If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

Meret Oppenheim, Object, 1936, fur-covered cup, saucer and spoon, 27.3 x 7.3 cm, MoMA, New York. Source
The MoMA online states that Object was born out of a conversation between Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar. The three were in a Parisian cafe when Picasso commented on Oppenheim’s bracelet, which was wrapped in a layer of fur. Oppenheim replied by suggesting that all objects can be decorated in this way, and she went on to create this Chinese-gazelle-covered tea set for a Surrealist exhibition. The sweet, little symbol of polite, feminine socialisation becomes highly sexualised and invitingly strokeable. Good word.
