this is just to say

This is one of my all-time favorite poems. It comes into my mind often on very hot
days, like the one we had last week in NYC, when I returned home from a day out
in the city's sticky humid heat and savored a refrigerator-cold cherry (and then
several more...). One of summer's blissful pleasures.

For the grooviest of patios...

How amazing are these chairs? Designed by Italian fashion house Marni for the Milan Furniture Fair, the pieces are handmade by Colombian craftsmen using salvaged materials.

Back from the road!

Wow, it's been quite a whirlwind - there was just enough time to recover from the Stationery Show and then we hit the road - Grand Canyon, Glen Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Moab, Arches, Telluride (our favorite spot - a cool town in a stunning setting!), Aspen, winding up the trip with a weekend visiting our good friends in Denver. It was a welcome change from our city grind to be in such raw, beautiful environments and just be outside all day - picnic lunches, hiking, rafting, biking, and more hiking!

Here's a few pics from our trip...
