The Element of Water makes me think of: movement, relaxation, currents, greenish-blue depths
The Element of Fire makes me think of: flickers, heat, attack, thought, consuming
The Element of Earth makes me think of: stability, base, original, clay, unchanged
My views on beauty are changing...
...When I look at gold-encrusted alters and crowns from Gothic Europe I just cringe and dream of simple bamboo ladels dipping out the clear mountain water.
This study on Japanese aesthetics is really changing me!!
But in a way, it is not a change at all.
I am the same way with gemstones: give me agates, hematite, and coral but keep the sapphires and diamonds because I do not like them much at all really... And then there is the fact that I refuse to sail on cruise ships but daydream of sailing an old wooden ship :D
Even a simple gift of a donut or new book will make my heart fly ^_^
I guess I am easy to please :p
