Dear God, humans can be such strange creatures. But they sure do make some beautiful things. This bookcase for example. Sturdy, simple elegance. Would be perfect for displaying my glass and ceramic pieces. And see how humble it is? It doesn't need to shout. It doesn't compete with the pieces. Please let me have this. I'll be good.
On second thought, I'm feeling guilty being so selfish, asking you for something materialistic. Never mind, I know you have much more pressing problems. But it is groovy. I'm just sayin'. Your friend, Peggy.
