Today is the ninth anniversary of our first date. I will never regret letting you eat from my plate. Joyeux anniversaire de premier rendez-vous, mon amour! Above: 7am trek through West Village to clean the reception loft before flying back to Switzerland, 2008. Exhausted after nine days of wedding, but happy. Below: our first picture, […]

~one year anniversary in eu~

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

A year ago today we stepped on to European soil with the intention of hanging around awhile.

Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go. ~Truman Capote Tonight, after another day of resting on my back and dreaming of the city beyond my windows–the world of birds and bells—the menfolk return to roast a chicken and potatoes and flourishing salad and a lily for me, now displayed […]

McSweeney’s hosted a contest to celebrate the release of Lawrence Weschler’s Everything That Rises: A Book of Convergences. The contest: “Submit your own convergence—an unlikely, striking pair of images, along with a paragraph or three exploring the deeper resonances.” *** This pairing of flea-market photographs has hung above my desk for as long as I […]
