At times (usually midterm season) I have dreamt of moving to France and becoming an apprentice at one of the Hermès ateliers. I imagine it to be rather peaceful, although I am not good with detailed and precise work with my hands. There are very few people I know that are capable of making one thing start to finish by hand and hold up the finished product proudly.
My Bill Cunningham New York DVD is on its way and I can't wait for the extra features.
