Midweek Meditation -- The Bag and the Magnet

 "In all object making, that aspect which relates to its conceptual interpretation is art, that which relates the object to an intended purpose is design, and the quality of its execution is craft."  -- Hella Basu

I must warn you, gentile reader, that I am likely to repeat this quote.  I came across it about a year ago.  I copied it and printed it; and it has been held by a magnet (depicting a sunflower painting by Van Gogh) on my refrigerator ever since.
I like knowing that other people (besides myself) think about such things.
I am not really saying that the designer bag is "art".  But together with the quote, it gives me something to think about.  (And then there is the magnet...)


  1. That is a great bag - what a lovely gift! LOVE the quote.

  2. I am a Namasta bag-junkie. I have about everything they have made.
