CULULOO, CULULOO

 (Wedding bells ringing)

We may not have a magnet on the refrigerator from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding… though it could have been nice to take a picture with Aunt Elizabeth, wearing ridiculous five-storey hats.

YES / NO, BLACK / WHITE

Purim (aka Jewish Halloween) is the most intriguing psychological experiment that takes place here every year.

Think about it, we all wear costumes and masks just to get free and bring our real selves to the world without filters and protections.

If we experience this liberation, joy and lightheartedness … Why isn’t every day Purim?!

I will leave the personal interpretation of filters and masks to each and every one of you, but it turns out that even with regard to fashion and design, most of us prefer our reality monotonous – yes / no, black / white.
