by Alain de Botton
"Our designs go wrong because our feelings of contentment are woven from fine and unexpected filaments. It isn't sufficient that our chairs comfortably support us; they should in addition afford us a sense that our backs are covered, as though we were at some level still warding off ancestral fears of attacks by a predator. When we approach front doors, we appreciate those that have a small threshold in front of them, a piece of railing, a canopy or simple line of flowers or stones - features that help us to mark the transition between public and private space and appease the anxiety of entering or leaving a house."
Notice today your weavings in and out, and where you feel supported, defended, safe, and where exposed, and is that okay?
Today, I am feeling the lift of the helicopter - up and swoosh. It is like being the Nike symbol. I am lifting and swooshing through this day. I am a fall leaf, at play.
