Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Belgian design studio Unfold created this fantastically oversized plush cat sculpture as part of a cat-themed art installation entitled Felix Domesticus.
It was one of 5 cat-themed elements of an art installation that the studio assembled in 2010. The 3.5-meter long cat fills an apartment master bedroom. Visitors to the exhibit could sit on it for what Unfold calls “sweet revenge.”
It may be time to consider replacing the conference table here at Geyser of Awesome headquarters. Although there would be a slight risk of dozing off for anyone who happened to sit in a sunny spot, this awesome lounging kitty looks like an amazing place to hold our creativity meetings.

Your job is to see people as they really are, and to do this, you have to know who you are in the most compassionate possible sense. Then you can recognize others.

These itsy-bitsy wonders are the work of Tokyo-based artist and architectural model maker Akinobu Izumi and are part of an ongoing series entitled Tiny World in a Bottle. “Using intricately cut paper, little pieces of cork and, when necessary, liquid paraffin for a floating effect, he fills thumb-size bottles with creatures, ships and curious scenes.”
Akinobu Izumi sells a variety of these miniature works of art in his Etsy shop.

The moon has disappeared and it has rained pennies for three straight weeks. The pennies disappear as soon as they hit the pavement. Whose New York City is this?
