Project Athena - Day 1 (Negative Space)

Welcome to the Launch of Project Athena!

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
— Rumi

Negative Space is a beautiful theme and metaphor to launch Project Athena. It is so often in life that I do not recognize the abundance, love, happiness, and gifts that are already here until I move my focus from the noise surrounding me (the negative space) to the love that my heart is truly experiencing (the positive space.) In other words, sometimes, negative space helps define and emphasize the positive space in my life.

In a photograph or design, negative space provides "breathing room". It gives my eyes somewhere to rest and allows my mind to relax by eliminating unnecessary clutter.

All of this adds up to a more interesting life and more compelling composition.

Smile. See the world in a new way.
