Creating A Place Of Order & Enlightenment
Thank you ‘G’, for grey skies & heavy rains yesterday. I used the free time to start setting up a room for Bug…My 9 year old niece who has a passion for storytelling, art, science, dinosaurs & wolves!
***Check out the MOSH for the ‘Unearthed Dinosaur’ Exhibit going on until September***
In the midst of making neater piles out of disordered papers & miscellaneous things, I uncovered the vintage, never-been-used, Winsor & Newton oil paint set J’s amazing sister gave me one year for Christmas.
In our townhouse, there is a loft that seperates the two bedrooms on the second floor. I’ve dreamed of the loft becoming my library/office for quite some time & speaking of time, it’s here.
Right now, it’s more of a storage unit with books, an heirloom antique sofa from J’s family, an Ethan Allen loveseat that belonged to my grandparents, glass coffee table, boxes of stuff & my glass dining room table!
So this is always a challenge for anyone…
There is a great focus on minimalism today & I certainly agree with the philosophy of living with as little as possible.
By the way…I mention John Ruskin & William Morris frequently because their views on art, industry & economics are invigorating. Click on their last name to view a short video called ‘POLITICAL THEORY‘ by The School Of Life channel on Youtube.
Have a great 4th of July weekend & think on what it means to have this beautiful thing called ‘Independence’.
It’s something we need to always & continually fight for.
God, please, bless America for those who still love her.
