Today's moodling is a simple encouragement to appreciate beauty where we find it in order to leave space in our lives to appreciate beauty. If we're having to dust, sort, organize and redecorate to keep our beautiful things and our lives in order, we're missing a lot of less tangible beautiful things, those experiences that we could be having if we weren't dusting, sorting, organizing or redecorating.
So whether it's a gorgeous vase in a shop on Whyte Avenue, or a pot of beautiful but fussy flowers (I've never managed to keep cyclamen looking like they did when I brought them home from the store), if we're living simply, it's usually better to appreciate beauty where we find it rather than bringing it home to clutter up our living space.
