Less Is More... Unless You Already Promised... A Lot... ๐Ÿค”

The other night, I parked my car (in the garage), opened the door and walked right into, a huge - spider web. It's gluey fuzziness, stuck to my nose... and face. Y'all know what that feels like, right?

After my initial - "Ughhh !" and some wild flailing of the arms - there was this ; "What the fuck !" moment. I mean, seriously. I'd gone through that same web, three or four times, in the previous two weeks. I'd had enough! Rather than accept, this behaviour any longer, I searched out the culprit and squished him. It was quick... and painless. If his web had been smaller, he'd never have perished. 'Less is more' - is a lesson, THAT little guy, would never acquire. And it's a notion, some of us... are still learning.

For those who don't know ; 'Less is more' , is the belief that - simplicity and clarity, lead to better design. It's often described as 'minimalism'. It refers to anything, that is spare or stripped to its essentials. Sorta... like a one word blog or... the middle finger, in the midst of a conversation. Ya don't need much - to understand the person's thoughts.

I used to make my point (in a conversation), three times, thinking three - was about the right amount of times, to be understood. I used to write, 'drag on' sentences, that would go on forever. I used to... ugh, never mind. You get my point.

Yep. I don't have much else to add. Less is more ... is a principal that works, in just about any scenario of life ; music, art, architecture, every day conversations. Everything!

Except of course... when you've promised her seven and a quarter... and you're delivering, four and a half. Hmmm... Yep.. that might be, a bad thing.

What do you think? Does LESS .... do MORE ... for you, in all aspects of your life? ๐Ÿค”

It was poet, Robert Browning, in an 1855 poem titled - Andrea del Sarto who first used the phrase.
..............
Who strive - you don't know how the others strive
To paint a little thing like that you smeared
Carelessly passing with your robes afloat,-
Yet do much less, so much less, Someone says,
(I know his name, no matter) - so much less!
Well, less is more, Lucrezia.

..............

Yes... That's the poem. I don't really know, what he's talking about. Less is more... I guess. ๐Ÿค”

The phrase is often associated with the architect and furniture designer Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe (1886-1969), one of the founders of modern architecture and a proponent of simplicity of style. He first used the phrase in 1947.

If his designs for tower blocks are anything to go by, he certainly lived up to his words.

Less is more when it comes to b.s., debates and waiting in line but not when it comes to pleasure and fulfillment.

And makeup.

To quote CS Lewis:

Woman, amore gifted sculpture far
Has chiseled those curves you smear and mar.
God has done more than lipstick can
To justify your lips to man.

I had a college professor who insisted that our papers be one page, double spaced. More than that and he'd knock down our grade.

This was in business school and his point was that in business, one should be able to communicate briefly and clearly to be successful.

I did well in the class but these days I probably blather on a bit too much in my blog!

Even though I have acquired a lot of crap over the years, I still consider myself a minimalist. And I prefer smaller breasts on women but it's not a deciding factor.

For me in my real life less is more when it comes to owning things.I like to keep it simple in that regard. On this site though I am not known for my less is more that often, in the way of stripping away the essentials...lol. It all depends what mood I am in when showing less is more, or more is less my coffee mate....lol.
