Jordan Matter Photography was an inspiration of mine whilst chairing a leadership conference in Germany earlier this year. His book is now available; let it inspire you as it did with me. A must-have for those of you who cherish the simplicities of life; are passionate about creating and dancing to your rhythm of life and sharing that with others around you; or, somehow have forgotten there is ample beauty in this world. In everything we do, there is a dancer within us.— “Dancers are storytellers trained to capture passion with their bodies. They often create a fantasy world or offer us a deeper look into familiar settings. They bring to life what we feel but what most of us, lacking their artistry and athleticism are unable to express physically.” #jordanmatter #photography #dreams #lifebeginsoutsideyourcomfortzone #leadership (at Indigo)

Mappamondo Alighiero Boetti (Italian, 1940–1994)

"From the early 1970s until shortly before his death, Boetti worked with Afghan weavers and weavers in exile to produce rug-sized embroidered maps of the world, each country picked out in the colours of its national flag. You can see the appeal for a man obsessed with metaphors: a globe represented as a rectangle, land masses by shapes, geopolitics by symbolic colours and patterns which changed as countries became independent or were occupied or embroiled in civil war.  

So many systems, so much representation. And yet what strikes you about the Mappe is their imprecision, the way that human frailty inevitably wins out over the human drive to exactitude. In one map, the sea is unexpectedly coloured pink rather than blue. Landlocked Afghans had no tradition of mapping, certainly not of oceans. Having never seen the sea, they saw no good reason why it should be stitched in blue rather than pink, the latter dye being cheaper and more plentiful than the former. Boetti, reportedly, was delighted.”

Denmark with Copenhagen, Norway with Oslo, Sweden with Stockholm in the distance, northern Germany and beyond. And the Aurora Borealis of course.

Did you know? It took Eduardo 10 games, Henry 8, Van Persie 4 & Kanu 3 to score their first #Arsenal goal [via @playupfootball] #AFC

Poldi and Carloza broke the ice for the new Gunners.  Giroud only a matter of time.

Edwin Encarnacion — hitting his 37th; a mammoth shot to left-centre — continues torrid career-best HR and RBI pace, despite an injury-decimated 2012 season for the Blue Jays.

Looking forward to seeing EE reach 40HR/100RBIs!

In other developments, Washington Nationals, as of today, leading the National League East by 6.5 games with only 29 games left!

How awesome would it have been if the Nats were still the Montreal Expos?
