...There is no sunlit meadow, no restful bower of easy sleep; there are rather swamplands of the soul where nature, our nature...is fashioned and forged, where we encounter not only the gravitas of life, but its purpose, its dignity, and its deepest meaning.
— James Hollis

3D & Design

Who doesn't love a good anthropomorphizing of objects while tinkering with materials, form and functionality? (or a lack thereof.)
