i came upon this blog about a year ago, and was instantly drawn in. veronique de turenne writes about malibu, nature, dogs, books, life with such heart, soul, and dry humor. she's a wonderful writer; i sent her an unabashed fan letter, and we became fast friends. we already have a tradition--having dinner on solstice nights. she introduced me to diesel, and it's become one of my favorite bookstores.check out yesterday's post, and click on the word "friend" to see why this particular post tickles me so. but then go back, and enjoy veronique's writing and photographs. you'll feel you spent the day--or a few years, depending on how far back you read--in malibu. not the glitzy, tabloid version, but the wilderness where the santa monica mountains meet the pacific ocean...the malibu i love. incidentally, to make the circle complete, my fascination with cheyenne is shared by one of my favorite writers--joe monninger.
Thank you to Peter Schwartz and Third Face (LITERARY DISCOURSE FOR THE POST POST-MODERN SOPHISTICATE) for including our Luanne Rice video in their excellent blog.
I took this photo last week in the garden of my agent's house in Hollywood. The piece is carved concrete, English, and old. One of a pair, Ron is calling them the Literary Men. I believe this one is the Second Face.
