Everyone is good to work, but only a few know the art of goofing off.
We have so many days recognized as national events, one of them is national day of goofing off. That's right, goofing off. Who would ever known?! It occurs the last week of March and it is intended to teach us how to be inactive for one day. Goofing off for one day will give us the opportunity to ponder before acting on a certain matter; to reflect and concentrate on life challenges; to relax our mind and prepare us to produce better results. To know how to goof off is a virtue and I call it:
"creative" goofing off.
To live a life is a difficult job, we must understand how to search for the pleasure that will make our lives worth living in harmony, relaxation and peace in order to give to others around us the same pleasure.
The first place where our "creative" goofing off time can happen is in our homes. With a variety of small and large improvements any home can become a paradise on earth. Spring is the right time to think about outdoor rooms with outdoor music and entertainment.
Outdoor rooms today are more than chaise lounges and wrought iron tables. It is possible to create "situational music" environment adapted for individual spaces. Soundscapes for garden or "situational music" will incorporate sounds from nature, giving an expanded spatial feel to a garden or an outdoor room. It will also mitigate traffic noise through the application of psychoacoustic and enhance the aesthetic of landscape and architectural designs.

How about allowing for a space near a pool to host an outdoor solar shower with warm water. Nice idea!
And why not illuminating trees and vegetation with dress lamps (see photo below) for a touch of fantasy and whimsy, of course all in LED.
Goofing off at least once a week is an art form, says Carlo Bruni, an Italian journalist.
It doesn't produce noise, doesn't waist precious resources, it doesn't polluted water, but it rejuvenates your own resources anf gives you the possibility to think clearly on life's matters.
The time is NOW, take advantage of the low construction costs of this moment. I can help you implementing these ideas, designing them, finding the right material and the right professionals to execute them.
Please, forward this piece of information to anyone you think might be interested in reading me. Love to hear your comments too.

"Octavian, a Roman Emperor once said "slow down, we are in a hurry". My book is a tribute to slow food and appreciation of life, a life made with human rhythms".
