Weekly Photo Challenge: Order

                  The Paradox of Order



      When we all dream of a place, do we think of all things being streamlined and seamlessly flawless? How dreary would that be? I think the beauty of nature and humanity is that we carry imperfections in every bit of  orderliness. 

Counting Steps, TULUM, 2016

Organize your life around your dreams and watch them come true.

          We perceive that tidiness and order commensurate to divinity, and rightly so. We expect perfection, yet sometimes, all we may pursue is excellence.

Tivoli Travertine by Meir , Getty Center, 2016

           One example of a masterpiece with precision that I am a great fan of, is the Getty Museum, situated atop the busiest freeway of the ubiquitously famous 405 in Los Angeles.

The Getty Museum is designed by Richard Meir, who arduously perfected the use of travertine marble in this architectural beauty. Imported from the quarries of Tivoli in Italy, ( http://www.getty.edu) the marble stone’s fluid design is patterned after the surrounding hills, slopes which is just so precisely accomplished with lots of Beige color and linear order. Stunning is a subtle description for it, absolutely brilliant!

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
