On Fragile Thursday, a package came in the mail from D-Med, who is – despite the nipple talk in yesterday’s post– obviously a goddess. The package contained this brilliant coral cardigan and packet of the most delicious Traverse Bay Fruit Co. dried cherries. All other coral cardigans and dried cherries pale in comparison to these definitive items. In short, I am declaring them to be literal incarnations of the Platonic Ideal of each of these items.*
In celebration, I added my favourite casual skirt, the striped top I’ve only recently come to recognize as a neutral, easy shoes, and a load of accessories (still channeling Style Underdog, though in this case, I am the pale, pale copy of her Platonic Ideal). Then, I took a walk on the wild side and used a prop in one photo.

Even though one of my most charming and capable former students dropped by to chat for a bit yesterday, it was still a tough day work-wise. So, after this post, I’m stepping away from the keyboard for 24 hours. I wish it could be more, but the deadline approacheth, so this is all I can afford.
* For philosophic sticklers, I acknowledge that a literal incarnation of a Platonic Ideal is impossible (at least that’s what my limited knowledge of Platonic philosophy tells me). But I’m using this phrase in its more contemporary popular sense (i.e. a basic internet search taught me that the Platonic Ideal of a sandwich had been discovered, recently, in Britain).
Do you miss it when you’re gone?
Also, have you discovered any other Platonic Ideals on this plane?
