artful resolutions : waste ponds & swimming pools

i love a good bird’s eye view. truly, i guess i’ve always wanted to fly, hence my obsession with the angle. one curious mind that has a common love is Jenny Odell, found via my 20×200 subscription. she’s taken a number of different subjects, found their satellite views via Google, and has combined these fragments into beautiful patterns that i am absolutely swooning over! check out two for a little new year inspiration…

1. i will remember that my waste (whether the gross kind, mangled garbage kind, or even verbal/mental kind- yep- we’re talking karma) ends up somewhere. it doesn’t just magically disappear from my home…

2. i will swim more this year, for my health, for my chakra balance, and for my inner calm. i have been swimming all my life until i moved to Boulder, Colorado 4 years ago, so this will be my year to find a way to flounder around. look closely and you’ll see little swimming pools with little palm tree shadows!
