Day 366 – Last Day of the Year

December 31, 2012

Holiday reading


“The aim of art is not to represent the outer reality of things, but the inner significance of things.” (Aristotle)

When I started this photo-project a year ago, I was looking for something creative, something challenging, something inspiring, something that would help me learn and grow. This project ended up being a crash-course in psychology, mindfulness, virtues, art of happiness, art of loving, the art of facing and overcoming one’s fears and anxieties, not to mention a course in photography.

Thank you to everyone who followed me along this project and everyone who inspired me to take better photos and read better books and be a better friend!

Happy New Year!

“On average, successful people have had many more failures than unsuccessful people. This seems counter-intuitive. How could Successful people have failed more often than everyone else? Failure is unavoidable and sometimes happens randomly. It’s what you do after the failure that is important. Successful people have a stick-to-itiveness, they don’t quit.” (Daniel J. Levitin, This is Your Brain on Music, 2007)
