I've never regretted the color we selected for our bedroom wall years ago.
This thought struck me when I woke up this morning
and turned on the lamp--
something else I don't regret....purchasing the lamp, I mean.
At a thrift store, I'm sure.
Also years ago.
“Just tell yourself, Duckie, you're really quite lucky.”
“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”
Of course, everything is second- or third- or fourth-hand.
Except for a rare dusting and an occasional addition of a thrifted child's Golden Book,
very little has changed over the past couple of years.
It's comforting somehow...

How do you keep yourself inspired?
"I travel as much as I can to keep my mind open. I go a
lot to the beach for the fresh air. I love watching movies and I
especially like French cinema aesthetic. I also read a lot; I swap
between learning books that teach me something and novels that make me
dream. Besides, I also try to be surrounded by creative people to both
inspire and be inspired."
As much as I enjoy the photos at Freunde von Freunden,
I enjoy the interviews. I find them stimulating, intelligent, and inspiring.
A recent (and rare - since I've called a sort of moratorium on thrift store shopping)
purchase at my favorite thrift store.
1/2 of $.25 made it impossible to pass up.
The color matches the house color on the dust cover of my book.
They're probably from the same era, too...
