Going with the Flow

I stopped buying magazines years ago and I don't miss them, but I recently discovered a magazine that I LOVE. It's called Flow and it's a little like a magazine version of this blog. It started in the Netherlands a few years ago and has spread internationally. It's all about "celebrating creativity, imperfection and life's little pleasures".  

From the editorial to the latest edition, which includes an interview with Flemish psychiatrist, Dirk De Wachter: 
His message is so simple: Let us embrace the ordinary more often. "The coincidence of fate, finding without searching, noticing the little things and being open to whatever crosses your path: that's where the beauty of life can be found," says De Wachter. And he's right. Once we  (Flow founders Astid and Irene) started appreciating the ordinary, the world looked a  lot more special. How beautiful everyday things are once you notice them. 
A magazine editorial - a magazine - has never, ever resonated with me so much before.
