Beautiful Old Factory

Today I celebrate the Oreo cookie not because
I like the cookie so much but I do love design
and history. Today I did some internet stumbling
and came upon these great images of the design
of the old Oreo Cookie factory in New York.
Sometimes I do wish I lived closer to NYC
to experience some of this first hand but suffice
to say I’ll enjoy the ‘ol factory thanks to
the talents of PATTIBUM.

The first Oreo cookie was made in 1912 at
the original Nabisco bakery in NYC which
is today the Chelsea Market.

Beautiful Meditation

Rest is something that can be captured as form
of meditation, 
or a day-dream, the idea of slowing
down and taking notice 
of the present, re-store,
a point of re-envisioning challenges

and looking at them with intent.

Rest isn’t only a stop, it’s a place on a journey.
An “intermission of labor, mental peace.”
That quiet stance of contemplation,
being in that place, a sentinel, an observant.

Rest, Respite.
Restore, renew.
To look again. To see anew.
