Grass and Mad Men

Sometimes there are no roses, or peonies, or even cute sunflowers. Sometimes there aren't big, blousy, beautiful flowers for giant bouquets. Sometimes your garden seems empty. It never is though...a clear head and a little imagination and even grass can be your next subject...

Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears.
Albert Camus

...and because I am in a quotey mood and because more than any other TV show, the one that leaves kernels of scenes replaying through my head months later, the one that creates beautiful pictures in each frame that ooze creativity and style, the one that speaks to this new era of SAHM's more than any modern period piece,  the TV show that is stuck in my head like no other is Mad Men......because Mad Men is one of the few pieces of work that is so inspiring to me that I don't want to create anything.  I simply want to watch it.

If you ever have the good fortune to create a great advertising campaign, you will soon see another agency steal it. This is irritating, but don't let it worry you; nobody has ever built a brand by imitating somebody else's advertising.
David Ogilvy

Much of the messy advertising you see on television today is the product of committees. Committees can criticize advertisements, but they should never be allowed to create them.
David Ogilvy

In the modern world of business, it is useless to be a creative, original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.
