Love Poem

I am not ready for dark    dear friend    I shout    and we walk

  • underground    a tiny city roars over    a tiny city below    and
  • it is hard to say this    I am dead tonight    I had been practicing
  • walking light    and slow    through a museum    the imaginary
  • groves    and turning to love you    rough like a clever boy but I
  • am dead tonight    friend    O kill me I am dead

  • Which Watch Which Watch

    Watch sol by shin azumi

    I read this post about the newest in watch design on Design Boom. This one is called Sol by Shin Azumi. You can read about an experiment called untrod:

    untrod is a project which collaborates with international designers on various project themes – the first theme is 'watch'. designers have been asked to investigate the possibility of
    bringing new meanings to the conventional form of a watch. these are the initial design concepts, so only renderings are available for some pieces.

    This one has the basic elements of the wrist watch as we know it. Some are much further from the norm. For the complete story, click here.
