THE TRUTH ABOUT GAUDY

1506693_598420786898475_922657346_n

Gaudy: adj. extravagantly displaying random colors and/or materials

Gaudy really means using an excessive amount of random colors and/or materials which visually clash and can be described by words such as messy, thrown together, potpourri, random, and mixed up. You can have extravagant attire such as apparel worn by Vegas showgirls which is not really gaudy because it is not thrown together randomly but is often quite symmetrical and colorful in an organized way with pleasant eye appeal.

Gaudiness can be said to be directly proportional to the degree of randomness. The more random, the more gaudy.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EXTRAVAGANCE*

maxresdefault

Extravagance: n. very excessive inefficient use of money and/or resources

The bad thing about extravagance is that it is generally too much of something and very inefficient use of money and/or resources. The very rich are usually guilty of extravagance with huge homes, huge boats, huge airplanes, and overpriced clothing, jewelry, artwork, and cars. Sustainable living is not an extravagant lifestyle.

Many average humans are also guilty of extravagance within their limited budgets. They aren’t thrifty, inefficiently spend money on too many often oversized products, and are generally interested in quantity rather than quality. They too are not living sustainable lifestyles with an emphasis on simplicity, efficiency, frugality, and minimum use of resources.

Until humanity changes its obsession with anything big being more powerful and desirable we will continue to have a natural tendency towards extravagance.
