In the words of my early beloved Lauryn Hill, “it could all be so simple, but you’d rather make it hard…”. This is what I need to make my daily reminder, NEED TO. #live #work #create #workisnotajob #dogood #exfactor #dowhatyoulove Have a GOOD day y’all.

Spring Forest

by Francesco Draisci

Like giant poppy flowers (3.5m), a surreal red and pink forest of thin poles topped by 100 umbrellas, marked an urban-green spot (5m x 10m) in St James’ Church Garden in Clerkenwell, offering shaded comfort, away from the city frantic pace.Symbolising urban transformation and the awakening of spring, red foam-clad scaffolding components formed a glamorous example of reversible public environment.”
