the flooding in thailand

today my post will digress from the usual focus on design.  

those of you who follow my blog know that i moved to isaan, the farmlands of thailand, 4 months ago.  our home is safe.  i am very thankful.  however, 1/3 of thailand is underwater, over 300 people have died, & the waters are still rising.

so today, instead of fixating on your sheets that aren't quite the right shade, focus on having a dry place to sleep.  

home is transient.
