About the book
In history 2020 will surely go down as the year ‘where nothing went according to plan’!
On a worldwide scale, a pandemic of uncertainty, immeasurable morbidity, and an ominous pause. The world was put on mute! Like the rest of the world, Frank and Charmaine had exhilarating plans, carefully crafted itineraries, and ambitious dreams. Then a very sudden fullstop.
In this strange time of restrictions, the only freedom they found was in sharing daily encouragements, inspirations, and positive observations. With 10 000km between Bremen, where Frank lives, and Botrivier, Charmaine’s home, the only means to share these moments were through daily pictures captured.
In the words of Nobel Peace winner Elie Wiesel, “even in darkness it is possible to create light and encourage compassion.” This little coffee table book is a hopeful reminder of how humans can support each other despite circumstances or distance; of the shared sacrifices that connected us to each other as well as our larger communities.
We have collected the thoughts and ideas that accompanied our
days during Spring and Summer 2020.
Content of the book
Our thoughts and ideas needed some order:
The act of looking at something from all sides, then pausing to allow the answer to present itself.
Thinking deeply about information, situations or concepts. Mining the meaning of daily thoughts, and one's beliefs around them. According to Plato, the soul ascends to knowledge of the Divine through contemplation.
The increase in microscopic organisms that starts the process of something enlarging in size.
An act or process that supports development.
When growing stops, regression starts.
The result of organising and applying the senses to find an explanation.
The use of intuition to gain insight and understanding.
We adjust our perception according to our emotions, motivations and experiences.
The state of confidently expecting a positive outcome in life, or for the world.
Hope is the most valuable attraction in life.
Hope is the promise of a better future.
And these numbers express the project in a special way...
