Two young people I am extremely proud of, and who also let me be quite proud of myself… Someone has brought them up, after all.
I love to learn new things – and I believe that the best way to learn something is by actually doing it. I never say I can’t do something before I give it a try – and hardly ever after I have.
My number 1 rule for learning is to always learn from the best.
The sort of noise that does not bother me. On the contrary, I very much enjoy it, especially when it’s made by Queen, Bruce Springsteen, Talking Heads or Steely Dan. Or Leonard Cohen, when I want to keep things more quiet.
Yet another item on my ‘can’t do without’ list. The more wild, the better, but my own garden with my favorite (and huge) birch tree and raspberry bushes is also a place I like to spend time in.
Maybe I wouldn’t agree with A. Loos on ornament being crime, but I definitely take Mies van der Rohe’s statement ‘less is more’ as mine. I believe that too much decoration distracts from the message, in all situations, also in life.
Paper & Pen
I might forget to throw a lip gloss into my bag (and I usually do), but I always do have a pen and some paper handy. I like to sketch ideas and make notes, and I prefer to do it on paper than on my phone.
