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

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.

Diary February 13, 1960: I Go to the Rialto Roller Rink

[click to enlarge]
"Dear Diary
Today I went to the RIALTO, roller skating. You should have seen me pout when Mom told me I couldn't borrow Gil's skirt. But what a thrill! It's wonderful! I've decided to go next week, too. By then I'll have a skating skirt of my own.
Another exam in catechism. I didn't finish the last question.
Gilda is now minus one glove--thanks to the red fox + his mate at the park, who snitched it.
And I didn't do any homework yet."
