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.

What I Had for Lunch Today: Chef's Salad

Today I made a salad of romaine lettuce tossed with a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I topped it with sautéed strips of "chicken," toasted walnuts, fake bacon bits, crushed red pepper, and grape tomatoes. For a beverage, I made an Italian soda of sparkling water, grenadine, and cream. For dessert, sliced strawberries with sugar and a splash of Triple Sec. After I took the picture, I decided to gild the lily and add some cream to the strawberries, too.
