and in your mind
be empty for awhile.
the emptiness may be uncomfortable at first,
but that’s where the answers lie.

source: be more with less.

Maybe your Beanie Babies will become collectibles again, and the joke will be on us.
and 2 very different philosophies from 2 very creative geniuses on this subject:

“out of clutter, find simplicity.”
