The concept of Innocence, and the concept of the Fall
Innocence is ignorance - but how is it lost? It is not my intention to report here all the ingenious and absurd hypotheses by which the beginning of history has been encumbered by thinkers and speculators who only out of curiosity are interested in this great human affair we call "sin". I do not do so, partly because I would not waste other people's time by reciting that on the learning of which I have wasted my own time, and partly because the whole thing lies outside of history in the twilight where witches and speculators ride a race on broomsticks and sausage-pegs.

Upon driving around the countryside Matti and I discovered an old barn selling rotting randomness and to our pleasure we came upon the most delightful box of old buttons with fading colours and chipping and rusting. These buttons are another inspiration for our collection now. Especially the colours... is this innocent enough?
