What inspires me?

Hi! My name is Cassie and I dream of the perfect house. I love knowing what makes a home a home, and how design can give you a portrait of the inhabitants.  If you like this post, I might as well make it a series showing my favorites. I'm very bad at crediting (mainly because I'm constantly just clicking and saving and moving to the next images) but I will absolutely credit you if you've taken any of these pictures -- just let me know. So, enjoy!



We are all capable of infinitely

We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe.

Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up to discover what is already there.

Inspiring Vibrato

I think everyone has had that moment where they hear this completely amazing song in a commercial and are blown away. You run, chanting the little bit you've memorized, to Google to discover this wonderful song that might just complete your life. Or at the very least make your drive to work tomorrow better. This was my moment.

Not only was the song great ("Into the Wild" by LP) but the commercial is really inspiring too. Especially as I used to rock climb myself and I've always had a soft spot for people with an unconventional approach to happiness (like the chick in the commercial).

But anyway, yeah. LP. Amazing band/singer/person. Not to mention that HAIR.
