Been a while -- one of my favorite quotes to reflect to

From the moment they wake they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue. I have never seem such discipline.
- The Last Samurai (movie)

When Johann first showed me the levitating girl, I was spellbound.  She's a Japanese girl (who doesn't levitate, really) but jumps beautifully and takes a picture of herself ... jumping.

Her pictures are beautiful and tell such quirky stories -- when I look at them, I try to imagine that moment when her camera is set and she only has a few seconds to find the courage to jump (she does this sometimes in a public place) -- and I think about the people who are there and I wonder about what they are thinking.



Then I found this feature on Yahoo about an artist who makes very small sculptures and leaves them out in the public for people to discover.
