THE IMPORTANCE OF POCKETS

There should be a pocket law.

Everything wearable needs one.

Even nightclothes.

You know, for phones, Kleenex, small animals,whatever…

My child had socks with a pocket to hide money in.

Damp money, but useful.

SOUNDS LIKE OPEN SOURCE TO ME

“I was really taken by how genuine and pure they are. I’ve never met any group of people, in any walk of life, who are so true to themselves. It’s not about money, or fame, or how they are perceived by the public or the media — it’s all about the waves, and a love of the sport. I was also fascinated by the diverse personalities, about as radical a difference as you can find, and how a single purpose brought them all together.”

Katherine Clark ,El Granada Realtor and former owner of the Road House Cafe in Princeton Harbor, was speaking about surfers. She may as well have been speaking about people who work in open source.

HIMSELF NEEDS A TIFFEN WALLAH

because he ate cookies for lunch.

Actually, a tiffen wallah would be his idea of a dream come true.

He loves my cooking, bless him.

If only he would carry the insulated bento box that I used to send to school in lue of cafeteria food…

ENVIROMENT IS EVERYTHING

Even your “happy place” is just another environment.

MINIMALIST MAFIA

You know who you are.

I appreciate your ascetic aesthetic. Truly.

Very Zen or “spa” or mid-century modern or whatever you guys are going for now.

What you call cluttered, I call cozy. Have you never heard of layering a room?

I know you think I have too many things but they are MY things.

What you think of as over-the-top, I call Venetian opulence. đŸ™‚

You think my antiques are junk. They are heirlooms.

My collections are a mystery to you.

To you, my style is old-fashioned. To me it is a reminder of a gentler, more civilized time.

And then you started on the books. Can you have too many books? The Kindle is fine for travel or research but I can’t visit it like the old friends my books are. It does not work for art books and you can’t whisper to a friend that the naughty bit is on page 257. But you are winning. Kindles are even showing up at my Book Club.

Ironically, now you want me to read  The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential…in Business and in Life .

Hmmmm. I have to buy another book. Oh dear.

And I want you to read, oh, I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s the opposite of that book.

I know I have it here somewhere,

In one of these bookcases.

Somewhere- among these many, many books…

ADDENDUM-Actually, it was an awesome book, not at all what I expected.
