My Tiffany's
Holly Golightly said that nothing very bad can happen to a person at Tiffany's.  I second that.  The real world slips away and we are lost in fantasy and beauty and like Holly, we feel safe. I'm not talking about physical safety because sadly, that's never ...

Seventeen Summer
No matter what age I was, all my summers were Seventeen Summers.  They were filled with the glories depicted in what I consider Seventeen Magazine's golden years (1960's - 1970's).  Neither cell phones or iTunes were part of my Seventeen Summers.  We had sm...

Room With A View
I had a co-worker/friend who wanted me to meet her parents and so one lunch hour she took me to their apartment.  The first thing I noticed was a still life collection on top of the hi-fi in the living room.  There sat pictures of my co-worker and her siste...

The In-Between
I have long adored J.M. Barrie's tale of Peter Pan and I was charmed when Peter said he would wait for us in the space between sleep and awake, where dreams are remembered and love lives on.  My brother called that drowsy spot BooBoo Land, a cozy suspended ...

**
This picture for a designer faucet stopped me in my tracks.  I have felt this way most of my life. Well, at least since I first dipped into Little Women, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and the novels of Jane Austen.  The modern woman peering at an 18th centu...

Better Days Ahead
Many years ago, a friend whose life I thought perfect, let me read a card her husband had given her.  Inside was a simple handwritten, "Better days ahead".  Apparently, as I was to learn, my friend's marriage had been in desperate trouble for a long time an...

Two Mothers
I'm always a little sad when Mother's Day ends.  I have enough self-knowledge to know it's the passage of time that gently tugs at my heart.  Quickly go the years... These two ladies were neighbors for almost thirty years.  The photo was taken last summer a...

Can I see you?
I love the written word and when a man writes, I listen (or read) -  especially if he is articulate.  I fell in love when a man once wrote to me, "I'm going to hit the rack".  He could have said, "I'm going to bed" but his phrase charmed me and belied his m...

The Warmth of Winter Perfumes
Winter is a heady time for the senses:  frosty cold, pristinely white landscapes, soft cashmere, the glow of firelight, comforting soups, and rich warming perfumes.  Choosing fragrances with opulent spicy undertones mirrors our cravings for soothing restora...

Winter Musings
Charity begins at home...and so does kindness.  When I need to make changes in myself, mostly in regards to fitness and well-being, I am far more successful when the changes become a source of pleasure and not torture.  And it begins with being gentle and k...

On the Twelfth Day of a Feminine Christmas
I love this elegant image of a woman in a Christmas green knit dress and a friendly reindeer.  The deep forest green and red shoes (and hair) make for a lovely Christmas picture.  It alludes to a rich deep plaid of beautiful red, green, and gold.  A friend ...
