"We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars." - Carl Sagan
"We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment."
- Johannes Kepler as quoted in Cosmos (1980)
"By exploring other worlds we safeguard this one. By itself, I think this fact more than justifies the money our species has spent in sending ships to other worlds. It is our fate to live during one of the most perilous and, at the same time, one of the most hopeful chapters in human history." - Carl Sagan

I've been drawn to stark interiors lately... with furniture at a minimum, light textures and an elegantly unfinished look with bare, white walls.
This look unfortunately doesn't seem to work at our new place, or maybe I just don't know what I'm doing... :\ I refuse to buy a traditional sofa & other bulky things.... partly because that would mean more things to lug around next time we move... oh well... next time maybe a loft will be more "design friendly"...
