Your great taste exhibits itself once again - aside from the great portraiture, I love your choice of glasses. It's great to see frames that venture far left of main stream and they complement your face oh so well.

random: william butler yeats started learning to fence at age forty-eight. eleven years after learning to fence, yeats won the nobel prize for literature in 1923.

Lovely-when you have the impeccable taste that you do, don't ever apologize for the glamor shots. Killer specs and fabulous tweed! I live in Austin and we're constantly teased with one day of 40-degree weather (so I can sport my winter classics) to be followed by a week of 75-degree days :(.
