I like an expert/specialist who can still talk to me about their expertise with patience and respect. It’s an important quality to have.

I wonder if it was neutral tones or bright and bold? If we know anything of Stein, bright and bold is my best guess.

That said, I DO try to speak the truth in love!

It feels incredibly condescending and self-important. People usually ask because they want to appreciate the piece by getting more information and insight on it. Even if there is no super deep meaning, one could reply, “I simply liked how the words sounded (or colors looked, etc.) together.”

My grandmother was quite sassy and liked to bang pots and pans and flirt with young men. Funny how that becomes endearing when you’re older.

I loved Midnight in Paris( big Woody fan). Yes, it would be fun having a home filled with such creative force. Imagine constant inspiration! Coco Chanel was also gathering as well as supporting artists and writers.

You know what? Most people in the neighborhood love her for it. I have been a recipient of the unsolicited feedback once or twice, and often find myself thanking her for it!
