A Long Lost Letter From Your Innate Creative Self Let yourself go. Shake off inhibition and fear, and be yourself. Learn to think and act naturally, spontaneously; harmony and symmetry will enter your life, and you will discover your inherent talent. You are created by two human beings making love through the beat of their bodies. Then you learn how to launch your rocket ship off of your backyard to outer space. Everything starts as an image or idea in your head then it is later on fired by creativity. Then you enter the education system. Come back to wherever you are in this present moment. Hello again. Childhood was when you were the most ambitious and your dreams were the biggest. You created to manifest the vast realm of your imagination. You want to learn how to draw? The sad truth is we live in a society wherein they define and measure your value as a human being through the number of digits you have in your bank account. You need to break out of that bubble. Recognize the immensity of your existence on this planet.

Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world In October Rizzoli will be republishing what is regarded by many to be the strangest book in the world, the Codex Seraphinianus. The Codex is unlike other historically well-known strange books (such as the Voynich Manuscript), in that the author of the book is not only known (Luigi Serafini is his name), he’s still alive. But the book is just so damned strange that it has accumulated a veritable industry of speculation about its meaning, deeper origins, and whether the language in which it is written actually has any syntax or not. Serafini has said relatively little about it himself over the years, and denies that the script has any meaning, but no one really believes that, including me. Recently, however, I was finally in a place where my finances matched the book’s availability, so I got myself one, only finding out shortly thereafter that Rizzoli was putting out a new edition in October.
Man Builds $5,200 Hobbit House Last week, we saw a lodge in Chile that looked like a hobbit hotel and this week we bring you a woodland home with a similar aesthetic. Though this domain doesn't gush gallons of water, it is an alternative living space for a natural homestead. Photographer Simon Dale is responsible for the design and construction of this eco-home, despite his inexperience in architecture and carpentry. The 32-year-old photographer was tired of mortgage payments and had a passion for nature. Equipped with a chainsaw, hammer, and 1-inch chisel, the determined family man began construction on a plot of land in the woods, which the family luckily gained ownership of in return for their care of the area. The home, which was constructed for a grand total of £3,000 (approximately $5,200) features plenty of sustainable materials. Simon Dale's website via [Daily Mail]
