Have you seen the “docu” style Amex commercial starring designer Diane von Furstenberg? If not, peek below. In the spot, Diane says, “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do but I knew the woman I wanted to become. Fashion was absolutely an accident in my life. As a result of that I was becoming independent and becoming more and more of the woman I wanted to be.” Picture yourself as a kid. Place yourself in your child’s mind’s eye.

“I pray that one day the magic of an African evening, the glory of a reflection in some small stream will be yours . . . “ Is there anything more divine than a delicious love letter?

Summer, among the sunblock, beach towels, grilled corn on the cob and frozen drinks also means summer blockbusters. Grabbing my hubby, we headed to the vintage, post art deco movie theater in the town where we take our summer residence. A ticket is just $8 and the charge for real butter on the popcorn? 25 cents! Inception is awesome and not only because it is delicious to see Leonardo DiCaprio in his now “man sized” body or drool over Joseph Gordon-Levitt who now looks surpri
The World tarot card heralds success, euphoria, movement, travel, bliss and completion. This morning, the World card appeared for my card a day.

You’ve dealt me a couple cards, I’ll consider the Three of Swords, and shuffle you back. You poked and bled dry, nothing was left to seep the tissue papered membrane. Pierce today, discover words, not blood. Metaphors gather clotting wounds. My heart is vast, excessive in love, keeps circulation quick and fast. The doctor, handsome with his white coat warned me, you need to calm down. But Wands hold firm in their grip, my heart full, fluid, racing. Is that a crow’s foot you’v

Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s Telephone video has turned more than a few heads, what with its blatent prison lesbianism and mass murder scenes.
