|A few of my favorite things:|
Do I really need to explain more?
This one is harder to explain. This amazing group of Belgians built this UNBELIEVABLE structure at Burning Man 2006. I would have LOVED to have been able to see it in person...or even better, have been able to help build it. I am obsessed with this sculpture.
HERE is a link to some of my favorite pictures of the structure.

Here are some recent favorite quotes.
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,
and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome,
charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in
one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
"Never again clutter your days or nights with so
many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept
a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well
as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are
not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability
to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No
more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space,
to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!"
"The married are those who have taken the terrible
risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to
"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew."
