We all consume. We simple must in order to survive. But we can have a better quality of life when we mindfully consume. I believe that we can have less when we choose to have better, and that in so doing, we actually have more of what matters most in the end.
I think everyone in symphony hall literally stopped breathing as this performance came to an end. Denève held the hall in complete silence for at least a minute as the last sound faded from this earth. I was slane.
We now collect so many photos and so much video with our smartphones, yet we don’t have the time to create interesting content with that media. This app is designed to address that issue. So, in a matter of minutes, here is what it did from media I shot yesterday.
