Procrastination and perfectionism can sometimes seem so conventional and normal.

One rest-area on Interstate-89 has a green-house and a water purification plant – both are housed in this octagonal glass-house.
I kept it to myself as I was not even clear about what was intriguing about it. It took me a few days for all the ideas to fall into place. So, when I excitedly told anyone who would listen about my idea,
