‘When engaging in tinkering, you incur a lot of small losses, then once in a while you find something rather significant.’*

This is about flanering, or wandering, from the man who introduced me to the concept. Engaging with life in a curious and intentional way, finding the rather significant something, or what Rohit Bhargava might call the elegant proof: ‘they are simple, ingenious, concise, and persuasive; they have an unexpected quality, and they are very satisfying.’**

Elegance involves flow; it’s what makes your giftedness flow to others in a simple and beautiful way.  You will find it by tinkering, wandering, flanering.

Have fun.
