Literal Street Art – Musée D’Art Moderne de Paris

Last October, when there was a short break in between lockdowns, almost all the museums in Paris had reopened.   I rushed to Chanel exhibit at the Palais Galliera, and after, I crossed the street to see the Sarah Moon photo exhibit at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris.   It was a rainy day and as I exited the museum, the large plaza of marble stones in various colors and shapes were shiny from the rain. Something about them caught my eye, perhaps the glistening surfaces and textures of...

Stella Tennant obituary

Model who rose to fame in the 1990s, capturing the attention of Karl Lagerfeld and gracing the pages of VogueNo one in fashion could guess what would succeed the smiling, buoyant healthfulness of the international supermodels who commanded catwalks and covers in the late 1980s and early 90s.

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Spending turkey day without turkey

I have always loved this holiday, because it’s an excuse to eat a lot of stuffing, but it’s had a special meaning since I adopted my kids 18 years ago. That meaning is: Get out of town. I blessed our s...
