Say yes and mean yes,
Say no and mean no!Matthew 5 : 37 (Sandy’s understanding. Simple to say but hard to do.)
I say lines exist to simplify and as Leonardo da Vinci says:
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
How often I heard these words while growing up:
One has to draw the line somewhere…this time I have to say no…
There is a fine line between…genius and madness…
…blur the lines…rules are there to keep you safe, don’t fall through the ice…
The whole universe is based on rhythms. Everything happens in circles, in spirals.John Hartford (1937-2001 American folk, country and bluegrass composer and musician.)
“Try not to complicate your life by attaching yourself in a circle of people who would dare to influence you to engage in self – destructive decisions and actions. ”
“Keep your circle small with positive minded individuals who only come to grow with you, and not take advantage of you. “
Edmond Mbiako (American self- help writer.)
Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last limit of genius.George Sand a pen name for a French woman with a very long real name Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin de Francueil. She was one of the most popular writers in Europe in her life time 1804-1876)
Lines and circles,
thin and blurred,
Layers of how you want to be.
Thank you for thinking with me.
One thought on “Queen Anne’s lace (lines) and oil poppy heads (circles).”
What a wonderful, thoughtful post. Yes, we must keep drawing ourselves. A perfect message for this time of year. What will we draw for the next year? How might we use lines and curves to change the course or trajectory of our lives?
