"What do you mean? I thought to myself, but I didn"t say anything because I knew she would probably explain.

"I mean, when I see something that is what it is, I get weak at the knees."

"What kind of things?" I ask.

"Anything. A pair of sunglasses that looks like a pair of sunglasses. No more, no less. Or a chair that looks like a chair. Straight up and down. You know exactly what it is, and you know what to do with it. You don"t see that very often."

"Or the other way around." Now she looked thoughtful. "Sometimes it"s like the olden days. You make do with what you"ve got, and you invent what you need. And sometimes you need to change things to make them more visible. A non-place. A place that is beautiful but nobody sees. Then you have to add something."
