~ ELISE AND I HAD ONE HOUR TO SPARE ~
The effervescent Elise Polito, aesthete and creator of fancy florals, stopped by Melbourne for a quick visit. She and I ruminated on whether having too much of a good thing was actually possible. We arrived at the conclusion that you can indeed ‘overdose’ on the good stuff and that life is all about maintaining balance and equilibrium.
One needs a level of adversity to be able to fully experience joy (the kind that hurts your face, and plumps your heart like a freshly fluffed pillow). It is necessary to undergo waves of toil to truly relish in the simplicity and delight found in rest; and we need boredom to get us moving again when we become idle.
