"Be Orderly In Your Life...

... so you can be violent and original in your work"

The latest Frankie mag (of all places!) used this wonderful Flaubert quote in a recent article about the delightful sounding Charlotte Gainsbourgh, and gosh does it resonate with me at the moment. I struggle with "orderliness" (as anyone who has seen my room can attest) and also, sometimes, with the idea that I'm not violent, crazy, artistic, boisterous "enough"... so this was a wonderful thing to hear and mull over in my head. 

As much as many of my idols lived wild, yelled loud, made a messy artwork of their unconventional lives... I never really will be one of those wild ones... and that's... okay!

Speaking of orderly... this is what I have been dreaming of having lately... Oh for an organised craft area! Which pretty much proves all of the above really! LOL.
