I'm looking for my manual for graceful living. I think I set it down somewhere over here...
I have been reading books about Georgia O'Keeffe lately. I had a fascination with her work and life way back when I was getting my undergraduate degree in fine arts, and lately, for some reason, I have returned to her story. Nearly forty years have passed since I last thought seriously about her work, and I find that there is a richness there that--though I loved her work even then--I didn't see before. The books I've been reading--a wonderful, comprehensive, and scholarly biography by Roxana Robinson, and books on O'Keeffe's houses and clothing--have given me much to think about.
