I appreciate the simple – both in form, function, and thought. This blog began with a simple vision — to “share” ideas, images, and ways of living which I find visually and emotionally inspiring — in the hopes that you may “tell” someone else about what you find beautiful and inspiring. Sometimes, the spirit of an idea already has been captured gracefully by some else. In this case, William Phelps speaks right to the center of the essence and purpose of this blog — Show and Tell Me:

“The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts.

Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.”

I’ve come to appreciate that giving and sharing are at the center of connection, and that the act of connecting is where happiness begins. I hope that you enjoy this blog, and that you too will show and tell.
