Comment of the Week
“This space, this year, seems to be gathering in anticipation of something big. Personally I feel the shallow, lifeless chaff of the previous decade fluttering away in preparation to better absorb what’s next. People seem to be coming to their senses about the superfluous nature of easily acquired stuff. Thanks for being the vanguard.”
