The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth (notice the capital “T”). The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value — it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions.
I went to the Newark museum in New Jersey, I’d say for the third or fourth time in the last three years. Anyway, I saw this beautiful piece of art. I figured why not record a video of it on my iPhone and make it something magical?
I’ve infused it with rain sounds. Stare at its colors, relax and enjoy. You’re welcome.
