A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Smith ’69, Purdue ’75. Anarchist; agnostic. Writer. Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

Semper Ubi Sub Ubi

Mary Green is a self-made woman, eponymous head of a company that makes and sells lingerie, virtually all of it silk. She's been in business twenty-some years, and has done enough savvy marketing to get herself in Cosmo, Elle, Glamour, Vogue, Seventeen, Redbook, People, WWD, O, Maxim, Lucky, Allure, Variety, and so on and on. And to get herself worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Kate Hudson, featured on Sex in the City, talked about on The Today Show....

One of her most popular items is the "Days of the Week" panties in a silk pouch. UK sexpert Emily Dubberly, in a review on knickersblog.com, gives these panties 5/5 in every category, from practicality and value to sexiness and style.

At upwards of $100 a set, they're out of reach for me. But not for a friend, on whose coffee table we photographed these. I'll have to go unembroidered for the nonce. As Mary says, semper ubi sub ubi.

So dumb puns are amusing if and only if Latin is involved?
