Day 18 – Quote 5

World is the pattern of meaningful relations in which a person exists and in the design of which he or she participates. World is interrelated with the person at every moment. A continual dialectical process goes on between world and self and world; one implies the other and neither can be understood if we omit the other.

Rollo May

Day 26 – Quote 4

Whenever I walk, my body is interrelated with the world in which and on which I take my steps. The earth rises infinitesimally to meet my step as I walk. The balance essential in walking is one that is not solely in our body; it can be understood only in relation to the ground on which it stands and walks. The rhythm of my walking depends on my faith that’s the earth will be there.

Rollo May

Day 29 – Brené Brown

I find the work of researcher/storyteller Brené Brown the most inspiring and intriguing work in the field of social psychology. Her TED talk made me feel my thesis direction was valid and it helped me a great deal with putting together my proposal. Now that I’ve spent about a month just doing experiments and sketches I’ve decided to revisit her work. Its just as inspiring and incredible as it was the first time I heard it.

Day 31 – Quote 03

As our numbers swell you’d think we we’d feel a greater sense of belonging, everywhere, to everyone. But there are so many of us, more than we can ever know in a life time, we end up feeling like we belong no where, to no one. We can move among multitudes, and feel isolated and alone. We live unique, private lives of hope and self interest.
