We found this beautiful gif on Krulwich Wonders some time ago, along with a quote that resonated deeply:
We wax, we wane. It’s the dance of life. Every living thing is a pulse. We quicken, then we fade.
There’s more to the quote, but the part we related to was principle of waxing and waning, the constant dance. As we find ourselves waning, dealing with winter’s flu and needing a few days rest to replenish and heal, we are reminded that it is the deal…Nature.
We’ve posted some links, below, that we thought you might enjoy in the meantime. You’ll also find an ongoing trove of cool and useful ideas on ‘the improvised life’s Facebook (you don’t have to be a member), on our Pinterest, and Twitter…
Some upcycled pallet chairs the remind us of Enzo Mari’s Autoprogettezione + a modular pop-up office made from reclaimed pallets
The courageous, inspiring Gulabi gang in North India, a group of women activists fighting violence against women; they only wear PINK!
A diy pipe bed frame that reminds us of the endless possibilities for using ordinary pipe…
The Clown Nose Movement; how wearing a clown nose can lift your spirits (we’ve tried it; it absolutely works!)
We hope to be back full-force soon.
