The Monster Chair by Marcel Wanders
As part of a portfolio for his design company Moooi, Marcel created these quilted monster-faced leather chairs, complete with sofas and barstools that are considerably less scary looking. While it’s not the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen, I nonetheless dont like the feeling that my chair might be looking at me, as I’m already paranoid the furniture in my house is watching and silently judging me.

Tickled creativity lends to birthed ideas within the mind. Like gloriously spewed laughter, the tickled creativity responds.
As such , this video does indeed tickle and whet the appetite and calm the senses.
I have dreamed a dream
With my waking eyes
That you would love me,
That you would hold me here.
I have seen a dream with my waking heart
Of who you are;
I have known,
And beg to believe that I am not wrong.
I have seen those eyes,
With a heart that awoke.
These eyes saw them,
The need, acceptance, subtle joy.
I saw a stream
Which we are,
Far less disjointed than the reality that faces me;
Intertwined and smooth
Like surfing waves upon waves
That tumble and glide on each other –
No space but their mesh
That always reminds me of being ones self.
Surf the wave, this is how I have seen it – to live and to live well
-here now 2 waves surf each other.
Now those eyes I see to bring me sadness
And confusion for the times we meet.
They remind me ever so, that those eyes do not exist but could.
If they could they do.
They do –
In some future distance that might never be, but always is, as long as I see it.
We are not 2 waves, but those that clash – not to smash
But swirl in our angled cross.
You are the one who’s heart I have seen
And loved. I have felt and felt it bright.
I have known in myself that this vision is true
Every night and every day, except when we meet.
Then if it is true, then it will lead,
If not to you, then to me. It will lead me to truth.
I cannot help the sadness that I cannot see the longing in your eyes.

I am love.
Peace is my step
and joy is found within my voice.
Truth is my language, my search, my hope.
I am love,
with peace in every breath
like the still sea that surrounds me;
full of life, this is the world within me.
Love, forever I am,
on this journey knowing truth
with much more yet to come
that always was.
