SEP 4, 15 .. A 94-SQUARE-FOOT STUDIO APARTMENT CAN BE A CHALLENGE ..

Before I left my studio apartment to come here to the Hong Kong City Hall Library I was having this super-intense dream. I was dreaming that I was surrounded by Asians. Every where I looked were Asians. In my dream I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Asians on a Hong Kong Tram.

Then suddenly one-of-them moved to get off the tram and pushed-into-me!!

I asked .. “Where am I?” .. one of them said .. “You are on a tram in Hong Kong Central.”

It was so real I could not believe it. Funny huh?

The below scenes were NOT A DREAM ..

If we were to have a fire-drill or an actual emergency I would be challenged to be able to get out of my door ..

    Suffice to say, I have seen your THINGS have an amazing ability to s t r e t c h out, multiply, flail about, clutter, and TAKE OVER. And, having lived in the flat with you last spring, I know the only surface you have upon which to “organize” your things IS the bed. I also know you have an absolutely uncanny way of corralling everything and making them behave!

    What a beautiful day September 4th is in Hong Kong compared to September 2nd. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TOMORROW SEPTEMBER 5TH!!!!! Love, Patti
