Truly, our world is astonishing! The photos are remarkable! And yes, i did enjoy the video too freda...i’m smiling a bit, because it seems that i am always working towards that “click” point, where everything will, at least, be orderly and attractive on “the shelves of my life”...but then what will i do with my time???? I suspect i’ll start decluttering again! It seems to me that even thought we oftn resist change (esp the change we do not want!), we also almost daily find something we want to change!
Julia life will always throw something new at us to fill up our time! Meanwhile I feel the need to change my favourite shelf coming on...
One of my friends (in his early 80s, an artist with many ongoing projects) once when feeling overwhelmed by his commitments, said to me, in seriousness "Life! Honestly! It's just one thing after another!"
A macro lens captures amazing details--just goes to show how much of life we actually miss.
After looking at the second video, I must say that my most of my bookshelves are the antithesis of stylish. :) So be it.
You can see why artists turn to nature for inspiration can't you Mary/ And to amusing videos!
my bookshelves are the first one (forget what it's called, but a combination of standing up & laying down.) I do keep likes together on their own shelves...knitting/fiction/children/reference, but that's as organized as I get.
I no longer feel I can claim a minimalist lifestyle. a niece visited on her way home from 6 months in Europe - everything she owns is in a backpack...a large backpack, but still, just a backpack. my yarn or books wouldn't fit into a backpack. sigh.
Oh to travel with a credit card a mobile phone and a change of underwear!
Love that Susan - thank you for sharing it!
