A short list of goals


Eat cleaner.

Stop making excuses.

Listen to classical music.

Read something every morning.

Stop buying cheap, and invest in quality.

Keep it simple.

Reminder, self.

On a quest to eliminate as many chemicals from my life as possible. I’ve been experimenting with making my own cleaning and beauty products for a while already, but I want to take it further.

Ideally, I’d open my cabinets and see no colorful brand names. I would see jars of ordinary household items, mixed in different combinations to suffice for everything. With vinegar, borax, and bleach, you can clean your whole house. With coconut oil, sugar, corn starch, and baking soda, you can clean your whole body.

Just some cool stuff to think about.

To describe a building as beautiful therefore suggests more than a mere aesthetic fondness; it implies an attraction to the particular way of life this structure is promoting through its roof, door handles, window frames, staircase, and furnishings. A feeling of beauty is a sign that we have come upon a material articulation of certain of our ideas of a good life.
