Leaps of faith

"If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time, and build your wings on the way down." -Ray Bradbury

Well, love affairs are delicious. Friendships make the world go 'round. And my business is growing. I've jumped, and I'm learning how to build better wings all the time. Isn't that all we can hope for? To jump and land softly, or at least not hard enough to kill us?

P.S. Added a new jacket to inventory. The Hunting Jacket has Asian influences (kimono sleeves), fluted rib and back details, button closure and a wacky print (see those pheasants? see the hunters trying to shoot the pheasants?).
