creative morning

since I came to chicago i have been trying to get tickets to the hottest creative act Creative Mornings–it finally happened. i was able to hear the very exceptional Raun Meyn, who creates wonderful pieces of art with reclaimed wood. he spoke of his journey from simple framer at craft stores, progressing to his own store and gaining control over what he makes. his store Found:Re creates furniture, framing and other wondrous wood creations (check him out)! the two most memorable thoughts…

“Awareness is the technique for centering oneself for achieving the inner fire”  – Gurdjieff
