I love the motto of DR Strings — “The Handmade String: Born in NYC, Wound Up in New Jersey” — that phrase constructs the current essence of my life and I simply find joy in all the musicality and rendering those few words tethered together can express.
That said, I have a new motto for the DR Tite-Fits — “Nagging Nanny State Strings” — and here’s why that motto fits as it bleeds:
Yesterday’s post concerning a Round, Edgeless Future pressed me into remembering how we are surrounded by circles but few of us realize their power.
Chains of events also create circles but even fewer of us are able to forge the connections to complete the meaning.
A circle is the original conundrum: What indicates everything and nothing at the same time?
We ride on circles. We hold hands and create two joined circles.
Circles remind us of who we are and where we began.
The other day I read an article discussing how, when architecture students are asked to design a “City of the Future,” they always draw round structures.
It seems having corners is “too old fashioned” and not “forward thinking” enough.
That design flaw — that only Round is good — is a stereotype that has been embedded in the young designers by popular culture and not by appropriate future need.
