"William Henry Channing's Symphony" by Arthur Brisbane
(an editorial from the Hearst Newspapers, ca. 1920)

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Sleepy dollies

Bought these knitted dolls from a simple street market store in Bangkok.

You can even get each of them tailormade by choosing the color combi that you fancy.

Very appreciative and wowed by the shop's owner excellent service. The lovely lady actually agreed most readily to knit the dollies for me in a matter of 2 days (due to my short trip) at no extra cost, despite the cheap prices! Shall update the cost once I find the receipt :)

Happy treats

from Dunkin' Donuts at MBK (BKK) last X'mas.

An interesting twist to numericals

Captured this at P2 Boutique hotel in Bangkok where humptydump stayed for a short vacation.

Still very inspired by the way each of the levels is numbered by a canvas painting (slightly larger than A4 size)created from simple motifs and colours.

who fills that space in your heart
