My daughter is sick again, and I have a ton of workers in the house fixing my flodded bathroom. But I found some things that inspired me today, and I want to share them with you:-)

Nureyev- The life, is for me an obsessive read. He was just totally consumed with ballet and the arts in general. I know the feeling to well. I have trouble putting it down.

I also made a little collage, and I noticed in the process that I chose images with a lot cleaner look than I used to. I’ve been totally into the romantic, shabby chic look for years actually. But I think maybe I'm on a new path esthetically.

Word of the day:
It is in the knowledge of the genuine conditions of our lives that we must draw our strenght to live and our reasons for living.
-Simone De Beauvoir

And the soundtrack ( and video) for this post you can find here.

  1. I love to make collages...isn't it a nice way to organize your imagery? I also have enjoyed cleaner design in recent years...my last house in the mountains was very white and modern. Though our current house went back to the eclectic "world travel" style of my parents. Sometimes, you have to stick with your roots.

  2. Collages are great fun. And yes it organizes the imagery. It's much the same as my diary writing. I just let it all pour out, and then in retrospect it's kind of insightful. And concerning my home, I'll never be truly minimalistic. I have my stuff from my grandparents, my aunt I New Orleans that sadly died three years ago, my stuff from Africa...Bali. The shabby and personal will never leave this place.
