and this lightness by design in 2011
makes everyday life easy to lead, savour and enjoy
April lightness idea
the taking action principle
with the levity
of living with courage
and without too much thought
I appreciate more and more
the effortless beauty in action
like a flower blooming
through words and ideas
on the other side
of the pond
planning an early
swift buoyant motion is the March plan
ok, January is gone
before I even gathered it had arrived
February lightness will shape style
I am tired enough of wearing serious dull boring uniforms
I’m not longing for eccentricity, funky, weird, whimsical bohemian or whatever
just a light style
not too serious, not too heavy, not too boring, not too daring
levity in spirit and fabrics and hues
levity as unpretentious
levity as too important to be brought to attention
use less (words, attachment, effort) and free time and resources instead
worry less, dramatise less and get the fresh energy of decision and action instead
store less and get free room for new life and new ideas
force less and accept more
adapt to life and complain less
jump lightly into new projects
be quick to embrace change
I like all the connotations of the word “lightness”

it takes a lot of confidence to choose lightness, doesn’t it?
oh, and of course, it takes some funny airy bold hats!
