I believe life is excess. It may not all be blueberry flavored honey sticks, or chocolate bon bons...
fresh seafood bars or the Madonna Inn...
but it - life - is based on our usage, creation, and storage of a little extra.
It is a mistake to think we should (or could) stop it...excess
but we should definitely channel it
turn it into something beautiful with our attention, our labor, our intentions
Procreation, pattern, love, lust, art, music, exploration, and creation are all the result of excesses. So are war, destruction, and pollution.
Perspective. Beauty. Desire. Habit.
Oh my gosh...I'm talking to a trash can....
