Dream Job! Just watching the trailer sent me into spasms of excitement.

Catch snippets of the show where they follow Keith Johnson, buyer-at-large for Anthropologie, on his treasure hunts in France, India, South America, Turkey, Tunisia, UK, Argentina, and Holland here.

"Gas released by a dying star races across space at more than 600,000 miles an hour, forming the delicate shape of a celestial butterfly." - Hubble site

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe...

I can't believe I've missed this all the time it's been out. All I can say is if you're going to click 'play' now, you have to watch it to the end, because there is no point otherwise. Not for this there isn't.

The very first piece from my dressmaking endeavour! I'm onto my third piece now, and along the way, I find that I've really relished the opportunity to design and have everything go exactly my way (or you can say I get to unleash my inner control freak). The way I've felt is perfectly encapsulated by what Faythe Levine, creator of documentary, Handmade Nation, expresses in an interview in Frankie magazine.

"My personal belief is if you are making something by hand then that itself is a political act. We are living in a disposable society and we have so much being thrown at us of how we're supposed to live and how our house is supposed to look and what we're supposed to wear, and so when you are stepping away from that and taking control over your life to make something yourself, I believe that's a very quiet political act."

This supplement came with the September issue of Korean Vogue Girl. Calling itself a Traditional Lifestyle Guide Book, I would say it is my kind of lifestyle indeed. And pity that it is that I can't understand the Korean content, I'm happy enough just looking at the pictures.

about me

email me



I lean my head slowly to the side, reflect on the camellia on the moss of the temple, reflect on a cup of tea, while outside the wind is rustling the foliage, the forward rush of life is crystallised in a brilliant jewel of a moment that knows neither plans nor future, human destiny is rescued from the pale succession of days, glows with light at last and, surpassing time, warms my tranquil heart.
