Two words…this view. This. View. For a lover of all things minimal, snowy, and mountainous (I am that person), this is the place. Place yourself (the daydream begins here) in front of that slender, expansive window, looking out into the immensity of that horizon, and clear away all of the…well, just clear it all away. Sit back and relax. Enjoy the view. And go get some coffee while you’re at it.
Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.
There is a distinct sense of bravery and exploration in children that we can all learn from. Check out this great piece from Egon Schiele.
Essential Egon is a weekly post dedicated to celebrating the work of a fearless artist who was capable of translating the colors of the human soul. Check him out.
Earth…what a beautiful creation. It has lived and breathed for eons, despite the often destructive eccentricities of humankind. Earth embodies a strength that is hard to quantify, but is easily felt. I think that, in today’s technologically advanced world, it’s all too easy to remain cooped up and locked behind walls, both literally and figuratively. Let’s open the doors, get out, and soak up as much of that natural strength as we can. Peace and blessings to all.
We’ve all been there; looking back on a time in our lives where, had we exerted just a little more effort, we would or could have accomplished some achieveable goal. And now we think to ourselves, “why didn’t I try harder?” It’s easy to end up in that predicament. Flip the concept on its head and let’s try to remember that we can control how much of ourselves that we put into any given goal. If we half ass a project, we will get half assed results. Go full blast? The sky’s the limit. Let’s not box ourselves into a life of stunted efforts…let’s give these days 101%. Because we CAN. Best of days today!
