where green living, parenthood, and interiors intersect

A little sunday evening wisdom...

I don't have any interior design inspiration to post or ecological advice to wax on about today, just this beautiful profound quotation from the Dalai Lama that I pulled from - where else? - a facebook profile.

"The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, 'Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. He is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.'"
