Put your defense downWaiting On The Light To Change by Matthew Perryman Jones
Open up your heart and lay
All of it out
I know how hard it sounds
But loneliness will have its way
In feeding your doubts
Driving along a highway. At hundred twenty. It feels like god is watching you. The auto – buck naked – it’s only the chassis, the steering wheel, the seat, and you. You feel invulnerable in that speed because you see the rain speckles streak upwards yet you don’t feel the violent current of air that you’re piercing into.We Stop and Go

What has been your most notable rebel accomplishment or experience?
The user interface team at Chikka has managed to incorporate a vital step in the design process. Before, sketches and wire frames were sidestepped in the process of developing web products. Now we have shared the knowledge with product developers that those are important in every project.
I saw what you did there. The padding between form fields is 24 pixels. Please remove 8 pixels from that gap. Make sure to use the components provided.Chief of Pixel Police
Well… yeah… it’s your fault. Components are ready-built — why can’t you just use it with all its pre-built goodnes. Why take matters into your own hands and decide 24 pixels here and 32 pixels there. Don’t ever do that next time. If you do, make sure to just move 1 pixel at a time to avoid detection. My brain whispered to me.
Can sarcasm be used for fun? Sure can! Actually, I don’t have any beef in using components, no matter how they scream for adjustments. But, hey, we are designers. We design — that’s what we do. We take, we break, and make it new again, in a different light. Better, I hope.
First: stop. Pause. Take a deep breath. Look around. What do you notice? Are you experiencing this moment with someone else? Remember that this moment only comes once. Photography can be part of a beautiful experience. Just don’t let it be a block between you and reality. Be intentional, and don’t lose a beautiful, irreplaceable memory, because you were too focused on getting the shot.Erin Sullivan in Does photographing a moment steal the experience from you?
