Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Music Monday! Every Painting in the MoMa.

Love Art? Don't have time to go to a Gallery? Try this - a 2 minute and 5 second tour through every painting on display from the painting galleries in the MoMA on April 10, 2010. (from chrspck on YouTube -
 It is set to the piano solo "Mad Rush," by Philip Glass, which is a nice compliment to the eclectic mix of paintings you will see. It goes rather quickly, but gives a nice taste of everything there is, and you can pause whenever you like to fully enjoy the pieces you like.  This was mentioned in the latest Real Simple Magazine (my favorite), and once I checked it out, I knew my Music Monday followers would really appreciate this.

It doesn't replace the experience of actually visiting the MoMA, someday I hope to know what that feels like, but it sure does bring a taste of the wonderful things on display, and brings a yearning to visit a local art museum.

That is something we should all do this summer to get out of the heat (100 degrees in June in some places!), take a break from the sun (we don't need anymore sunburn!), and to let the kids experience something other than texts, movies they have seen over and over on cable, playing video games, etc.

Enjoy this montage of creativity from everywhere and every time! I did, and will again, then I will see what art exhibits are going on at local galleries.
