How to Eat Sushi

September 28, 2014

Fall is slowly approaching (today was quite warm unfortunately) and  for some reason I don’t crave heavy food. I had dinner with a  friend a couple of nights ago and we ate simple, flavorful sandwiches accompanied with a lovely bottle of pinot noir. Suddenly I crave sushi. I keep thinking of my time in South Korea, how food is presented, eaten and shared. I want to know more about sushi and until I can actually eat in Mr. Yasuda’s restaurant in NYC  or in Japan,  I will learn how to properly eat sushi via youtube, from the master himself. Just want to eat more healthily as I contemplate my next adventure…

P.S. Feeling much better! I drank citron chaud with lemon the whole weekend and got plenty of rest.

A bit under the weather today. I was hit hard yesterday with whatever bug/virus is going around, so suffice it to say, I’m home, drinking lots of fluids.  Have a great and restful weekend.

La Cité Africaine

September 21, 2014


Gathering more concrete ideas for decorating my second bedroom which is going to be my office. This particular image makes me feel at once nostalgic and wildly excited. I appreciate the art displayed as it mirrors what still remains THE main source of inspiration in my life: Art, Travel and Commerce.

I look forward to setting my own schedule and determine my own priorities.

Words of Encouragement

My questions this day

1.I wonder if it’s really true that certain scents on black skin smell intoxicatingly different than on other colors of skin?

2. I wonder why there are no chic, tiny, exclusive shops in Richmond, VA.?

3. Why isn’t there a real stand-alone bakery in my city?

4. How do I find the best videographer for my upcoming coming trip to Sweden?

5. I wonder if I can hire K’s accountant?


All these questions before I begin work and more flood in on the walk home after all is said and one…at work.

My Fall!

Hello All!

I received a vital message from my dear, sweet brother today: “It’s perfection outside”. Well my brother knows my tastes in seasons and while I had not planned to go out so early this morning, I couldn’t resist finding out what exactly “perfection” was. I’m glad to know that my brother loves me enough to give me perfection. It was GLORIOUS day today. Sunny and chilly, so chilly that I ran back in my house and grabbed a jacket and hit the road.

I love the Fall before I fall hopelessly fall for the Spring. My mother is the same way. I love wearing scarves, layering beautiful fabrics, walking with my jacket or trench wide open, feeling that hint of cold. I just adore it! All is as it is, not as it should be. You know what I mean? Everything changes, even the food we eat changes. It’s a time to gather together thoughts, friends, plans, but most of all, be and enjoy.
