Print This Out, Put It Up, Change Your Life
Two themes in my life lately have converged in such a way that this poster, designed by 20-something student Francesca Ramos,is exactly the perfect thing at the perfect time: a dry spell that has me searching for direction--and the arrival of a new desk. The desk is an traditional secretary, a workspace full of nooks and crannies begging for inspirational objects and talismans -- physical ones, not just lovely images and quotes accumulated in cyber-space. And the wall above it needs a poster. It needs a beautiful poster. It needs a poster that will inspire me, and not in a cat-on-a-tree "Hang in there" kind of way. It needs...Gandhi.
Gandhi's Ten Fundamentals for Changing the World are an utterly inspiring source of the quiet wisdom everyone's favorite pacifist was known for. "Take care of this moment," I need Gandhi to tell me every morning. Don't you? "Continue to grow and evolve," he reminds us."Persist." He may have been trying to change the world, and I'm trying to get through the day without damaging anyone, but I don't know, maybe those goals have more in common than I ever realized.
