So this little cup that I found at a house sale a number of years ago.....kind of speaks to me or rather about me. There is no doubt that I like a lot.....a whole lot....but the term "greedy" sounds rather harsh....don't you think? I can't help it if I find beauty in so many things or the possibility of a use for everything. I fundamentally disagree with the saying "less is more". That doesn't even make sense! There is no doubt that I am a gatherer.....and some would say a hoarder....I acquire too many things and part with few. It's a definite flaw in my character. I clearly like excess.....A single scoop of ice cream just won't suffice....a bowl of the stuff is more my style. After all, more is more!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
