Autumn in Our Gardens
We're wrapping up fall installs and taking a moment to appreciate what's going on at headquarters, a place that in many ways is a proving and testing ground for client spaces. So, let's take a quick trip through the fall colors and snow (the third earliest snow of over one inch on record).

Pyramid scams have become so rampant everywhere that people are now afraid to talk to each one another including their closest friends. We are always afraid that we are going to be recruited or sold something. I think it will be nice when we can return to a time where people are exchanging invitations just for neighbours and families to visit their garden and maybe have a tea party. It's nice to have amaranthine conversations about almost anything. It's not a good feeling to hold back. We don't need to be drunk all the time to do this. We just have to forget our prejudices once in a while and consider that it is really human nature to socialize and this fear of getting scammed should not stop us from being polite and courteous to one another.

No one had to fit in any category. I mean no one should be obliged to do so. Even so, if we are to look at the bigger picture, boxes make all lives affected less stressful. One might think it is glorious to always be a non conformist or keep acting and thinking outside the box. Enter a room without any boxes and all you will see is a truckload of clutter. It's all nothing but an eyesore. Boxes are there to restore order. You need to have compartments so you will know where you will place which and what. You can always take it out anytime you like. You are still in control. As long as you are in control of when to open these boxes then there really is no issue.

I don't get why would anyone name their sons or daughters "Autumn". It seems this season is just too sad. I get it. Dried leaves are really beautiful. I wouldn't want to be beautiful but dead though. Some want that. Still I wouldn't force that on kids. I am sure for children Summer is the only season that matters most because it's the time for swimming and kids just love swimming. I don't know any kid that does not like to waddle in the waters. Maybe autumn have these flow too. Spring does not sound right on anyone. Maybe that's the only reason too.
