for real

·
once upon a time there were {plenty of} ladies that put a toe in deep water. the water was called cyberspace, and the depth of it never scary. the no limits factor at times bewildering, one needs to touch base also, and meet up. for real.

{i hope to meet you ALL, for real. i think this will happen too.}

ingrid and patrice were there, at piet hein eek's in eindhoven (nl). 
oh ~ my ~ god
as much for our meeting, as for the MAN, who was in his shop {us lucky birds} and whose grasp we fell for : his creativity, his design, his vision, his quirks. his furniture.
