En la memoria de la piel
Te extraño
Donde no te pueda ver
Te extraño
Con el sol en la mirada
Con las luces apagadas
Cuando no te puedo ver amor

-En la memoria de la piel, Rosana

Lake Trout

Gilbert Blythe: “Anne Shirley…..what in the heck are you doing here?”

Anne Shirley: “Fishing for lake trout.”

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables (1985)

There is a magical place in the highest Rocky Mountains where my family spends a week every year. It’s a time where we disconnect completely from technology and work and we spend time together. This year one of my nieces caught her first fish. Mostly we get rainbows, but sometimes we catch Kokanee salmon or Arctic Greyling. Rainbows are our favorite for dinner on the fire, and I was glad to capture my niece’s look of surprise and pride in her first catch and her careful excitement as she ran from the boat to show her dad.

This landscape is a little less wild than the high Uintahs, but trout are found in rivers as well as mountain lakes. I chose a recent style from Damselfly for it’s messy waves—after a week of camping my hair does kind of look like this, but on Eliza it looks chic and intentional!

I took piano lessons for almost fifteen years when I was growing up.  One would think that this would make me a virtuoso of sorts, but the truth is that I am quite average, mostly playing for church meetings or accompanying singers or as a backup pianist for my ukulele-obsessed husband, who likes to have ukulele/piano jam sessions. Yeah. Nerds. So anyway, if there is something I really want to play, I can usually find a way to play it given enough time. Obviously not Rachmaninoff, but you know. Regular things. The mathematical and physical perfection of music performed well is to me one of the most magical things in life.

The piano is a wonderful instrument, but one thing a piano definitely isn’t is portable. And keyboards are just not musically acceptable. Note: piano snob. So last year I started taking guitar lessons, and made my teacher start pulling his hair out when he asked me what kind of music I wanted to play on the guitar. “Whatever I feel like playing”, I told him. So he makes me play scales all the day long. It’s not elegant or attractive, and my husband’s noise-cancelling earphones have saved our marriage when he just can’t listen to the scales any longer, but this is something that takes time. Maybe fifteen years’ time. One day, though, I will be able to walk down a street like Eliza with her instrument in its cool case from the Body Factory, knowing that wherever it is I am headed, I carry the magic with me.

Anchors Aweigh

This adorable mesh dress from Vero Modero had me running around trying to find a Navy shipyard so I could wave to a bunch of sailors. The best I could find though was a really big cruise ship. still, adorable, right?


Just as adorable is my nautical themed jewelry from Ripe:

Pose Fair 2012: Marukin

Some of my favorite new poses from the Pose Fair have been those from Valencia Southard at Marukin. I am always intrigued by the names Valencia gives her poses, and they never fail to resonate realistically with me. Much as I would like to say that I leap around editorially all the time, the truth is that I just want to show what real clothes would look like in a position that a real body would normally assume. Marukin provides a lot of options for that. In fact, in the second photo is a pose I used this very day when a student asked if she could come make up her test at a certain time. (My face was not as serene, though, since I was mentally going through what other appointments or meetings I might have scheduled!)


My shirt is from a new-to-me store, Oh! It’s only on the Marketplace right now, but hopefully it will soon make it in world! I love the flow and semi-transparence of this mesh top! It comes in about a jazillion (totally made-up word) colors and patterns so check it out.
