Wednesday, 2 cents of wisdom;

Dry, spend leaves have their special beauty. 

Be creative;
Do not buy mass produced goods, go for quality;
Choose handmade goods from small cottage industries;
Buy one good painting you really like instead of buying 50 reproductions.
Even better paint one yourself.
Look and listen;
Enjoy  nature, colours, stillness.
Read one of the Philosophers;
Enjoy cooking a special meal, try to make your own recipes.
Learn a new language, even if only a few sentences.
Don’t accept everything at face value, make up your own mind;
Do not follow trends;
Don’t be to materialistic, it takes the pleasure away from being creative.

Miniature Bougainvillea;

.Creative individuals
 have a great deal of energy, but they are also often quiet and at rest,

tend to be smart,

have a combination of playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility;
alternate between imagination, fantasy, and  their sense of  reality,

seem to harbour opposite tendencies between extroversion and introversion.

Generally, creative people are  rebellious and independent.

Tuesday; care...

We are lucky to live well, have a  happy life, others don't, children are always the most vulnerable and easily exploited by people who are the most despicable of mankind. They do not care at all how they make money; if possible always on the back of others.

Tell Nintendo Slavery is Not a Game;

Conflict minerals are mined by prisoners of war and child slaves.
 Nintendo doesn't seem to think this matters.
Electronics like laptops, cell phones, and game consoles contain minerals that are often mined by people in the Congo forced to perform this labor under threat of violence or death. This is why they are often called 'conflict minerals.'

Companies like HP, Apple and Microsoft have taken steps to make their products conflict-free, but not Nintendo.

The very first step for Nintendo to rid its products of conflict minerals is to audit its supply chain and make the information public.

The violence and slavery associated with the production of minerals in the Congo is devastating. There is absolutely no excuse for a company with so much money and power to turn a blind eye to this human rights tragedy.

Care2 Action alerts.

Monday; capricious;


Given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behavior. 
whimsical - wayward - fickle - freakish - crotchety 

Freakish,  flowering now, the Hippeastrum flowers generally in spring, October, November, depending on the weather into December.

Wayward; cherry tree flowering now towards end of summer; it should flower in spring!

Fickle; Lichen are choosy, Lichens and mosses only grow in areas where the air is clean and will not flourish in gardens in polluted inner-city suburbs.

Whimsical; Lovely moth, saw it in the morning on the fence. Moth and Lichens are some of my favourites. 
There is something about them, interesting in all aspects and absolutely beautiful.
