Space -


    I heard  Alain de Botton interviewed today on his new book The Architecture of Happiness.  It sounds fascinating on considering how we choose and respond to organization of space.  I ordered it and I now have The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan here, and I understand it is a must-read.   Steve and I are leaving for Hawaii next Wednesday and all the books I haven't had time to read are piling up anxious to go on a trip.

    I bought my 2007 calendar, since the new year is beginning to fill.  I like filling in the birthdates of family and friends, and I see that a good many people I know will celebrate on Tuesday this year, and, there are some Wednesdays also, and other days.  I like seeing how the year coheres.

    My calendar this next year will celebrate The Group of Seven.   "In 1920, a small community of Canadian artists officially became the Group of Seven.  The catalog from their first exhibit stated:  "The seven artists whose pictures are here exhibited ... are all imbued with the idea that an Art must grow and flower in the land before the country will become a real home for its people."   I love that thought and intention.   Here is to art in all its forms and manifestations.   May each day create and flower, within, and without.

    I also read today that the space after a period is now just that, a space.   Remember when we used to skip two spaces.  It seems we no longer are to do that, though I must admit, I still do.  I like space around my sentences, my car, my view.
