The Art of Liwei

This photo, Zooey Deschanel who wears the best clothes and has the most enviable hair ever which sadly my total lack of fashion know how cannot match.

And when you google the word horizons you get lots of naff pictures. Mostly of beaches and sunsets. The real thing is something else, however it seems that it’s a rare photo that can do a sunset (or a beach) justice and a rarer one still that should ever be framed. So for the sake of literal illustration here’s a variation of the U2 No Horizons cover, which is not naff at all, quite beautiful infact.

Why horizons anyway? Well if we want to wrap the cliche baby up nicely and wave it like a flag then it’s only fair to use it in the blog title. What else is there to say, but:

I just applied for a design job.

Blogging Cooking Post of the Day

You’ve got a vision of some far off day, beautiful and bright
A carrot hanging out of reach, but always in your sight
There’s an icon in your mind that stands for happiness one day
A picture on some wall of a kingdom far away

Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s breathing in between
Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s right under your feet

The sky is much more blue and the clouds are always white
The streets of course are gold and always lit with rings of light
There’s nothing on this earth that’s as good as what’s up there
And life is so much better when you’re floating in the air

Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s breathing in between
Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s right under your feet

Forget about your brother if he doesn’t seem to understand
The heaven you’ve concocted in your head
And never mind your sister when she asks you silly questions
About all the broken people left unfed
Burning questions are better left for dead

You spend your life inside a box looking through stained glass
And dream about a better day and hope it finds you fast

Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s breathing in between
Oh, it’s closer than you think
Oh, it’s right under your feet
Oh, it’s right under your feet
Oh, it’s right under your feet

I found this song really interesting – ignoring the slightly lazy rhymes (collaboration between Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman and a Nickle Creek guy: from Fiction Family). This song seems quite pointed toward a certain Christian worldview, with a life focused on a heaven you only reach when you die. This view no longer (and hasn’t for a long time) makes any sense to me, the Kingdom of God/Kingdom of Heaven is here but not in it’s fullness. This naturally throws up lots of interesting possibilities re. heaven.
