I can't define "diaphanousness"

But I know it when I see it.

Why, umm, no.

"Does this gauzy dress-like garment with the rubber band thingy situated awkwardly beneath my posterior make me look fat?"

Isadora?

Shouldn't that be Isadora Duncan?

[Not when referring to her sister Elizabeth. -tterrace]

Ethereal

I love this photo! Reminiscent of the calm, less complex time, before our current high tech intensity.

It Happened to Us!

Our back yard has a big lawn surrounded by a small woods, making it feel quite pastoral. Once, our church filmed some interpretive dancers doing their bit back there. So, this picture is as relevant now as it was nearly a century ago!

Again??

Time to call Orkin.
