Now that is a good idea but It might get kind of expensive.

I came to that place on the road of life and decided the only way to nip it completely in the bud, is to simply, slow down in vital environments like the home where things can sometime be fragile to encounter physically. I'm sure some of us will have some mapping strategies that work just as well, but, speaking from experience, I never run in to anything anymore around the house. Your Friend Charles Atkins ----- Original Message ----- From: sgreenblatt76@xxxxxxxxx To: TABI <mailto:tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, September 16, 2009 9:00 AM Subject: [tabi] Avoiding Corners I just had a close encounter with a sharp corner within my house which resulted in a laceration, Band-Aid, and icepack. I have to admit to being lazy and not trailing along another wall for guidance but I just didn't feel like walking around so restricted. I'd like to know what recommendations anyone has to help avoid these dangerous obstacles in my home. I was thinking of some way to mark the floor around sharp corners to properly indicate I'm within a dangerous spot but I couldn't think of anything which would work. Alternately, I'd like to know if anyone has recommendations on how I can find some attractive barrier, like some cushioning, to put on those corners which would make them not so sharp and dangerous if I do encounter them unexpectedly. I appreciate all recommendations as I'm really tired of worrying about scarring my face on unexpected household accidents. Thanks!
