I am so happy that Muji is just blocks from my new apartment. It is one of my all-time favorite design emporiums. About ten years ago, Martha and I were in Japan and she introduced me to this fantastic store. I remember filling one entire suitcase with white sponges, clear plastic boxes, the absolute perfect cotton cardigans in ten colors, and alarm clocks that look great on any bedside table (among many other fabulous things). Over the years, Martha and I have traveled to Japan many times and each time we have visited our favorite haunt. Now all I have to do is run down the street. How lucky am I?
