“If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart.” -Cesar Chavez
What's the craic? "Craic" is an old Irish term referring to the mood of conviviality and kinship that accompanies an evening of talking, drinking, celebrating, bragging; that moment when everyone's participating, throwing in, and the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts.
Spaces and objects to turn up our downtime.
Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast.
Any creature that lives on land might want a table to put things off the ground, might want a bed to sleep in, cabinets to stash stuff in. But the chair; only the chair is made for that singular and varied form: The human body.
“Nothing is yours. It is to use. It is to share. If you will not share it, you cannot use it.”
