Change is not only good, it’s essential to your memory

Remember the pillows in your parents’ home? Of course you do. You saw the same ones for as long as you lived there. I know my mother so valued the “designer” at her furniture store that she bought exactly what was recommended when my parents moved us into our brand-new home. The burnt orange and bright olive nubby silk pillows were propped up on the moss green sofa and harvest gold club chairs.
