Still life

Tanga Moreau by Tom Munro and Emmanuelle Alt in Still life editorial, Allure US April 1998
It's raining. I am finally back at home after a very refreshing brisk walk, sitting in front of my computer, with my frequently mentioned cup of green tea and a lovely chunk of raw almond and raisin chocolate I made last night. Listening to the sound of rain falling on a roof, just like an orchestra of tiny drums. Waiting for an UPS man. He is bringing my new perfume, a magical potion that took me several months to find. I had a sample - it run out last Friday and I am already missing those precious drops that complete me.

And then there is an editorial I chose a night before... For the sunshine and the smile - it's not often you see Tanga Moreau smile like that. Most stories she was cast for happened to be the dark and moody ones, when the soul is on the surface of every image barely touched by light. 

Today I want something different, as light as the spring air I just filled my lungs with, something that makes me pause and be still for a little while. Because it feels so good.

  17. This editorial totally illustrates how simple is beautiful. It's currently raining in NYC but at least it's warm.
