We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

All designed objects are propaganda for a certain way of life.
Sometimes we need to stop analysing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.

Welcome to our temporary website, deliberately simple, purely functional. It will improve visually later!
