darlings

we went for tea with mr. eric shaw quinn (yes, the new york times best-seller list author and celebrated radio host) and had to *gasp* as we entered into a veritable winter wonderland (especially glorious on the Coast-that-winter-does-not-visit).

oh!

we said.

yes……

said eric —-

now this is not the Exterior of mr. eric shaw quinn’s abode – but it was Rather near by and felt gloriously fitting as the Final Shot.

let’s take a moment to watch a snippet of eric’s favo(u)rite film, darlings – just to get everyone in a really splendid mood.

yes, Virginia – there is a santa claus – right here, in Los Angeles.

isn’t that delicious?

About teamgloria

I used to make my living from writing. And then it all stopped and so I went and did something else, part of which entailed a whole new look from Brooks Brothers (it wasn’t really me, but it was necessary). But a decade later I started to write again (during nights and weekends and frustrated lunch-times and long haul business travel) and one of the things I wrote (or came to me – as I do believe in the whole Muse concept) was a character called Gloria. Gloria was a trainee angel and sat “up there” waiting for her first assignment. To occupy the hours she should have been studying humans and their foibles, she spent her time enjoying the new celestial movies-on-demand channel and became obsessed by Doris Day. So you can imagine the drama that unfolded when she came to Earth. Quite a shock to the system. But Gloria was determined to see Manhattan through the eyes of a vintage Doris Day movie and something magical started to happen – to me too. Because I started to do the same thing and life became easier (and then I got Tobias the tumor which changed the trajectory, for now). There are a lot of glorious people, places & things that help me get through my day – they make my life great – and so I call them “team gloria” (although they don’t usually know that). So I thought I’d start documenting them, and looking out for new people, places & things on a daily basis, and sharing them with you (whomever you are – do say hello. Oh, and tell me who your team gloria is :-)

  1. I love that movie; Bedford Falls will always remind of going to college in upstate NY.

    That is just adorable!
    Dear lovely Team Gloria, I seem inexplicably to have lost my goodreads account. At least, I can’t seem to get into it. In all honesty, I was a shabby goodreader and never remembered to put my books on there. So the best idea may be to start over if I can. Anyway, this is just to let you know that I will look for you when I’m back in the groove.

    Love the festive magic, darling! *wavesfromCambridge*
