Never start on an enterprise that requires new clothes.
Last weekend I was told of the death (in a really nasty way) of the person I suspect was first to introduce me to the topic of the theme. I remember long discussions, my version being that “Of course you may need new clothes” and his “you NEVER need new clothes for something you try out”. I remember the laughter when I pushed him into a swimming pool to prove that not every outfit was appropriate for every activity.
After hearing about his death, I somehow just couldn’t go NEAR to my blog for days and days. All odd sub-consc
ious stuff, as I almost had my blog post planned in my head. So here it is, almost in time for the next weekend’s theme.
What an old stuck-in-the mud Thoreau must have been! His poor wife. No new clothes for parties, holidays etc.
What started me on the train of thought that brought about the theme was Felix Baumgartner’s record breaking sky-dive recently. It would have been impossible without his special pressurised suit.
