    Absolutely love this. It also makes me think of our friend at team gloria in some completely tangential way.

    Although they normally look nothing alike, in this photo Claudette bears a striking resemblance to my mom. I like it!

        It makes perfect sense!

        Thanks, but it is not my book. I am just the editor/consultant. My occasional contributor Kevin wrote it, and it is amazing.

        You would look divine!
        I notice you call her a “sophisticated pixie”… So true! No wonder I like her!

        I would have to keep them in a special case as the last pair of sunglasses I had I set on the cushion of the couch beside me, got distracted by whatever I was doing, forgot they were there and when I sat up squarely placed my knee in the treasured spectacles and snapped them in half.

    Dearest V
    Those certainly are a reader’s specs.
    But what must have been on those pages to draw forth such a concentrated look?

      The best selling novels at the time were:
      All Quiet on the Western Front
      The Good Earth
      Anthony Adverse

    I love everything about this photo – her glasses, her hair, her outfit. Plus, she looks sincerely interested in her book.
