OH SATURDAY MORNINGS. A glorious time of sweatpants, sinking into the couch, and long sips of coffee. Bless your damned soul, Saturday morning. Stay forever – will ya? In my more aggressive early twenties, I would jump out of bed (no hangover!), squeeze into spandex (what love handles?), and speed over to a yoga class […]

It’s impossible to know what I want. Something like a paradox would occur if I ever found it. I catch glimpses of it in my dreams like you do with money on the sidewalk, or something with teeth in the woods. I’m always too slow to catch it though, or if I do I never […]

No natural force created this intense unfairness, the growing global inequality in wealth and incomes, the recent Oxfam report graphically highlights it.

Grabbed these 🍊 off the ground underneath a tree on the last mile of my run on Monday (gerbiling pays off sometimes, haters). They turned out to be really sour and inedible. . But one time, on my birthday a few years ago, Jake picked a perfect persimmon when we were out on a run. […]

Solids are always a solid bet for good reason. The LBD wouldn’t exist were it not for the fact that a fabulous black dress is perfect for any and every occasion. Beyond the world of black, anyone who has ever claimed to have a “signature color” is talking about a single hue that speaks to […]

Spent much time with graphic artists? Then you’re probably familiar with Pantone, the professional color standard for design in advertising, publications, fashion, cosmetics, and a whole range of products, including book cover design. It already popped up a few years ago. Remember Crazy Rich Asians? Every year,  Pantone’s color trend-watchers proclaim a “color of the […]

I remember being surprised when I realised that Bonnard had lived through World War Two. In my mind, he had existed in the Paris of an earlier era, when, along with Vuillard, he was one of the leading lights in the school of Post Impressionism known as Les Nabis. But he lived – and continued […]

Persimmons are not a common fruit around these parts. Many people think they look like tomatoes and have no idea how or when to eat them. Lucky for me, growing up in Brazil, persimmons (or caqui, as they are known there) are everywhere. I know how they taste, and I also know that you must […]

I’ve been enjoying the fruit here much more than I do at home. Pretty much everything I’ve had has been fresh, ripe, sweet and juicy…and expensive. It took me almost 2 months to give in and buy a $5 peach last summer! In most cases you won’t find a bin piled with loose fruit as […]
