Tis The Season….Clutter research

I am a big fan of Permaculture Design, applied at any scale: it is a way of understand natural and man-made systems and applying design principles that foster improved function, efficiency and sustainability. I have talked about The Natural Step here before: they simplified Permaculture into four simple questions – providing an operational definition of sustainability. Feng Shui (minus all the religious and philosophical trappings) is, essentially, the same kind of thing. Whatever the discipline, the objectives are mainly inline.

Here the issue of clutter and the research on how that fits into the picture is discussed at length. The Asian elegance shows through immediately. Simpler is always better in my view:-)

The OliveTomato

Here is the link to the latest Post by my favorite source for Mediterranean anything, but diet and lifestyle in particular. She does a great job of balanced coverage of the issues that come up in the research and the press around all things Greek and as it relates to the Mediterranean Diet.

A lot of people have a lot to say about a lot of things: Most don’t know as much as they would lead you to believe. She does.

You have to be careful who you listen to…
