Looking Forward

Sometimes events in the world make it difficult to feel positive about the future. I'm a firm believer in trying to make the best of it though, and, when all else fails, at least looking forward to something that is a positive force.

In the spirit of looking (way) forward, Future Library, is a 100-year project by Norwegian artist Katie Paterson. I first heard about this amazing project last year from Make:. "A thousand trees have been planted in Nordmarka, a forest just outside Oslo, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished, until 2114."

The project pulls together so many elements that are important to me: art, reading, paper, nature, and collaboration. Not to mention leaving a positive legacy...such an inspiration. Find and celebrate what inspires you.
