from Virginia Woolf to #JackieCollins via the mid-century works of Mr. Steve Martin

hello darlings

so we woke up Very Early (it was 5 something AM) and went for a Walk to greet the day (and be energetic enough for a Work Call with Europe – can’t be sleepy and pre-caffeinated just because it’s a Different Time Zone, darlings ;-)


and the world looked beautiful at Dawn. 


yesterday we found ourselves on a Hollywood Studio Lot (which we ADORE doing). OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand then watching the oeuvre of Mr. Steve(n) Martin — because, you see, we have an Idea for a piece about L.A and so we’re catching up with his Other homage* to this fine city (as opposed to the-tale-of-here).

[*which was very affecting and vulnerable and beautiful actually – we had no idea.]

If you don’t have a room of your own on the Internet, you don’t have a voice in the modern world.

so those trips to Malibu are now making sense.



we *did* help with This one – she couldn’t possibly get from Edward Hopper to Ms. Jackie Collins without our influence, love.

but you knew that didn’t you?

and now she’s next door (drinking more coffee – there’ll be Tears Later) because she’s on a Deadline apparently (for something we can’t talk about) and so we’ve been told to be Quiet.



we’ll see about that.

    1. (it’s all SO ephemeral but cloaked in Mysterious MBA nonsense) – here it is for you –

      a. tumblr “this is what i’ve seen and want to share on “Show and Tell” at interweb school day:

      b. twitter: “this is what i heard in the lockers when that really cool girl was talking to her friends and the football team walked by”


      school analogies kinda work.

      The Requesting Materials service of the Los Angeles County Library has reserved us a copy of the silas marner mr. s. martin movie – thank you!

      1. Oh my goodness – I get that! Was coaxed over to tumblr the other day by a fab individual at Atavist, but can’t find enough hours in the day to take on more school – argh!

        Got my ISBN yesterday. And, am not quite sure what that means either ;-)

  1. You are a glorious wonder (but a hard working, very organised one). Both articles are as inspirational and refreshing as those sunrises you enjoy. But A Room of Your Own is my favourite and makes me feel a little bit proud that I am ‘out there’ (but I haven’t finished Part 2 of that post yet). Sigh! I am not as organised as you, plus I always miss sunrise. Midnight I know very well :)

    1. we attempt to avoid Midnight.

      it makes us so Very Tired for sunrises.

      but, yes, sometimes it happens.


      isn’t Virginia Woolf marvel(l)ous?!

  2. There was nothing to be afraid of after all! That was in fact wonderful. I loved the “Room of Your Own” article! Still as every fabuglorious Team Gloria.

do say something - do :-)
