There has been some commentary on social media recently questioning the use of the Japanese Geisha as a reference for design. It has been called out as what some see as the glorification of women serving men. I find this perspective incredulous. It is clear that this statement precludes knowledge of the Geisha culture.

That storm defies the fact that summer is over even if this weekend is the … Read More
It’s funny how the generations roll over on each other. There seems to be this timeless lock, inexplicable in its emotional impact, but clarified by the familial items that anchor our memories. I have been thinking a lot about my mother since my grandson was born. She was such a wonderful grandmother: we used to call her Mary Poppins. There she would be, crawling on the floor under a card table fort in her perfectly … Read More
