Handmade: Leica M

Here’s a very insightful video on the creation of the Leica M Camera. This video also shows the Leica factory and what the camera building process looks like.

I love seeing how Leica really takes craftsmanship to the next level for each of their products. Every worker in the factory puts so much attention to detail–everything is hand made!

Please enjoy.

Dear Family, I came across this beautiful poem and thought of sharing it with you in hope of spreading the Love.

Eternal.

I’m here to share a secret;

I am not who I’ve always been,

The world that lies outstretched before me,

Is not the only one I’ve seen,

I’ve travelled on the tails of comets,

I’ve burned up in the hearts of stars,

I’ve been spat out of supernovas,

That left me scattered near and far,

I have dined in distant galaxies,

And taught the birds to sing,

I’ve danced for a whole lifetime,

Upon Saturn’s dusty rings,

I’ve been here for long enough,

To learn what makes the willow weep,

I’ve sung celestial lullabies,

That sent the moon to sleep,

I’ve been both the flowing water,

And the stone that blocks its way,

I’ve been frozen, I’ve been molten,

And I’ll be again someday,

Though I’ve been a billion things,

This is the first one that can smile,

I’m pieces of the universe,

Living as human for a while.

Beautiful text I'd love to share from our dearest mentor Dr. Habib Sadeghi on Instagram:

"Family, from a deeper place of humility caresharing what our beloved  @lbreggy posted today: “Every morning I start my day off by reading a page or 2 in a few inspirational books.

Today’s reading was “Within” by my dear friend, holistic doctor and spiritual teacher @drhabibsadeghi . I love what he wrote and wanted to share with you all for some #wenesday #humpday #motivation 🙌 “We learn half of what we need from our success and the other half from our failures. What we learn from our most recent failure only leads to the next success.

Thomas Edison failed 1,000 times before he was successful in creating the light bulb. He would later say the he didn’t fail 1,000 times. Inventing the light bulb had 1,000 steps. Interesting perspective. Knowing what doesn’t work is just as important as knowing what does. Mistakes are good they point us in a whole new direction. How many walls will a mouse run into before he finally exits the maze? If it weren’t for the road blocks he would never have found the way out.

Perfectionism holds us back. It makes us apprehensive and afraid to take chances because it might not turn out the way we want it to. Ultimately, our life becomes stuck and we don’t move forward. A life lived in fear is a life half lived. The Rev. Robert Schiller said it best when he said, “Its better to do something imperfectly than nothing perfectly.” NBA superstar Michael Jordan also knew the perfection of being imperfect when he said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” 🙏
