Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble. And 1:1.618.

 Today is several days into the city water ban. We are boiling water for things like washing dishes. The hope is that it won't last too much longer (i.e. we can stop boiling as of tomorrow). Whoops - there's the kettle!

Also, went to acupuncture today. It's always so relaxing, I end up trying not to fall asleep on the table! The table is made by a company called Golden Ratio Woodworks. I know nothing about them beyond that. The name just cracks me up. It seems to me that they are destined to succeed with a name like that, which is probably why they chose it.

When I was in college, I had a classmate who actually exceeded the perfect ratio. She was as beautiful as you could imagine. When I told my cousin about it, she laughed: "How can you climb to the top of the mountain and keep going up?" But there it was. Somebody had taken her measurements and everything. Amazing!

We've got this lovely piece of artwork in our bedroom made by Donna Amero, an artist at Local Colors. It features half of a nautilus shell that has been polished so that the stripes are gone and the lovely, shiny shell patina has been enabled to show through. I've seen the perfect ratio superimposed onto nautilus shells, and I figure that this may be the closest thing to perfection we have in our quirky little house. Actually, our house is quirkily perfect.

Thanks for reading, and see you next time!
