Good cooks are never sad or idle—they work at fashioning the world, giving birth to the joy of the ephemeral; they are never finished celebrating festivals for the adults and the kids, the wise and the foolish, the marvelous reunions of men and women who share a room (in the world) and board (around the table). Women’s gestures and women’s voices that make the earth livable.

The culture of everyday life lies in the creative, discriminating use of the resources that capitalism provides.

-John Fiske

man, germans have the best lives.

they all wear nice scarves, and walk along the sidewalk, gleaming after rain, checking their mobile devices.  they use slim macs at their blonde wood desks, because they all work at design firms, and they have interesting friends, which they meet after work for tapas.  they have eclectic teapots, and french presses for coffee.  their cities are populated with stately stone edifices, which are surprisingly sleek on the inside, all plate glass and brushed nickel.

germans and scandinavians.  and patrick lichty. seriously, the best lives.
