QOTD: … the chance to work hard at work worth doing

“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

time lapse video of creating and destroying a masterpiece

Monday, May 14th, 2007

This is an awesome video by the IndyStar.

Basically, they time lapse monks creating a sand mandala, which is beautiful and full of intricacies, over three days. At the end, they destroy it. The music it’s set to also works well. It helps give it an upbeat, constantly moving feeling, while still sounding traditional (not sure if it is?) enough to work with the subject.

This video makes the point about impermanence so much more real because I can see in a few minutes just how much work went into creating the masterpiece and also how quickly it could be wiped away.
