Highly imaginative and, perhaps more to the point, playful: art that engages and gets us to look at something in a new way, in this instance “junk,” is entertaining, instructive and inspirational. Great work, Ann Smith.

This magazine sample was a great experience. In just the time it took to reveiw the content, i felt as if I’d had a real time class on changes in the world. Live magazine is awesome. I must add, it also gave me a great idea. i want a wall mural for my bedroom. From time to time I shut myself away. Vipassanna is the way to go, though my meditation hasn’t separated me for more than a day. My method is different in the fact that I use spiritual music. This is usually instrumental, and in very low tones. Thanks, for the experience.
