Dear friends and readers all, Welcome to my modest and quiet celebration of four years of Personal Papers! Thanks for being here, take one of the plums, and enjoy today. As our nights turn cooler, my mind naturally opens more to inner thoughts and the deeper aspects of life. Precious transitions are upon us, and, as a friend once told me, the world needs all our love. But let’s hover in a summer mode just a bit longer. This issue is light on writing, and mostly visual for a dash of panache and perhaps a bit of a smile. There will be plenty of time for more thoughtful articles in the months to come.
Thank you kindly for the link! I wish I could edit my kitchen, but only one person can be in it at a time!
What a lovely essay about kitchens, and as I think you know, Carol, kitchens serve as metaphor in my memoir on love and marriage. Tati's Mon Oncle is pure joy. You're also ever so generous about recommending other Substacks--in this case Caitlín Matthews . What a good soul you are. So folks, read about kitchen design and close your summer with Carol Sill's Personal Papers.
Yes, congratulations and thank you, Carol.
Congrats on your Fruit and Flowers Anniversary.
This was a great comfort. Especially Jacques Tati who I haven't thought about in a dog's age. Remember "M. Hulot's Holiday?"
