Welcome to Rule of Three, a new blog about fashion, culture, design, food, health, fitness - really anything that strikes my fancy. That might sound a little self-indulgent, but what is a blog, if not a place where people go to hear themselves talk and then hope that they find an audience willing to listen, via the magical powers of the Internet. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
‘So why three?’ you ask. Well, three is really a fantastic number. According to Wikipedia, things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things (I ain’t lying. Check it out here). All manner of good things come in threes – The Three Musketeers, The Three Stooges, the Three Little Pigs.
They also say that bad things come in threes, which is sometimes true, but the point is, three has a really nice ring to it. Lists fit compactly into threes. Flowers and objets d’art look best in odd numbers (like three). And my Dad had a particular fondness for prime numbers, with 3 topping his list. So three it is.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a hard and fast rule. The three is kind of flexible. There may be three entries in a day. Or three thoughts in an entry. There may be three lessons learned, or three people interviewed. I’m not into fanaticism, more a fluid process of seeing what comes out.
So welcome. Thank you for reading. And enjoy the ride.
