"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

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.

(click to enlarge)

"Dear Diary

No homework! Only math, and I did that third period.

Blouse finished 5th period. I'm glad. I'll get a C, but Mom says she won't sign my card until she sees it on paper.

Gilda may not be able to go downtown Sat. But we shall see.

Mrs. Weissman, math sub. Mrs. Peterson, science sub. Science test 50 ques. tough

Gilda came, we had fun, sort of."
