Transient

Nothing is so transient than food… From the seeds to the fields to the supermarkets to our homes and tables and long after that. Its ever changing qualities and forms have sustained us through the years in countless different ways. No wonder that they say that food industry will never be bankrupt as long as we live.

Focus

This is what happens when I am overly focus

Order

I already told you I am a bit of an OCD. I believe in harmony when it comes to space and design. People told me my place looks like a showroom rather than lived-in. Visitors who comes over my threshold for the first time always say the same thing: “It looks like nobody lives here!” But that’s me. There is a proper place for everything. I can’t sleep if there is still a cup lounging on the counter top. I can’t stand glasses on the coffee table. I can’t understand why is such a difficult task to put things away before going to bed instead of leaving them scattered around. Little things amount to one big thing which can easily give birth to more bigger things which can lead to chaos and disorder if left unattended. I have an eye for details (that’s my job) I can easily see if for example a vase had been moved a few millimeters from its original place. I cannot stand disarray. I know in art all sorts of disarrangement form a cohesive pattern. That I could understand. But not when it doesn’t make sense and not pleasing to the eye. To give you an example of how I live. Let me show you my two houses…

Reflecting

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.

Wanderlust

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
― Christopher McCandless

 

 

 

Earth

Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.

Surprise

Joseph Addison once said: “Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.” That’s why I love gardens and gardening, because what you plant is not what always comes out the ground; there is always some surprises in the making, some twists, some varieties. Anyone who has a garden knows that plants have their own minds and grow and stand where they please. And it doesn’t stop there. When you have a garden, you have visitors and they have their own surprises in petto. Not always in a nice way perhaps but C’est la vie. 

 

Dense

A view of nature as dense and nonlinear is at the core of our contemporary science. Process and order emerge subtly.
