boats, an article, and a haiku




It's such a pretty morning here - cold for fall (enough to wear sweaters, which is shocking for our part of California this time of year) and overcast. The baby is asleep, the three year old is at school, and I am going to paint. But first, let me share with you a haiku my husband composed the other night before falling asleep about our day:

Today he blew-dry
her urine-soaked ballet dress
with a hair dryer

Awesome.

Also great (perhaps, dare I say, even more profound than that?) is this David Brooks article - food for thought.

Indeed an awesome haiku, and thank you for sharing the link, without a doubt the era of excess is giving way to sensibility and sustainability! Or at least we can hope.

That is such a lovely mobile, where is it from?

Awesome haiku too :)

hi kimberly - thanks for the haiku props!

mobile info - it's from a danish company called flensted. google flensted viking mobile, and it pops up all over in internet shops.

Lynne: Thanks for sharing the article as well. So thoughtful and well-written. I think we're all feeling the desire to simplify.

I like the mobile! and the haiku :-)

Just when we simplify the pendulum will swing again. That is why we should not live in extremes...
