Power Switches Connected to Long Weekend

I would rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck
~ Our place is filled with flowers and now I need to act on Malchkeon's philosophy that time needs to slow down right now ;-) MMXIII AD

In this recent time of reordering our lives, we find one of our desires is to live more simply. Too much possessions and consumer thinking is the root of evil. Consumerism is a never-ending path. You never arrive anywhere, you just keep going and going! Meanwhile, your money does run out and time with loved ones runs out, too. Its strange to ask yourself, "What are the most basic things I want for my life?" For us two of those things are living more naturally and living more artfully. It seems those two things go hand-in-hand.

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up & get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part & a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you."
~ Chuck Close
