comic books and cashmere sweaters


lots going on.

who-we-are-in-RL is Very Busy.

but we managed to sneak a few moments here just to say hello to you.


a full month as you can see – and a new moleskine (#155 if you’re curious) begins…..what will sept Bring? *shivers*

much driving and Meeting people and wearing the sunglasses and shiny shoes. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and drinking tea (naturally)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and starting Very Early in the morning (who-we-are-in-RL is juggling several projects but everything is nicely paced and there’s Absolutely No Drama which is delicious). OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

our Publisher in New York (such a lovely sentence) called us to talk through some of the pictures in the Book (we’re almost at Final Designed Layout stage – so e x c i t i n g) and Terribly Gently and Kindly suggested we might want to swap out a couple and pop some new ones in.

we absolutely agreed and even did a quick “re-shoot” of two – the pile of t-shirts and cashmere will make sense when you see the finished product.

and this one was to illustrate the sentence “Thank goodness for the health insurance”.*

*yes, we thought the juxtaposition of Buddha and Meds summed that sentence up rather well too.

and we made time to visit the Comic Book and Graphic Novels store and meet Mr. Dan Kusunoki – such fun! 6fba39fe15a311e3a19522000a9f126b_7


you guessed it.

we DID write an article about our Visit. Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 8.54.15 PM

we’ve been thinking (not always a suggested activity) about William James (yes, the philosopher and brother of Mr. Henry James) and how he said:

To change one’s life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly.

now we’re not Entirely sure that William would have got on with Cecil (Beaton) but they had Rather similar life philosophies:

exhibit A, milord:

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

it’s all about the Action, you see.

as long as one takes time to take naps in between, otherwise it would be Exhausting.

that’s what cashmere wraps are for – naps.

and large brimmed hats are for getting out there and being all Action-Orientated.

a combination of cashmere wrap and large brimmed hat and you’re unstoppable, darling.

  1. Did Cashmere Wrap and Large brimmed Hat go to Skylight Books? We are very fond of Merino down here. Super fine merino, that is. Sadly the word Merino has rather smelly- sheep overtones to it; lacks the elegance of the word ‘cashmere’.

do say something - do :-)
