My Odette-Odile Complex

I meant to go to ballet class this morning, and overslept once again! It's terrible because taking ballet makes me genuinely happy, and I inevitably wake up anyway right when the class is starting...I just need to get up a little bit earlier. I guess today I have to settle for listening to my Swan Lake record, and a dream that next week I'll wake up on time.

Coney Island

I love these photos my sister took while we were on a trip to Coney Island together several years ago. Her camera had a light leak, but I like it...

Lately, I've been rather enamored of family portraits like this, taken when my son was so small...I think it's a knee-jerk reaction to having to look upwards to see his face these days.

flowering tea

My in-laws are globetrotters in the truest sense of the word. Here is one of the perks from their latest trips: flowering tea, likely grown in the Yunnan province of China, though purchased in Dubai.

I felt a bit like Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette..."it's jasmine."

Pablo the Sailor Man, toot toot

Andre Villers photo of Pablo Picasso, as Popeye. I took this photo from tout ceci est magnifique's blog, but I think I may have actually seen it first elsewhere, maybe on either Sho & Tell, or evencleveland.
