“word to the wise” wednesday: ann gish

Luxury is totally personal and individual.  You can’t homogenize it:  What’s luxury to me is not necessarily luxury to you.  For me, having my kitchen cleaned every day would be a luxury.  For somebody else, it would be going into their bedroom and seeing a shimmering, beautiful bed.  Time – that would be my personal luxury, so I could just go wandering.  The English call it “slobbing.”
