The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.

Rolls of Pretty Papers

There are so much beauty everywhere. I was at a color workshop this morning where the teacher told us that “seeing is about knowing that the light comes in to the eye socket and bla-bla-blaaa…” I don’t think that is very interesting to think about. There is science and there is inner truth. Sometimes they are not the same.

What I believe: Seeing is about noticing what is worth noticing. Taking an interest in the details of daily life… There is so much happiness in seeing beauty. Like the rolls of paper in my paper collection.

And everywhere at home, I collect bits of pretty, bright, cute and interesting, often full of color and joy:

Tim Ferris and me
Pink Rubber Bear
Strawberry Shortcake
Wool Owl #3
Paper Punch out Butterflies
Owl Stickers
Cutting Pretty Paper
My Paper Piles

I hope you are taking an interest in the details, finding some color happiness – and maybe documenting it one way or another. Photos like these makes me extra happy.

This is happiness to me.
