Vintage Vertigo: Coffee Klatch Cuties
On a small and seemingly unattractive triangle-shaped plot in Antwerp, architect Sarah Poot built a modern family home. The result is truly remarkable in its simplicity, and hence it is regarded as the perfect example of affordable and compact living. Amidst the praise, Poot stands her ground as a female architect in a male-dominated industry. When my husband Wouter Aerts and I launched the idea to our family and friends, all thought we were crazy. For over 15 years the plot had been neglected. It was really small, in bad shape and not for sale when we first saw it.
As many of you know, I have had various attempts with our Forum. At one point, it was a wonderful place where we had such lively discussions and great debate. We shared recipes, ideas, asked and answered questions and really had some wonderful topics. All the while I was very impressed and happy how well we all got along even when we were on polar sides of a discussion. It felt very much like a place of friends.

Someone said the coffee klatch has replaced the office cooler as a place to talk over happenings, to gossip, or chat, in part because many of us are retired, unemployed, or working at home. One recent coffee topic has been sailing, something I know nothing about, but that sport has taken some serious hits lately.
