I’d give an Ocean of Diamonds, a world filled with flowers
To hold you closely for just a few hours
Hear you whisper softly that you love me true
Would change all the dark clouds to the bluest of blue

windcliff ranch 0

One particularly glorious day, before the official start of spring, a group of us, old friends and new, gathered at one of the most spectacular locations, to shoot some photos for my lookbook (more on that, later).  Located way high in a Malibu Canyon, Windcliff Ranch boasts varied terrain, with sweeping canyon, valley, mountain and ocean views. Awesome, is an understatement. Breathtaking comes close. See for yourself.

IMG_5077IMG_5082  IMG_5157IMG_5116IMG_5100IMG_5098IMG_5133IMG_5122IMG_5137IMG_5156

Spectacular, no?


Our hostess was my dear friend Valerie Lefranc and was luck would have it, her daughter Adele, was back home for a spell, so that was an extra added treat! Born in the south of France, Valerie lived in  few other right places at the right time -we met in NYC in the late 1900’s! This canyon has been home for the better part of 20+ years. She is a great steward of this vast landscape, nurturing every square inch, every blade of grass, every rock and rubble, highlighting views and secret nooks, sharing all it’s beauty with all who have the honor of visiting.

IMG_5216IMG_5214 IMG_5196IMG_5220

A model, then stylist, Valerie has turned her creative hands to jewelry-making. While supplies last, look for her choice coveted pieces at In The Field, in Ojai.


To be continued…oh, and did I mention, you too can have your own Windcliff Ranch get away experience?

vanishing west: chris darrow 0

chris darrow is (in my circles) the emperor of the inland empire; an axis of the claremont folk music community and prolific member of one of it’s most renowned artistic families. no documentary about the late 60’s -70’s so-cal music scene (20 feet from stardom, pbs’ troubadour, bbc’s laurel canyon, and more) is complete with out some choice chris commentary. generous and inspiring, chris is a multi-hyphenate: multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, session musician, member of several seminal southern california bands (kaleidoscope, nitty gritty dirt band to name just 2) and photographer.

this weekend i went to a reception to celebrate his show, Vanishing West, a selection of his photographs of signage and facades, the kind we take for granted until we look out our car window and see less and less of them, of these days. there are tons more photos in his archive that he intends to compile into a book.

cd, looking forward to that!

(excuse the glare, enjoy the pix!)
