you Republicans straining in angst at President Obama’s immigration fix.
Go to yoga.
Activate your Golgis, muscle-tendon juncture nerve receptors that,
when they sense tension, send a signal to the spinal cord
which then signals the stretching muscle to relax,
thus preventing the tendon from tearing at its attachment to the bone,
a protective circuit breaker.
It’s a metaphor for what the US needs. Relax.
Thanks again to Mike Stafford for finding and sending me photos of the writings of 17-year old Patty. I love sifting through the litter of my past selves.
Barbara Leaming has a 10/14 Vanity Fair piece on Jackie that bears reading. As a teenager I know I wondered how she did it–be the balm for troubled waters. As a grown-up I realized that of course she was falling apart.
Below is a link to a picture that I studied and studied while I was writing the magazine piece. I can’t seem to figure out how to get it on this blog entry. But it’s the one with Jackie and the brothers.

I flew, drove, and hiked
for hours, days, and weeks
to indulge in caldo freddo.
Yes, I’m hopelessly obsessed. Truth be told, I dream about caldo freddo.
Elevated to an art form, a triumph that seduces every palate, it’s the local specialty in Trapani.
The velvety dark-chocolate topping slowly melts through layers of sweet cream to the coffee and hazelnut gelato underneath. At the bottom of all this, in the underbelly of the bowl, is rum-soaked cake. The generous-sized dish is topped with chopped hazelnuts. And it gets better ~ it’s available day and night.
A note: There is a smaller size, the caldo freddo da passeggio.
It’s the takeaway version. My personal experience says, forget that ‘less is more’ gibberish. This isn’t about makeup.
I got some advice from a professional food photographer ~ take a bite, then take a picture. Messy is beautiful.
Oh, if you’re wondering why Trapani is completely out of caldo freddo…that was me.
