Hello everyone. I’m running like crazy today! (Sort of like the girl above, but probably not as graceful). There’s so much going on: Bono is in trouble for saying the F-word, Bill Clinton is coming to town, there’s a Congo event tonight, followed by a gala to raise money for women in Afghanistan. And I’m so behind.

I did manage to put up a post on Ms. Muse about Brad Pitt. Check it out if you have a moment. Meanwhile, I’ll meet you back here, late late tonight…

PS: Please visit the sites of my lovely new sponsors (to the left)! I love them!

On the days when I’m at a loss for inspiration, I find it in the photographs of Jeanloup Sieff…

Hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday. I’m busy working on my column today. I’ve been closed up in my little office…

My friend Tina Tarnoff, a fantastic artist and blogger in San Francisco, has recently been commissioned to do a mural in New Orleans’ gorgeous Garden District! I’m so proud she is going to be a part of the ongoing restoration of an amazing city. I spent a little time this weekend browsing through her paintings, above, My previous post on those!) And here’s the link to her blog, Thought Patterns.

I hope everyone has a lovely Monday! Such a busy week ahead. I’m heading out to, where else?, Beverly Hills.
