You are so elegant...

La Tanguera March 28, 2008 at 6:44 AM  

I agree. Every time I see your photos, I am like "wow, she's got it". Your new profile photograph is awesome, BTW.

You are such a TEASE :-)

Aww, Red Shoes. You are a luv. Can't wait to see you today.

Hi La Tanguera,

Thank you for the compliment! I think I am more interesting in bits and pieces, though.


Hi Johanna,

I know. I am incorrigible. But it takes one to know one, doesn't it?

I have a distinct feeling that when I am finally in the company of you SFO ladies, that I will find myself in deep, deep, doo doo...in the absolute best sense of the phrase...

P.S. re: the flower duet...thanks for that...I found it on iTunes...Dame Joan Sutherland, Jane Berbié, Orchestre national de l'Opéra de Monte-Carlo & Richard Bonynge...and a new cortina...merci beaucoup...

Hi Alex,

Yes, the Sirens of SF are calling you. You might be a drowning man but you will happily drowning with us.

You know we are waiting for you...

I'm glad you like the Flower Duet. I can listen to that on continuous loop and it still gives me chills.

Beautiful photographs and quotes!

Tu a les yeux extraordinaires :-) When I saw your new profile picture, I had to think about Isabelle Adjani, whom I adore.
I love flower duet. Times ago (in my prior life) I happened to have sung it a lot and it always felt really amazing.

Hello La Tangeurita,

Thank you for the incredible compliment. Adjani has to be one of the most beautiful women in the world.

(If the internet makes me look even the tiniest bit like Isabelle Adjani, then god bless Al Gore for inventing it. ;-) )

So you are a songbird! How wonderfully talented you are. To be able to sing that piece, it must feel like you are an angel for a little while. I cannot even imagine how wonderful it must feel to be able to sing like that. I am happy for you!

I love your new avatar!

I just wandered by your blog and am so glad I ended up here. I feel like I met a new friend. I love your photgraphs. If I hadn't read on, I would never have believed that you just got your first camera. You have a gift. I'll be back for more.

Hi Miss Tango,

Thank you! I think every girl should have an ostrich feather fan. I think Miss Isabella Azul will need one in a few years...

Hi Relyn,

Thank you for visiting my blog, and I appreciate your sweet comment and praise.

I hope you will stop back anytime. I just visited your blog and it's lovely. I will be checking in with you as well!
