I grew up with plenty of adventure. Oftentimes I’d go hiking with my friends in thick forests, sometimes following a winding path to a river and at other times running downhill in search of blackberry bushes. Blackberry season was a favorite time of year. The berries were out of the world! We didn’t seem to mind the harsh thorns on those bushes. We’d bear all the pricks and scratches just to get to those delicious berries.
Years later, I moved to Phoenix, but I couldn’t stop dreaming about those berries. Then I met a proud old rancher. He looked more like a cowboy to me. I watched him work hard at his ranch- waking at the break of dawn, cleaning stables, welding fences, exercising his horses and so on. He too seemed to bear all the workload just to see the fruits of his love—happy horses. I must admit my lack of passion for horses even though, back in the day, my mother had won many championships. But I do admire the old cowboy, for he looks past his daily problems and simply enjoys his passion.
One of my favorite cereals is the classic Honey Bunches of Oats with almonds, but you’ll still find me standing in front of a barricade of cereals at some supermarket, trying to figure out if I want to try something new. And you know what? After much thought, I still end up buying the same old cereal or two.
Recently, I scanned through a cook book and found plenty of good dishes to try out. Nearly every page had an exotic recipe with a great photo. And guess what? I still end up favoring those few tried dishes that always seem to hit the right spot. It isn’t to say that I don’t try new dishes, but maybe it’s about practicing restraint instead of indulging in the luxury of choices. Read More
As we enter into the age of 3D printers, imagine the possibilities of bringing imagination into reality! The world’s first color multi-material 3D printer can’t be too far from reaching our homes, and Stratasys, the makers of the printer seem to agree on the amazing capabilities of the human mind.
“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves,” says Stratasys, quoting Edison.
The human mind is capable of generating a tremendous amount of matter- whether through mechanical mediums like printers and machines, software programs or through chemical reactions within the body. While the human mind can really be a source of beautiful creations, most of us are unaware of matter being created within us without our knowledge. We are unaware that the reaction of our mind actually creates subtle matter within ourselves. Read More
