charley harper

i had never really been aware of charley harper before but whole foods has this day timer:
i LOVE his pictures. i don't really need a day timer but want to buy this one anyway. . .
but should probably get these very cute cards. . . love love love
i think this is from the golden book, holy snap i want to find this golden book at a thrift store for 2 bucks! then sell it for $200! geez
his art is really inspiring to me. i love the simplicity of line, the bold colors and the emotion. it's such a talent to convey so much with so much simplicity. most people know that editing isn't easy, to be simple can take skill and practice! in all things.
tyler's post here discussed both simplicity and capitalism too, free market choice. i love the idea that you vote with every purchase you make (that was at the end of food inc.). it was a real syncronicity to be reminded to actually really think about and plan your purchase. quality not quantity. to buy things that actually add a benefit to your life. he who dies with the most toys does not win because you can't take that with you. having things in your life that increase your joy. greed isn't good but it's hard not to have a lot of very strong feelings associated with money, and it's really hard to look them in the face sometime because there are some pretty horrible feelings. FEAR. WORRY. ENVY.
that's a part of the new good life. i'm reading john robbin's book:
his story is very interesting, he was the heir to the baskin robbins company and he walked away from it. would you? could you? hmmm. . . he's got drive and courage and is very honest. i find him very inspiring too.

and watched this movie, michael moore can be dramatic but there is a lot of truth in this as well. it gives you some awareness and insight into where our country is now. when the bible says beware of wolves in sheep's clothing, i think it could be talking about guys in suits:
