The obligatory apology post

Forgive me, dear friends, for my absence. I have been remiss in posting, it is true, but I have a good excuse. Much as Olympe searched for a home in Paris while preparing her reacquisition case, I have been trying to find an apartment in the DC area while working on my Masters thesis in southwest Virginia. The past week has been a whirlwind of visits to various properties, with and without my sweetie. Now I am back and focusing solely on the thesis. And my classes. And my mainstage show that opens in April. And packing.

Actually, I love packing; it's a chance to declutter while looking forward to positive change.

To make it up to all of you I have posted one of my favorite paintings; Elegante a sa Toilette by Michel-Garnier. He was a french painter (as you might have guessed) who lived from 1753-1819. Unfortunately there is very little information available on this artist, though all of his works are lovely.

  1. My Southern grandmother (as opposed to my English grandmother) was from southwest Virginia. I think her departure from there with her parents and siblings was an entirely different sort of journey than yours. A bit of that story is in my Cream Gravy post, I believe.
