I'm reading the book "Die Kunst des stilvollen Verarmens" from Alexander von Schönburg. It is a real pity they don't have it in English. Translated the title is "The art of sinking into poverty with style". The author is a member of the European nobility, a brother to Gloria von Thurn und Taxis.
I love the way he depicts the contemporary situation in the world and what is absolutely necessary in life... or not.
It is exactly the way I think. We are told we need so many dispensable things and we just lose time and money.
I think we only need time to do all the wonderful things we'd like to do. And we already have all the material we need to make them!! This is really good news! We just need to open the eyes and dive in the world of creative discovery.
