Big Seeds

I'm reminded of the beautiful ideas of Tom Robbins who wrote Still Life With Woodpecker, Jitterbug Perfume, Another Roadside Attraction and other fun novels. From the man who invented terms like consensual reality and calling in well, who said,
"It's never too late to have a happy childhood," comes a conclusion that sounds like an introduction:

Pine Cones on the Tent

It's a cold, clear morning; the sun has come over the canyon wall, but you're still dozing around, when something hits the tent. Open the flap and the sun's in your face; the world is ready.

Let Amanda be your pine cone.

future fiber

Soon there will be all kinds of new natural textile materials replacing traditional fibers and leathers. There are fascinating developments using minerals, mushrooms, pineapple leaves, algae, even jellyfish and manure--imagine wearing those! It will be interesting to see (and feel and smell) how these will perform in different conditions and hold up over time, in both couture and decor.
