Introduction My camera has become the thing I can't leave home without. The computer is my new darkroom and this is a little gallery for sharing with all the wonderful friends I've made through blogging.
Interests travel (to France, Italy, India, Spain, Britain, Morocco -- and anywhere and everywhere I haven't been yet), photography, yoga, life and living it well.
Favorite Movies Tom Jones, Funny Face, An American in Paris, Un Homme et Une Femme, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Chloe in the Afternoon, Farenheit 451, Cinema Paradiso, Adventures in Babysitting, My Cousin Vinnie, Working Girl, Wild Strawberries, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Godfather (I and II), Don't Look Now, The American President, Pride and Prejudice, all the Indiana Jones films.
Favorite Music This is a hard one: Miles Davis (especially Kind of Blue), Handel's Messiah, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, almost anything by Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones (and thanks for the good times, M & K), Eric Clapton, Donovan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Chad Mitchell and all the other folkies, Manu Chao, Stevie Wonder, Piaf/Aznavour/Trenet/ Barbara, the MJQ, Coltrane (most especially 'My Favorite Things').
Favorite Books The Alexandria Quartet (I gave my second daughter the middle name Justine after the first book in this series) and anything else by Laurence Durrell or his brother Gerald, the poetry of Baudelaire and Francois Villon, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, the entire Lord Peter Wimsey series by Dorothy Sayers, all P.D. James' books and British mysteries in general, and travel books -- mostly about Paris, Venice, Florence, and Rome.

Whoops! Your tongue is now a magnet. Whatever will you use for silverware?

Why, chopsticks of course!
