Do I Need a Murphy Wallbed?
I just came back from a fabulous visit to my homeland, Norway (see About). When I emigrated those may years ago, the nation was just a land “up there under the eternal snow.” The economy was a notch above struggle and traveling to the exotic was given to sailors. Birds of Paradise and whispering palms belonged in dreams on frigid winter nights, exclusively.
Things have changed…drastically! Today Norwegians are on top of the heap, flushed with cash, passports filled with stamps from exotic places, and Audis in the garage. They have become a “Needless Society”. From my vantage point I can see questionable trade-offs. But as a visitor I’m hardly qualified to judge.
When I saw this expression for the first time, I realized what I’m up against when writing this blog. I’m writing about Murphy wallbeds, closet beds, vertical wallbeds, horizontal wallbeds, and the practicality of such product. Yet, in a Needless Economy, i.e. ”I-have-no-need-of-stuff attitude,” MY readers still buy stuff. Philosophize with me and ask yourself, “How lasting is the giddy feeling of indulging in a week’s vacation in, say, Europe, vs. changing out a stationary in-the-way rarely-used bed?”
Take the Vacation
…after you decide to go for a Murphy wallbed. While you are checking out old castles, or having pastry and a cup of coffee (no free refills, please!) for the equivalence of $ 35.00, http://www.mamis.no/ your wallbed is being installed back home, ready to give you a lasting thrill for your hard-earned money!
I wish you a great experience and lasting, exhilarating feelings!
Now you see it. Now you DON’T!
