I’m in writing mode this week, madly working toward my July 31 deadline. On one hand I love the final push to get a book whipped into shape. On the other, I’ll be jubilant when it’s finished.

To keep myself sane and to prevent my shoulders and neck from seizing up, I’ve been taking little breaks to do gardening and housework. Of course I also need breaks to check email, and to periodically surf the net.

Yesterday I came across a blog with a photo of a cactus chair. Its formal title is “Prickly Chair” by designer Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers.

I love the humor and whimsy and the fun color combo. And although it would not work in my space, I would be drawn to sit in it if I saw it someplace else.

Or so I thought, until I saw this close-up.

If you go back and take a closer look at the first photo, you’ll see the seat is also prickly. This chair is obviously all about design and nothing about function, and that’s okay because it works.

And now it’s time for me to work and function, whether by design or not.

Until next time,
