a most brilliant clutter

Today is the second blogiversary for Clutterquake. I really appreciate this space sometimes but never feel I must be here. That is what I hope it is for you, too.

In a variation of the famous quote by Ram Dass.........  
Be Here Now only if you want to be here now.

One quote which leaves me thinking about whatever it’s nonsense or not is Einstein’s “In clutter find simplicity”. I just don’t get the inner meaning in this one. Looking at the universe, like in your image, I definitely appreciate the clutter. It looks more interesting than simplicity. And mud has its charm. However, as a computer scientist I definitely appreciate simplicity but I find simplicity aesthetical (sorry about my rambling). A smashing pic of the universe btw.

Ande~ It is a smashing pic of the universe, most definitely! I loved it so much that I made it our screensaver.
The inner meaning I get from Einstein's quote is that simplicity can only be possible once clutter is cleared away. I may be reading into it my own personal agenda for the clutter I inherited and accumulated and how I don't want it to rule my life.

You have made me consider his words in a different manner now. His understanding of the universe was superior to most mortals; maybe he found a simplicity in his own understanding of it. . . . .

Thanks for being here. :)

Very pretty photo indeed. Millions and millions of stars. Here in Manhattan we can discern on a given evening night, um, maybe nearly two. (And one is the moon.)

We've got nearly everything else to have, but we don't seem to have the heavens.

Lydia said...

bfk~ Well, I still remember the fabulous full moon there one March.

Even here we don't seem them like we did out in Steamboat, or out in the country beyond this town. I looked forward to the annual Star Party at Silver Falls State Park all year, and the one Saturday in August that had a fully clouded night sky was....yup.
