the bitten apple


steve jobs, the film, was screening at soho house.  i hardly watch films lately, but this was an opportunity to learn a bit about steve jobs the man, albeit from a hollywood perception.  the film left me with the impression that something of the story surely must not be fiction.   because of him, we have an appendage- the iPhone.  a few days ago in ny, i passed by the apple store on 5th avenue, and the massive apple outside looked so crisp and iconic.  but mostly so tempting.  i was reminded of the similarities in latin of the words mălum for apple, and malum for evil.  eve convinced adam to take a bite of the forbidden fruit in the garden of eden,  steve jobs sold us the iPhone.  the bitten apple is the clever logo.  steve jobs gave us the apple bitten, and convinced or not, we have swallowed the bitten apple.  this bitten apple is not the voluntary bite for thebestdressup now!

don’t think about it…

we do think.  at times just too much; and not necessarily about what makes us happy.   we think about everything else.  and yet, whatever it is that makes us happy is actually just the thing to do.  it is that simple.  it’s not something to be thinking about.  just do what makes you happy.  it’s just a moment.  this moment is just the best moment to do what makes you happy.  happy.  don’t think about it.  do what makes you happy.  doing what makes you happy is just the best for thebestdressup now!

in conversation

in conversation, we are told, religion and politics don’t mix.  subjects to be avoided.  best to address the weather.  consequently, i find the climate at the right temperature to be in conversation addressing religion and politics.  this could be just the best climate impact change.  in conversation, religion and politics found a flow for thebestdressup now!

even outside of italy

it was ferragosto, even outside of italy.  ferragosto is an italian holiday that takes place on the 15th of august, and it celebrates the summer vacation.  it also coincides with the religious day of the assumption.  on this day, cities in italy quiet down, and the countryside and seaside resorts are filled to capacity.  to enjoy ferragosto, friends and family gather to share the moment.  but as traditions live in us, even outside of italy, we can celebrate ferragosto.  those who share their traditions, keep them well and alive even outside of italy.  it was a luvFAB grand ferragosto even outside of italy.  sharing last night, kept ferragosto inside thebestdressup now!

it’s all about the bosphorus

i was quite perplexed by its intricate overall beauty.  last month in istanbul, i kept telling myself that there was something most appealing and attractive about this city, but i could not with exactitude pin down what it was.  and then it became apparent that for me, it’s all about the bosphorus.  istanbul, between two continents, is rich in history, yet i find the historical and geographic significance of the bosphorus so utterly fascinating.  the bosphorus joins the sea of marmara with the black sea and divides turkey between asia and europe.  it’s all about that spectacular bosphorus.  istanbul is.  and yet, it’s all about the bosphorus for thebestressup now!
