Though our lives are full of ups and downs, they are also like a symphony playing out over time. Different instruments, melodies, and rhythms come and go at particular moments. Living in the present requires a conductor’s state of mind to properly guide the musicians and maintain the rhythm of the symphony. Conductors can’t think about the past or future, they live in the present moment.
This issue of Magnifissance is dedicated to harmonizing the symphony of our lives with guidance from designers, artists, entrepreneurs, traditional Chinese doctors, and etc. They have all found their own paths to refining and appreciating their daily experiences of beauty.
