wow, you have been busy, Saskia!! the ruminations about what we need and about simplicity are wonderful to read....

did I leave a Beyonce link somewhere? I swear I'm losing my mind. Thought I did on CB2, but I don't see it...

thanks Dee, and yes you left a Beyonce comment over at CB2.

and wanting/needing less, I mean I too want (to make) beautiful stuff and at the same want to want less..., one of the reasons being: so many people have so little, because we in the West have so/too much. And on a personal level: more is not in itself better, at a certain point it becomes a burden...I have not yet come to a conclusion.....

My sister and I were just talking about the burden aspect last night. I'm reading "The Walk" series and he ends up with pretty much nothing! It makes you think!

Hi again Nancy, yes ending up with pretty much nothing sounds just about right to me; I'm going to check out this/these book/s, thank you.
