the Poetica salon

by POETICA Art and Antiques


I'm celebrating my birthday today and thought what better time to start a new tradition.  The theme is Salon - a fanciful idea that is ages old.   It is a gesture meant to facilitate meaningful, honest and  engaging conversation amongst a group of people and it was made especially popular by Proust.  The questions below are directly from or inspired by the Proust Salon book.

I'll ask the questions and if you feel Brave, Curious and Insightful please Respond.

Salon Questions:

What is your idea of happiness?

What is your present state of mind?

What is your favorite motto?

If not yourself who would you choose to be?

What do you most like about San Francisco?

If you could bottle up any aspect of San Francisco & share it with someone far away what would it be?

If you want to send them privately to me that 's ok too.  Traciteraoka@mac.com

Bonus:  Send a quirky photo of yourself too- -- not a requirement but I would Love It!.
