Funeral For Domino

It is with a heavy heart that we must say goodbye to one of the best decorating magazines I have known. This March 2009 issue of Domino will be its last. The website, too will face sudden death. 

In honor of the magazine that merged home design with shopping; home goods with chic; and eco with practical, here is a bit ripped from the Robert Frost poem 'Home Burial':

"There, you have said it all and you feel better.
You won't go now.  You're crying.  Close the door.
The heart's gone out of it: why keep it up?
Amy!  There's someone coming down the road!"

"You—oh, you think the talk is all.  I must go—
Somewhere out of this house.  How can I make you——"

"If—you—do!"  She was opening the door wider.
"Where do you mean to go?  First tell me that.
I'll follow and bring you back by force.  I will!—"

                                                         Robert Frost

Domino, if I could bring you back by force I would! Farewell my friend!
