CONTEMPLATING TRENDS

All the flowers of all the tomorrows are planted in the seeds of today.”  –Chinese Proverbs

It’s difficult to ignore the current trends of today.  Everywhere we see this or that new thing to aspire to.  They can be short lived and fizzle out quickly or they may stand the test of time.  What I like about trends is the power it gives me to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to them.  Some even encourage me to create from them in a unique manner with existing resources.

“Trends are like a river:  You can try to divert the water’s course, you can go for a swim, or you can sit on the bank and watch.  The only thing you can’t do is stop the current.”  –Stephen Orr

Now that cooler weather is coming, I can begin an outdoor trend to beautify the curb appeal of our home.

Wishing you a happy weekend.
