What about the Vietnamese Nail salon? That looks awful small.

A cafe in a former barbershop? How good can it be if they couldn't even take the time to change the sign on the building?

That is one gigantic flat-screenish thing they have going out front there. How much more pregnant with possibility can one be?

Ann made a point in an earlier post that has been coming back to me:

"...I scoffed at the 70s era women's movement, because I was a bohemian, not someone keen on joining the middle class or getting rich. I finally went to law school in 1978 because I had a hunger to do things with words and I wanted to have enough money to be able to have children. Through the whole thing, including up until this moment, I have seen myself as an artist, a bohemian, and out of place in the legal culture. I'm not like those women in the 70s, etc., who caught a wave to success."

I think there are a great many people like her (and me), who are one thing - how they view themselves, and do something else in the interests of putting food on the table, giving one the financial freedom to express one's self. What is done for material sustenance is not entirely without interest, but it is not on the level of what one is.

That is, in Ann's case (and I'm using her words as an example only), she clearly is interested in conlaw and devotes a great deal of time to it, but expressing herself in words and images is her real passion.

In the same way, I enjoy programming, but there are other things that hold my interest and which are my true interests.

I think this is much more common among people than those whose work is also what they are. Maybe not an original thought, but I was struck by the chord her point made in me.

Just sayin'.

But shouldn't that flat-screenish thing be turned inwards? Otherwise all the potential customers would stay outside on the street instead of getting (and paying for) new-dos inside.

We had one in town here for a while named "Curl up and Dye".
Just sayin'.
