...divine connections

This past week was unusually busy and I am thankful that everything was kept together. I do my part to try to remember every detail but there must be something more. Sheers were installed as was the corner TV shelf that I designed to a delighted birthday girl DJ. The beach job went well also, as I fit an 11' x 13' area rug, runner, Club Chair and Ottoman, 23 window treatments, framed sailboat art, tool boxes and sugar free energy drinks into my truck and 'sailed' over the Commodore Barry Bridge and onto Ocean City, NJ. Traffic was sparse at that early hour so I made excellent time. Everything fit, coordinated and connected well. Have you ever heard of laminins? Me either, until MB educated me on the subject. Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue. They are literally what hold us together being cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. The photo today shows 'design' in it's most intricate form and it has nothing to do with drapery or custom area rugs. Do you think that it's shape is a coincidence? Have a good day, keep your senses open to divine connections and do your best to keep it all together. Oh, on this day in 1946, Father Divine, a controversial religious leader who claimed to be God, married the much-younger Edna Rose Ritchings, a celebrated anniversary in the International Peace Mission movement.
