I Capture the Castle
The title of this post is from the marvelous book by Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle .  The story is dreamy and funny and shimmers like a crystal bowl in a shaft of sun.  A timelessness clings to the pages but it reads as though it were written yesterday ...

A Father's Kiss
I love this beautiful photograph of a father and son.  The dad's arms are so strong and handsome as they encircle his small child.  The picture is dated July 4, 1957, so I know it is Independence Day and I am willing to bet that's a hotdog in the boy's hand...

Wish You Were Here
I like to take a little something home with me each time I go to the beach.  Sometimes I find a pretty piece of sea glass or a perfect creamy white shell.  These little talismans stay on my desk for a while or the windowsill in the kitchen.  But eventually,...

A Morning Letter...

Seven Daffodils
Today I left my handbag in the grocery cart at the market.  I remember pushing the cart into a train of other carts and then driving home.  I didn't notice for several hours that my purse was missing until I went searching for my cell phone which is always ...

The Custom of Compacts
I watched poignant documentary a few weeks ago on public television called Tea Time .  It followed five Chilean women who have been gathering together once a year for tea since graduating from high school over 60 years ago. They take turns hosting the teas ...

Summer Skies and Lullabies
As we await the delivery of wedding photographs, we are reminiscing about our happy day. Sunday morning dawned with a smokey fog but by noon, the skies peeled back to reveal a lovely Wedgewood blue -  the color that transforms other hues into something vibr...

I Can Row a Boat...
This sweet black and white is mostly likely Central Park.  It reminds me so much of the Boston Public Garden and the lagoon where my grandmother often took me for summer swan boat rides when I was a girl.  I was always put in a pretty pastel dress with whit...

I Will Tell You
Recently I changed my name to my maiden one.  When I went to the social security office, the clerk glanced down at my divorce decree, quickly looked up at me and asked, "What took you so long?" I had kept my husband's name to make things easier for my daugh...

At Home with Madam Chic
This is the perfect picture for Mother's Day.  And it charmingly continues my infatuation with ballet as Mother is wearing toe shoes.  I assume the silky pink shoes illustrate that she is executing arabesques in her daily round which includes washing hose a...
