It is a fun exercise to think up different scenarios or experiences that could be elegant. How could this system or institution be elegant? How could my life be?
I like his writing and the way his brain works. He also dialogues, which is fun! The other day on twitter, I tweeted something about his definition of elegance, pertaining to something specific. Within minutes he responded with this:
Cool! Sometimes easier to describe what it (elegance) isn't: confusing, wasteful, ineffective, unnatural, hard to use, hazardous, ugly.
It could be a consuming passion to pursue elegance on every front. Be elegant. Have elegance. Create elegance. Search out the elegant. Crave elegance. Live elegantly.
I've mentioned it before; it is a great paradigm shifting sort of book if you're needing a refreshing tweek.
