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.

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

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.

Though it looks split, it's actually quite securely glued. The split is the result of wood shrinkage, but it's totally structurally sound.

Now, I *could* make this seam invisible. I could totally fill and sand it no one would ever know it had been there. But this table really does have history. It's not a reproduction. It's an original, and as such I don't think it's right to fix an ordinary sign of age. The table *isn't* new. It's almost 60 years old. So I'm going to leave this be. So long as it's not affecting the structural stability of the table, it stays.

I agree, all things with style age gracefully :)
