Eduardo Fernandez – That Vintage Smile

My grandfather, Eduardo Fernandez, in 1947. He was in the Peruvian Air Force and eventually a Colonel. 

I love old photographs. It makes me feel like I’m spying on the past and at the same time connecting to it. I especially love old photographs of my family.

A Picture’s Worth A Thousand Words….

….a journey through my adventures on the 1st Broadway National Tour of West Side Story.

I had almost forgotten what a special time this was in my life. Thankfully, the tour is now in Toronto and the memories are flooding back.

So when I first set eyes on this collection of Penguin Classics I concluded that I was going to have to get every book in the collection. Even if I had already read them. I didn’t care. I realized that they were not just gonna be good re-reads, but they were also going to be an amazing addition to any room or space! They are just so beautiful!

I have this thing with using books as decoration. I even own books about decorating with books. If there are books on the subject it makes me feel like I’m not alone. There are others like me. Other souls who see the beauty of books.

I was Beauty!

I just finished playing Beauty in a wonderful production of Beauty And The Beast at Sudbury Theatre Centre. Couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to spend 5 weeks with. It was a joy. I thought I would fiddle around with one of the show photos….I love this antique look.
