The Photographer and I returned to Washington, D.C. on April 15th — somehow both invigorated and exhausted by our travel. But everyone is right as rain now. You may be asking, What is “tHiS”? ThIS is a silk striped tank featuring every color of the rainbow with a fortuny-pleated panel that needs no adornment yet … Read moreBack In Living Color
It seems like we just got here, but non. It’s been two weeks and it’s time to go home. As you read this, I am probably engaged in an in-flight marathon of Marvel Comics movies: Captain America: The Winter Soldier; Captain America: Civil War; Captain America: It’s Mueller Time! After leaving the desert, we flew … Read moreAdiós, Chile!
We like the Alto Atacama so much that we have spent more than half of our time lounging around the resort rather than taking advantage of the excursions available to us daily.* In case you are wondering how big this landscape is, there are people in the photograph directly above. I don’t mean the shadows. … Read moreWe Are High and Dry
In Santiago, we spent a half-day with a guide — seeing some of the more famous sights and getting taste of this complex, vibrant city. We saw the changing of guard at La Moneda (actually, we saw the horses’ hind ends as they walked away) and other significant government buildings, as well as a number … Read morePictures of People, Places, and Things
First things first: We are in Chile and these early photos were taken in Santiago. Come closer and take a gander at the sleeves. And now, enough of my yammering about clothes.

Perhaps a photo without me in the way would … Read moreWhere In The World Are The Directrice and The Photographer?
I like wearing a fancy top with khakis. Drumroll! We have three winners from the most recent Directrice contest. I loved all of your comments — I always do. In the category of Original Material: SM and Kim. I could not choose. In the Category of Adapted Material: SS, who offered a timely Wordsworth. Prizes … Read moreReturn of the Party Dress as Top
It may seem like I have a lot of clothes and that I buy a lot of clothes. Those perceptions (surely they aren’t criticisms?) are rooted in reality. But I also wear my clothes forever and often try to wear them in new combinations. Thank you so much for your excellent responses to the challenge … Read moreMaximal Use
One of the challenges I have found in writing this blog: Creativity is not a steady-state. Or, it’s not a steady-state for me. I have bursts of creativity, in which I scribble down a whole bunch of ideas for 5 or 10 posts, and then days or weeks without inspiration may pass. Jacket: Marc … Read moreThe Search for Meaning
