Living Beautifully by beautiful.business is a regular newsletter to share and inspire a different way of looking at the world: we have all had enough of ugly. I am curious about beauty – why does beauty call us? Why do we know instinctively beauty is about truth and ethics and, a life lived that feels worthwhile? Celebrating beauty, honouring craftsmanship, as well as making better things for better reasons. Newsletter No.19.
