Design A Day, Influences, New work

A Design a Day – Day 147

Tonight’s design, the last in my “Gate B3” series, is also a fitting reminder since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner:

In the spirit of reaching out to those we love and care about, I wanted to take the opportunity to call my reader’s attention to a wonderful blog post by Chris Guillebeau entitled The Smallest Man Builds Cages for Everyone.  Sometimes we all need the reminder that true empowerment comes from helping others.  In his post, Chris quotes Hafiz, a Sufi poet from the 14th century, saying:

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
He
Knows.
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.

I plan to keep trying to drop more keys and build less cages, and along the way I’ll keep posting my vision of beauty for all to enjoy!
