Bessie And The Lamb: A Parable In 5 Gears

My personal parable has nothing to do with wild horses and dodging the draft. My story is of the simple misfortune of my car engine locking on me in the middle of the road, and that misfortune giving me the good fortune of knowing the kindness of a friend.

The Fire And The Rose (or Let Nothing You Dismay)

The only savior from the burn of a half-baked existence is the sort of fire that shifts our shape and molds our mettle. Whenever the year comes to its Gregorian end, we exchange grand overtures, symphonically declaring what a good year the one ahead will be for us all. What we rarely mention is that shit is bound cloud the rivers of joy despite our most valiant efforts. What we hardly discuss is the notion that triumph and defeat are one and the same.

Tea With A Twist

For our Christmas tea with a twist, I served a spearmint incarnation of a delicate green tea burst with notes of passion fruit that I discovered in an unassuming little tea shop in Le Marais. Thrilled to finally put my Moroccan tea set to use, I imagined the choice was apropos because Jesus was middle eastern wasn’t he?

Marrakech is Magic

“As you set out for Ithaka, ask that the voyage is a long one…”
The journey to Marrakech by way of the desert took us 3 days. By the time we made it to Marrakech, the final leg of my “30 Becomes Her Tour” as I dubbed this year’s round of intercontinental gallivanting, we were undoubtedly rich in our knowledge of Morocco. The magic was all in the getting there…

Frye Day

As today is Friday, corny though it may sound, I have decided to share some photos from The Frye Company’s flagship store opening in Atlanta from a few weeks back. The leather apparel company, established in 1886, has opened up shop in Atlanta’s new play ground, Ponce City Market. Vogue magazine co-sponsored the well-attended evening of cocktails, canapés and bootstraps.
