DESIGN: Submerged Turntable by Evan Holm

Artist Evan Holm is convinced that ‘there will be a time when all tracings of human culture will dissolve back into the soil under the slow crush of the unfolding universe’. 

To demonstrate these rather dark thoughts, he created a submerged record player that’s still producing a nearly perfect audio as demonstrated in the short video below.

I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. “Don’t you leave him Samwise Gamgee.” And I don’t mean to. I don’t mean to.

As we practice mindfulness, we discover a natural sense of equanimity toward whatever is occurring in each moment. What arises is not negotiable; how we choose to respond to it is. In each moment, we have the opportunity to choose whether to meet our circumstances with acceptance or resistance.

Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life by Charlotte Bell
This is a great read for any practicing yogi. Bell, a yoga teacher, makes Pantanjali’s eightfold path accessible to any practitioner (and any non-asana practitioner who’s looking for a bit of philosophy, although I wouldn’t recommend this as a first choice for a non-asana practitioner). There are many nuggets of goodness in this read, some that affected the current moment as I was reading, and some that will affect my asana practice for years to come.A yogini friend recommended this read to me, and I’m glad she did. I’ll readily recommend it to those looking to learn more about the teachings of Pantanjali and the Buddha, and how we can apply their lessons to our lives today.
