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 ...

  Ballet has always been close to my heart.  I had lessons for 15 years as a girl.  The best way to enjoy ballet is to see it performed in a theater - nothing quite matches a live performance because ballet requires an audience to give it life.  The excitem...

Spring's Blithe Spirit
Pussy willows are such a pleasant harbinger of spring.  Soft as kittens' ears but built on sturdy stalks they are the essence of spring's changeableness.  They used to be plentiful when I was a girl but now I only see them in the shops.  Mom loved when we b...

April, Come She Will
A dear friend sent me the most beautiful CD of clear lilting music.  She listens to it during facials and bought two copies, one for me.  Track two is particularly lovely - it's music I imagine as the backdrop to some of my favorite April films.  I hear it ...

Walk Away Renee
A few years ago, I stumbled upon a song that I suddenly realized is forever part of my life's soundtrack.  When it came on the radio that day, I was instantly transported to my hometown's Main St. walking with friends, all of us wondering and anticipating, ...

Cape Town
  When I buy something online, I always like to read the reviews first.  They can tip you off to mistakes waiting to happen.  But most reviews I find, are quite positive.  Best of all, some of them are well-written - even engrossing, and like a good salesma...

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...

Fine Things
This photo is from an ad I clipped from Glamour Magazine in 1970's.  I just love the sterling silver resting gently in her hands and entwined with a single rose.  Her nails are pretty too.  The copy told a little tale of a new wife who didn't buy the dress ...

Daisy Chain
My passion for daisies knows no bounds and I'm spotting the free-spirited perennial on nearly everything around me.  Yesterday I uncovered a vintage silk scarf by famed scarf designer, Vera, peeking out from a basket of books at the junk shop near work.  It...

The Power of Tea
There are no less than three tea shops in the neighborhood where my new job is located.  My favorite is a rather plain little spot that is wonderfully quiet and peaceful.  A young man waits on me everyday and he looks at me with growing curiosity and amusem...
