I think this is one of the most perfect Japanese concepts I've ever seen in action.

I think this philosophy also applies to people, in a way. I take it to mean that the bumps in the road from which we've suffered and recovered can give us more depth and compassion, making us more beautiful.

This is the time of year I get antsy, wanting to do things around the house to freshen it up. This year, the itch is pretty bad, since we've been in this house for nine years and it's time to re-paint and get moving on those million little maintenance things which seem to endlessly need doing.

Of course, my desires often outstrip my budget, but I keep dreaming and collecting ideas, anyway!

Reality is overrated, right?

You can go here to see my treasury list of neat home improvement ideas. Feel free to "admire," like, share and whatever!

Halloween Poster Collection

I find myself wishing for a larger office or studio space, so I can put up all the full-size movie posters I want and not run out of space or have it look cluttered. I find it ironic that I yearn for the simplicity of the traditional Japanese home, yet I keep wanting stuff. Typical American consumer, I guess...

Here are some of the posters related to the 1978 release, John Carpenter's Halloween I'd love. I've included a few posters from what I like to call the "alternate universe," also known as fan art.
