“Eliminate the Unnecessary, So That Necessary May Speak”

It’s my birthday at the end of this month. It’s reached the stage where the candles cost more than the cake.
In my greynaissance period, I find that simplicity keeps me happy and the words of the impressionist painter Philip Hoffman resonate ever more loudly: “I eliminate the unnecessary, so that the necessary may speak.”

After all, there are only seven colours in the rainbow and look what Michelangelo did with these.
And there are only seven notes in music, but this didn’t stop Mozart from creating his masterpieces.
I think Leonardo da Vinci was right when he said that, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
So my advice to young or old is to KISS ….. Keep It Simple Sweetheart.
