wake up and make the dream a reality.
A soft hand that warmly touches my neck, while the heel of my palm massages the space between my brows.
The comfort of her love runs through as fingers up my uncombed hair, and I lean towards her heaving chest.
I know I’m in safe arms, no matter how the world fires its arsenal at me.
And alas I awake to accept that the only hand caressing my head is my own.
And those fiery darts, they continue to pierce my flesh.

It’s so much easier when I can finally draw directly on my screen.
I’m sorry, folks.
You know you have been pwned by a game when you philosophize with it.
