Desktop Wallpaper: August 2014

Designed by Rina Miele of Honey Design, this desktop wallpaper was inspired by a quote by Charles Eames: “Take your pleasure seriously.”

Rina explains:

Work is Play.

We all have the right to pursue happiness, but we often forget to pursue it. We just let it sit on the wayside, withering away into dust. More often than not it is because things that make us truly happy are just hobbies. Hobbies don’t pay the bills. We don’t do what we love at our day jobs quite the same way. This is Eames’ way of saying: Stop doing that.

If we do what pleases us, the passion is there. And where you find passion, happiness always follows. So a simple statement, but a monumental message. One thing I do know about Charles and Ray Eames is that they always enjoyed their work. They had a lot in common with Mary Poppins I suppose, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun”.

Let’s all pay attention to this lesson.
