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 ...

  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 ...

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...

Spring Miscellany
  Last month I saw the film The Woman in Gold with my daughter.  I was not expecting to be so swept away by the plight of Maria Altmann as she attempts to recover a Gustav Klimt painting of her aunt, Adele Bloch-Bauer.  The beautiful portrait was stolen fro...

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 ...
