These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

As promised, this is the only photo of Nora I believe I have.

I didn't take it- I think one of her kids did. She had given it to me to use for a design
project (I was designing an assisted living facility at the time.)I'd known Nora my whole life. And in the past several years, though her mind was perfectly fine, her body had begun to become more and more fragile. She had help at home for a few hours a day, but eventually, it was safer for her to move out of her apartment (She'd probably been there for near 50 years.) and into a care facility.Though the people who moved into her apartment are very nice, it's just not the same. And now that she's really gone, I'm just very sad. :(
