Santa Maria della Salute


This 17th-century Venice basilica, which
was built in thanks for deliverance
from an outbreak of plague, is not big on
bling but filled with lovely
shapes and shadows.

It's how old?!


Lots of people walk past 
this tree in the
Square Viviani in Paris and
don't even realize it's the oldest tree
in the city.  It's a locust, planted in 1601 by 
Jean Robin, the gardener of Henri IV.
{I'm headed to Paris tonight—maybe I'll
stop by and see how it's doing.}

ABC Wednesday—K is for "kissing 9-to-5 goodbye"


                                 I'm packing up my blue pencils and retiring today!
                             Am grateful for the past 10 years
                                 at this job at Parents magazine, working with
                              some wonderful people—and I hereby
                               bequeath my greenery to the next person to
                          occupy this cozy cubicle.

Saratoga En Pointe


Saratoga, N.Y., is the summer home of the
New York City Ballet.  Toe shoes like
this one (though most are more colorful)
were originally part of an exhibit
of the Museum of Dance and can be 

found all over town.  See a few more here.

Somewhere in Florence . . .
Check out the detail on this thing—
it even has creepy little teeth!

Shadow Shot Sunday


Deciding what to have for dinner al fresco
in Rome—it was a great meal
at Da Sabatino, in Piazza Sant'Ignazio.
