"Shock is good"
- Marcel Duchamp

The shock of 1913:
Suffragettes in NYC, Coco Chanel's cutting of corset laces, Igor Stravinsky's atonal compositions, Kasimir Malevich's Woman with Pails: Dynamic Arrangement

If the changes happening in my life are any indication, 2013 is going to be an incredible year.

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke
