Current project

I'm currently working in the remodeling of a wholesale footwear showroom. Because most of the colors of the shoes they sell are dark, we choose a light wall color and shelving and kept everything very simple and minimalist to make the shoes the focal point. I added storage furniture and move the computer away from the focal point of the room to a nook behind a column. The upper shelves will display boots and taller shoes and the upper part of the storage furniture on the bottom the flip flops and ballet flats.
The best part.... the shoes I got yesterday.

We have to believe its possible

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let our bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Kahlil Gibran.
