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.

Thanks, kittens.

For those who don't recognize what that is, amidst the carnage... That used to be my original, not reproduction, original glass having, painfully restored by hand Noguchi coffee table.

Oh my goodness, that's REALLY broken :-(
Glad you haven't killed the cats, although it must have been really tempting :-(

It was a huge crash. I will have to refinish the base AGAIN (the lacquer was shattered). Replacing the glass will be about $1kUSD that I don't have.

omfg. What a fucking disaster. I'm so sorry, Elf. Your heart must have sunk all the way into the floor when you saw that. Congrats on not killing the kittens, it would have been tempting.
