#tbt: 1924 on the Mediterranean

As the summer weeks begin to dwindle (sigh), let’s throwback to Le Train Bleu. This adorable ballet was created for Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes by a superstar team: choreography by Bronislava Nijinska (Vaslav Nijinsky’s underrated sister), music by Darius Milhaud, libretto by Jean Cocteau, curtain by Pablo Picasso, set design by Henri Laurens, and costumes by Coco Chanel....

National Dance Day (which happened on July 27th)  is meant to be a day in which we celebrate the art of movement, and each year, it seems to me that the celebration gets bigger and better.

F#$% you heat wave! I’m in the Northwest!

While the rest of the country lies in the grip of a tremendous heat wave, I’m in the great Northwest this weekend, Seattle, where the temperature has only risen above 80 degrees for a whopping seventy-eight minutes so far in 2011.   This time of year there is even sunshine, and plenty of it.  When...

I’m Gonna Say It…

I love Facebook! There I said it. But this post isn’t about FB, it’s about my garden. I do not live on FB,  and I’ve even  flirted deactivation a couple  of times. But, reconnecting with  an old friend is a magical moment indeed and there is no better tool for this than Facebook.  Maybe it’s...
