The Eight Principles of fun starts is a light hearted look at some very important principals that not only make life fun, but enhance thinking and living creatively.
I love lists like this so I am sharing this before the weekend in order to have some fun!
The Book of Kells in its entirety
can be viewed online as part of the Trinity College Library’s digital collection. We were lucky enough to see it was exhibited at the National Gallery when it came to Australia, but I have been enjoying quietly browsing it online.
The pages are photographed at a very high resolution so you can zoom right in and closely examine the designs. I love the complexity of the patterning. Of course there is the main imagery but I keep noticing the little areas of decoration tucked in corners or in little out of the way area and marvelling at it. I just had to share!
There is also a new iPad
app of the Book of Kells for folks with a tablet
This short video is great reminder to pay attention to the important things in life every day. I hope people enjoy me sharing it.
