The Amazon Sculpture
Inspiration
The French artist Prune Nourry created this work in response to her experience with breast cancer, and as a tribute to survivors everywhere. The Amazon, a 13-foot concrete sculpture, is at the Standard Hotel, High Line, NYC until the end of June. Go see it if you can!

As a breast cancer survivor myself (23 years!) and a woman, I find this work so powerful.

Kitchen Storage
Green Design & Mindful Living
A large part of kitchen design is eliminating clutter and visual chaos by planning ahead for smart storage and organization. When your stuff is organized, it's more accessible and you are less stressed. You don't waste time looking for that thing. You won't buy a 3rd Cumin because you can easily find the 1st one. Aaaaah!
