The foolishness of things

"Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things."
from The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo

Welcome to my home
this is the cabinet that you see as you enter my house -
on it an ever changing display of "the foolishness of things."
a vintage celadon vase, a Venetian mask, incense, books, some strands of beads,
and two hearts covered with vintage buttons and shells -
"There are no little things. Little things are the hinges of the universe."
- Fanny Fern
Thanks for stopping by.
