quote for the week

Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents' pots and pans, the used things, warm with generations of human touch, essential to a human landscape.  Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transistorized landscapes.  A featherweight portable museum.  ~Susan Sontag

hmm, i think its essential to our world to enjoy things 'used' and 'worn'. It keeps us humble, sustainable, and less greedy!

Half the mangled rainforest lies in bags and boxes in our house. Paper work is the bane of my existence.
