Sofia

Generally I prefer to rent a place when I travel rather than stay at a hotel. I need a kitchen. However I do love staying at the Chateau. Come to think of it, the Chateau's rooms and bungalows have kitchens too.
Sofia Coppola's latest movie takes place at the Chateau.
I am excited to see it - Sofia and the Chateau. What's not to love?
You can listen to Sofia Coppola and Stephen Dorff speak about their new movie Somewhere on NPR's Fresh Air: www.npr.org.

Lunar


Happy Winter Solstice! Crisp skies during the lunar eclipse in New York tonight. Moon looking like an eye. I wonder if Pete is marveling at this.

Saturday This & That


Bovine Beauty © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Last night we watched Claire Danes in the HBO Temple Grandin movie. We really liked it, if you haven't seen it, go get it via Netflix.
"Nature is cruel, we do not have to be". Well said, Ms. Grandin. That is how I feel about being a vegetarian. I am not beyond reproach. But I try to be kind.

If you are interested in reading Temple Grandin's essay you can find them on her website: www.grandin.com.

If you missed the Tina Barney exhibit at Janet Borden, you can still glimpse at the work online at: www.janetbordeninc.com.
