How lovely is this idea of a vase in the shape of a book to put between books on a bookshelf?
“It’s your life — but only if you make it so. The standards by which you live must be your own standards, your own values, your own convictions in regard to what is right and wrong, what is true and false, what is important and what is trivial. When you adopt the standards and the values of someone else or a community or a pressure group, you surrender your own integrity. You become, to the extent of your surrender, less of a human being.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt

A big thank you to Behomm for sponsoring this week’s RSS Feed.
@SwissMiss: “How often do you come across a website that makes you jump out of your seat of excitement? I just did: Behomm is a house swap website for designers and visual artists only. The homes featured on the site are stunning, absolutely breathtaking. I am a big believer in house swaps, we do it every year with ‘friends of friends’ in Switzerland. You know: I stay at your house while you stay at my house.”
@ElleDecor: “A New Way to Travel: Behomm, an invite-only site for designers & visual artists offering home exchange worldwide.”
@SilviaGalluzzi: “Living in a beautiful home anywhere in the world for free and meeting people with shared interests is a dream for those who love the aesthetics! Thanks Behomm.”
Behomm is a travel revolution for creatives. A fast growing community. In 1 year we’re more than 700 members from Bali to New York. For security reasons we’re a by invitation-only community, we avoid anonymous registrations. Small homes are more than welcome. Aesthetics has nothing to do with luxury.
“Celebrate what you want to see more of.”

Watching traffic moving trough this intersection in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia makes my heart race a bit faster.
“Immediately after every lecture, meeting, or any significant experience, take 30 seconds — no more, no less — to write down the most important points. If you always do just this, said his grandfather, and even if you only do this, with no other revision, you will be okay.”
