Time overtakes everything.
A few days ago I had the luck of catching Yosef peering at himself in the Snoopy mirror. Most mirrored surfaces are way above him, so this looks like his first time! By the time I got to the camera, he’s had enough. It was a strange and wonderful feeling seeing him think.
So I have words stuck in this body of water. We are two-thirds water. I have had these words on my body for a while now:
Some of us keep memories in containers. Some of us keep memories in water.
HY has some stories to share about my tattoo sessions. Stay tuned.
Do many choices/chores make you forget the journey?
What a piece of white paper couldn’t do.
We are going to make gemstone rings as how they look in the 18th century, closed back and with no modern idea of color ‘charting’. This is challenging for our modern eyes and mind, so used to thinking of colors as either cold or warm, stones as ‘gemstones’, and light above surprise. By the latter, I mean the story ends as long as as a stone is ‘sparkly’.
Good for magpies.
But even beauty can get boring. Which explains why we look towards breaking what current jewellers esteem, to go in the direction of beauty forgotten. Beauty that considers imperfection alongside perfection.
Hurry, hurry, onwards to the destination.
Goodbye, forever, if I knew what forever entails.

The dog is so tired of our routine. All the toys and figurines in World Savage cannot come out to play because we are never asleep. Now I understand why the sun must be absent and the moon present when making toys. Imparting human love and loss is necessary to animate them.
From the waxing moon to the full
the lessons on and on.

Each day we spend a few hours bringing back the circus. Each day we find it less worrying and more amazing. Sometimes you must start all over to begin properly. You may not forget the past.
Allscript has been doing a great job. Recently I found increasingly interesting titles beyond Kinfolk, Monocle, Cereal and those titles you find at decent magazine racks. I like that Four&Sons is a magazine where “dogs and culture collide”. Beyond our love for dogs, it is this love that says so much about mankind. I like that the curation of articles and creative direction in Four&Sons know dogs could be more permanent than hotdogs and more deserving of consideration, outside their dogginess and thus inside our consciousness.
I am crazy about lenticular art. You will see more of these cards here, as my collection grows.

When we renovated the house, we got the contractor to build a toilet for my dog in my bathroom. Unfortunately, he never used his posh, private toilet and likes to do his business where all other dogs do their business.
We now use the space to store our vacuum cleaner and various cleaning aids that should be hidden away from sight. I got very sick of looking at these things while showering. They are ugly. I don’t want to look at ugly things while showering, and I don’t want my bathroom to look at a storeroom. Plus, the vacuum cleaner gets wet every time I hit the showers, which can’t be good for the vacuum cleaner.
It was time to put up a shower curtain to hide San Lang’s toilet of my dreams. I had a bunch of Ikea curtain wires stored away somewhere, but I decided against using those because I didn’t like the way they look. They also take too long to install. This solution costs less than $5, and took less than 10 minutes to install.
Ideally you would want to use eyelet hooks in place of the two small hooks, but I just used what I had available. You will need to fit the small hook screws into the tension wire, so make sure you buy the right size.
Drill the holes, insert the wall plugs, and screw the two large hook screws into the walls. I needed pliers here to screw them in all the way.
Cut the spring tension wire to a length that is shorter than the distance between your two walls. You’ll want it short enough to get enough tension in the wire, so your curtains do not sag.
I generally reject free gifts but the other day we bought something at Homefix and they gave me this Black and Decker t-shirt. I love it!
Our nifty, cheap, and elegant curtain wire.
The actual shower curtain is $2 from Daiso. I now shower in peace.
