    Last night we saw the transformative power of a super full moon, total lunar eclipse, Blood moon and full harvest moon. As humans we are truly fascinated by the moon, it brings a sense of calmness and just awe that you never thought existed. The blood moon is like no other, and possibly won’t happen again for another 18 years!

    “Fire is the ultra-living element. It is intimate and it is universal. It lives in our heart. It lives in the sky. It rises in the depth of the substance and offers itself with the warmth of love.”
    – Gaston Bachelard

    On the subject of moon, we thought it would be interesting to share this amazing creation by Taiwanese design firm Acorn Studio. Recently announced, this new lamp called ‘Luna’ mimics the color and shape of the moon. The serene piece illuminates every room with various light intensities and each lantern is handcrafted from glass fiber and latex. It’s even water resistant, heat resistant and crashworthy!




    Currently available via an Indiegogo fundraiser campaign, a great way to allow your children to explore the wonder and magic of the moon, we love it!

    There is a palpable sense of confusion and now anger. There is no coordinated efforts from the council to organise people or the thousands of donations coming in. It's chaotic. . . The community have taken the lead and are providing all the support and assistance. Police are stopping people without wristbands in certain areas. . Information is slow in coming through and families affected are starting to question what's going on. "17 dead, come on!" The media aren't reporting a lot of what has and is happening, like the Muslim boys returning home from Ramadan prayers who pushed past the police to get people out. . kids talking about where their friends are, and there are a very concerning number of kids missing from classrooms. A mother told us yesterday that it "simply doesn't make sense". . Our PM has announced a Public Inquiry, when in fact it's an INQUEST that is needed. The former is government lead and the latter gives a voice to the victims. . These people have been let down BEFORE, DURING and now AFTER this horrific incident. Is it because they're poor? It seems as though this is very much a class and race issue? Is it a tipping point? I hope so. . . #grenfelltowerfire #realheroes #glenfelltower #communitylove #change #togetherwecanmakeadifference #forthemanynotthefew #londonfire #londoner #london4all #thisislondon #londonist #speakout #justiceforall #latimerroad #northkensington #communityspirit #seektruth #equalityforall #inquestnotinquiry #endausterity #peopleoverprofit
