the little things...

things are quiet on this side. i haven't been up to much. we had rain storms today. it hasn't rained so hard and so long for a long time. while sleeping last night i dreamed of the rain banging into the windows. so nice to be warm and cosy inside.

i've a little trip this weekend, really little, 2 days. i'll go and visit a friend and celebrate a birthday. i love traveling, even if it is a little travel. what to pack, right? i'll pack a little bag. i might keep it simple and classic; black slacks and a nice white shirt, kinda kathryn hepburnish...

how are you these days? i hope well. i'm alright. nothing special, but in a way it all seems quite beautiful. love it!

know what? i think of you and wonder what you are up to sometimes... i really do.

lush life

there is an expression... life is not a dress rehearsal...

...when referring to life itself, that this life is not the practice go round, so let's live as fully as we possibly can. and as the lovely dianne carol once said so beautifully, it takes a minute to try and figure out how to live in the way of our dreams.

when i see lady gaga, i always think what she is wearing and doing is interesting. some of it i like, and some of it i dislike... but i think, at least she's not saving it for the real thing. when i see her she's full on.

she shared a bit about her creative process, how she wakes up in the morning and begins her designs, or writing songs, and putting together what has been presented to us as lady gaga.

thing is, it reminds us to play and have fun at the stuff we love...

speaking of playing, can you imagine playing at painting. i did make the georgia o'keeffe exhibit and it was quite beautiful. i adore the way she painted with such lush colours and abstract images, the way the paint seemed to swim across the canvas in the most sensual and sweetest of pinks and greens, blues and creams...

i'm hoping you are having the most lucious day lovely!!

taste the air

i do keep Haiti on my mind. i'm deeply pleased about the response for help from seemingly all corners of the globe. there's a spirit in the air to lend help in the form of prayers, well wishes, material, monetary, and physical and intellectual doings. there's something special about this horrific moment in haiti's already troubled history, there seems to be little judgement. so many just want to lend a hand as best they can. i like this.
there are some people from louisiana that say that after the horrors of hurricane katrina, louisiana is coming back and is better than it was before disaster came. better than before in terms of quality building and infrastructure, as well as a healthy wake-up call for the suffering of folks. it's a long wake-up call, but it seems that many are getting it.
last night before drifting off to sleep i came across this poem that i'll share with you if you don't mind. when i read it, i thought... yup, that's it...
september twelfth, 2001
two caught on film who hurtle
from the eighty-second floor,
choosing between a fireball
and to jump holding hands,
aren't us. i wake beside you,
stretch, scratch, taste the air,
the incredible joy of coffee
and the morning light.
alive, we open our eyelids
on our pitiful share of time,
we bubbles rising and bursting
in a boiling pot.
by x.j. kennedy
i hope you and yours are sweet and well. do have a nice weekend. i'm off to catch the georgia o'keefe exhibit at the whitney museum. tomorrow is the last day, so i haven't completely waited 'til the last minute;)
i'm thinking of you... thanks a big bunch for the thoughts you've share in connection to my previous posts. i like so much our diverse ways of sending and sharing good thoughts...
bisou you!!

haiti on my mind.
i'm thankful for doing well.
there are brothers and sisters facing devastation in haiti. may we help, and share with one another genuinely, always, not only in times of crises...
in times of crises i so often feel at a loss for how to help. i know nothing. information is shared saying help can be lended here http://www.redcross.org

glam squad

ok i'm lazy when it comes to getting dressed, but i'm working on it. i wake up and ask meself, what to wear today? i adore pretty things, but i can't be bothered to think about it. maybe it has to do with doing the corporate thing for so many years. a sleek tahari soft green suit, cream coloured silk blouse, silk hose and patent leather pumps; my uniform in various shades, hues and fabrics. i did it for years, and now am simply lazy...
dinner and a movie tomorrow night with what i call the glam squad. some of the sweetest people who lead glamourous lives are having dinner tomorrow night, and i'm wondering what to wear.
i'm no fan of kate moss (above) don't know why, just a feeling, and i know nothing about her, but i like her look. add a few pounds (i'm not tiny like her, cause i likes me chocolates, but i'm alright i think) and i would love to rock something comfy and cool and cute like this... hmmm, think i'll think about it...

rockn' and rolling

whoa! one of those mornings. they say you know you are getting older when you wake up and feel like you have a hangover and you haven't been drinking. think i ate something yesterday that left me stomach a little funny and me head groggy. i like to sip my tea calm and sweet in the morning. this morning i felt like i needed a little something stronger to bring me out of my grogginess and clear me head.

i've some tea from london. for some reason their stuff is strong (at least for me). i distinctly remember buying it in a gorgeous little tea shop in london. the lady there was so pretty amongst all the teas and pretty things. i remember as she was ringing my purchase up thinking 2 things; 1. that she is so pretty. and 2. how long will this tea last me until i can come to london again.

i'm finding instead of stretching the goods, i'll just have to visit london and me other favs more often.

the picture above reminds me so much of the eighties. i had my very first job while in school working in manhattan, down in greenwich village. i was in awe of the vibe down there. punk rockers were everywhere with their purple and green and pink hair. loved it! felt like i was on another planet.

been a while since i've connected with you... i dew plan to drop in!!

hope your day is sweet... and you are well...
