    Zen Garden

    I've always wanted a Zen rock garden in my backyard (and I would if it didn't rain so much). Always thought it optimized beauty and simplicity :)

    Listen And Look

    I was on the way home from work at about 5 in the morning. At a stop sign I heard birds and felt a fresh morning breeze on my face. I felt so happy then. Later when I got up I went out and stated at the sky. I don't think I've done that in many years. Now my neighbors look at me...

    Just Step Outside

    Each blade of grass, the curve of each branch, the multiple leaves that hang off of it.  The different shades of green, the browns of the bark.  This is just what I see outside my front door.  Nature is simple and yet intricately beautiful and unbelievably designed...

    One think that I can definitely say that I appreciate is clear nights when I can look up and see all of the stars in the sky.  It reminds me of when I was young and innocent and how I would look outside my window at night when I was suppose to be asleep and look at the stars...

    Beauty and Simplicity In Design

    When creating anything, beauty and simplicity should be a primary goal. Without it, the creation cannot 'feel right' or complete. Google: search and find. It's simple, it works. Cluttered and busy faces of things point to an unclear purpose. Yahoo: what is it supposed to be...

    What Is Beauty?

    Both genes and culture appear to have strong effects on our notion of beauty. Symmetry is an important factor that seems to be fairly universal. Mirror symmetry of the face is most important. There may also be a ratio of the length of the nose to the size of the face that is...

    Take For Granted

    I've discovered something that relaxes me and helps relieve stress more than anything else (besides maybe music). That is, sitting outside in the backyard and reading, around late afternoon while the sun is just beginning to set. I'm right in front of a small forest and...

    The Times I Notice It the Most Is.......

    The times I notice it the most is when I am down in my wood shop.  It is while I am spinning a piece of wood on the wood lathe, watching as the wood slowly takes shape.  It is there when I join different woods together, the contrast of Black walnut and curly maple, then...

    I used to be quite a shopaholic, acquiring possessions which never seemed to look as good when I got home with them as they did on the shop shelf or hanger. Funnily, this was when I lived outside of the city.  I would visit the city at weekends and go on random shopping...

    I admire beauty when it comes to women.

    I find that some women who have curves, some that are thin, some who are short and tall, are all gorgeous people that pictures can't even capture their beauty. I like looking at selfies, friend pics, and even just random photos. The one thing I've noticed is when people say a...

    The Simple Things

    Simple, elegant, beautiful... and functional. These are qualities I like to see in my things. My decorations and style. My words and stories as well. Needless to say I don't like most women's shoes lol!
