More Than They Seem
Stripes. Yes. Stripes. Under the surface of that smooth body of brown, where we rarely look, are geometrically perfect stripes. Like the rococo lining of the haberdasher’s most conservative jacket, the underside of the acorn’s tidy brown vest is magnificently striped. Dig. Scrape. Turn it over. Things and our beloveds are more than they seem. Houses we are considering buying are as well.
