Five for Friday
1. a Friday should start off with a little colour:
From Moscow Design Week – Sit in my face:
2. Or maybe something from Design*Sponge?
3. Or maybe something from the Kitchn – they call them cupcakes but they are pretty clearly muffins.
4. Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir makes pretty things.
BY CHARLES SIMIC
In my great grandmother’s time,
All one needed was a broom
To get to see places
And give the geese a chase in the sky.
The stars know everything,
So we try to read their minds.
As distant as they are,
We choose to whisper in their presence.
Take a clock that has lost its hands
For a ride.
Get me a room at Hotel Eternity
Where Time likes to stop now and then.
Come, lovers of dark corners,
The sky says,
And sit in one of my dark corners.
There are tasty little zeroes
In the peanut dish tonight.
