today (so far) has been delicious.
If we were to illustrate it (and could draw, which is Not one of our Talents), we say today’s feeling is fierce and glorious, like this picture.

It started with a breakfast to Discuss International Matters (for the Day Job, naturally) on the upper east side – the Regency, no less, love.

And if you’ve been here before you know that we Adore goddesses, chandeliers, writers-and-editors who love words and most especially Tea.
Today had All of these.
Isn’t life exquisite?
