Hearth

Okay, that's really cool.

From Health Magazine:

"Because unpredictable incomes make insurance unaffordable for many artists, Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, offers creative types a $40 credit for every hour they volunteer to paint lobby murals or teach art to young patients. A 1-hour credit covers up to 4 prescriptions or a doctor's appointment (with lab work) at New York's low-cost public hospitals."

Super-shiny.

Simplify

I'm going through stacks of catalogs, because that actually is the #1 source of mess in my bedroom and bathroom right now; I'm making a list of the ones I'll want to request when I move, wishlisting the stuff I've been meaning to wishlist, and throwing them all out!

I'd wanted a particular plaque, but it appears to no longer be offered. *pout* So I'll reproduce the saying here, because I do like it. Maybe I'll make my own plaque. *nod*

It had a large feather on it, and it said:

slow down

imagine doing less

make time for loved ones

practice patience

learn to gently say no

increase your quiet time

follow your heart

yield to life

yield to peace

yield to joy


And it had "simplify" in ivory letters behind all of that.

I need reminders like this. I am not good at the doing less, at the yielding.

More Quote-ness

Also from a catalog, but I've used this one in conversation, as it's one of my general policies in life...

When you come to the edge of all the light you have known and are about to step out into the darkness, faith is knowing one of two things will happen...
There will be something to stand on, or
You will be taught to fly.
