I have hired a woman to come and help me sort through the layers of French General - funny how I have actually accumulated so many scraps of just the right shade of coral, stacks of old photographs, imitation flies, spools of old trim, pressed and dried edelweiss leaves (should I keep going?) - and miraculously I am shedding the layers away. I think the lightbulb went off when Deva made piles - inspiration, document scraps, won't let go of, old paper, Sofia's art, etc. What a concept - organizing piles of stuff. Actually, when Molly and I worked together, she was great at this - the in and out box, the hardware peg board - it was all there. Molly always said "I'm just setting up systems - you have to implement them". I guess that's my problem - I'm not very good at keeping up with the systems!
Anyway - I'm getting there. We open in a week - the countdown has begun.
