Do I Have to Draw You a Picture

Ikornnes, Norway

Do I have to draw you a picture?

If I were speaking a foreign language I could understand — you don’t get it. But then, not everything translates. Jokes for instance. Or love, but love is its own language. So, too, the experience of sitting in a Stressless sofa or recliner, the ultimate in comfort.

Experience it, you’ll love it.

“Do I have to draw you a picture?”

It is my puzzled response to those who do not understand the extraordinary comfort of Stressless sofas and recliners. Designed in Scandinavia (Ikornness, Norway) and chock full of patented technology that is too hard to explain.

Trust me. No, don’t trust me. Try sitting in the Stressless Emily sofa right now. At Traditions Furniture in Downtown Overland Park, and in Wichita, and at other fine Stressless retailers from sea to shining sea.

More idioms when you don’t get the picture.

  1. Are you really that clueless?
  2. What planet have you been living on?
  3. Adrift on a raft in a fog in the endless sea?
  4. You are walking on a deck as thick as two short planks.
  5. Are we one sandwich short of a picnic?

Stressless, experience it to know it

Make it Easy

It has taken a long time for me to understand the lyrics to the Eagles hit song, Take it Easy. Time makes for a new way of looking at things. Perspective makes for insight; insight a new understanding.

Jackson Browne started writing this song but didn’t know how to finish it. “Writer’s block,” we used to call it. “Paralysis of analysis,” my Millennial daughter says.

At the time, Browne was living in an apartment in Los Angeles’ scruffy Echo Park neighborhood. Upstairs neighbor was Glenn Frey, who needed songs for his new band – the Eagles. The rest is history.

Of course, “take it easy” means many things to many people. “Make it easy” is much the same. We are in a digital age. With a multitude of social media sites available all of which is accessible through a single pocket device 24/7, the way we interact with each other has completely changed.

Communication is easy, it is just that there is so much of it.

It has become a new way of life.
