This video absolutely blew me away… Sure, John Mayer is a great musician, and the artwork for his latest album is gorgeous, but keep watching — after you learn all about the thought that went into it, learn about the craft.

He specializes in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. You have to watch to understand what goes into his art. Grab some popcorn and enjoy!

I can relate to Nicholas and his findings — the internet has a profound change on how we approach everything, and even on our basic level of patience. It’s creating a world of instant gratification and even I find myself to be impatient at times. What do you mean we have to wait for it to be shipped? I want in now, with just one click. But, Nicholas also talks about a more simple concept — our ability to concentrate on any one thing for a longer period of time. To lose that ability could change everything.
