I have so much catching up to do with my blogs! I haven’t read some for a while, and commenting has been scarce too. Apologies, I’ve been busy, and I suppose that’s good. So today I decided to read two, including this one (which looks as though I need to still catch up a little more to fully understand). However, this picture took my eye and reminded me of a conversation long ago.
It was on my wedding day. A good friend took me to one side and said ‘I’m going to give you the best advice of your life…..
….Throughout your life you will meet many people. Some of them will have beautiful, perfectly manicured homes. As soon as you discover this – drop them. Their lives will be empty and they will have nothing to offer you except critiscism and guilt’
I’m not sure that I’ve followed her advice to the letter, but there is something empty about the absolutely perfect dwelling. I don’t mean the houses that are clean and tidy, but those that are ‘show house’ perfect.
Don’t come and visit me if you expect the latter, by the way, just remember that creativity is formed of chaos……….
