IN HONOR OF MEMORIAL DAY--PHOTOS FROM MEMORIAL WEEKEND 2010

Sunrise at CieloAzul..............................

But this is not just any ordinary late spring day--this is the start of the Memorial Day weekend...........

A time to usher in the summer season by remembering all the brave soldiers and beloved relatives who have gone before us.........................

And so we are ready with prepared remembrances to decorate the graves of those we love.................

I haven taken inspiration from the Jewish tradition--as shown in SCHINDLER'S LIST--of placing stones for remembrance on graves. The stones carry some of the energy of the presenter, and I embellish them with flowers and personal messages........................

And so as the early morning light illuminates Santa Fe, we are prepared to honor our loved ones in eternal repose...................

I have collected stones and silk flowers and Dwight has loaded the P.T. Cruiser for me..............

So it's farewell to the babbling fountains of home........................

And off to…
VIVA ITALIA!--MAY 2011

What could be more enjoyable than a luscious Italian dinner by candlelight..............

And this evening, we got just such an invitation.................

Because I was so busy preparing for the Iris Show the next morning, Giancarlo stepped in to prepare the antipasto platters that were my contribution to the dinner.....................


The platters were just the teasers for a scrumptious dinner of cheese stuffed chicken and spaghetti Alfredo...................

But, they were a hit!.........................

Our outfits for the dinner reflect two different aspects of Italian culture. I am channellingEtruscan and Dwight is going Sopranos................................

The dinner was held at the lovely home of Miss Anabelle and Adolfo--entertainers extraordinaire...........................

Louise chose a table with a view of the fountain..................

A lovely couple, the Martinezes, chose the Tuscany table..................

And we joined the Gonzaleses at the Sicilian table........…
