quote of the day

"Clutter and mess show us that life is being lived...Tidiness makes me think of held breath, of suspended animation... Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist's true friend. What people somehow forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here."

Somebody forgot to plump up my messiness genes and I hereby accuse them of stifling my artistic rights.

Life is definitely lived at our house. By the look of my kids rooms, the really know who they are.
