Do you remember my Post on my favorite blue shirt? Dianne, the former owner of it, wrote me some lovely words, full of memories and affection.
what a treat! You are the Life Style Go-To-Gal. Inge, your photographer, captures
you. The shirt shows you off. But you look good in anything.
I remember our time spent at SUNYA and your apartment on Central Avenue, Albany with all the „international“ students. I liked that you guys had a rice cooker which was used every day – that is a testimony to you truly being an international bunch.
Looking back further – when I spent time in Iran and India and then settled in Montreal. I met Ron Welton who had a fabulous way with fashion. He was always in my closet and thought „your blue shirt“ (the indigo-blue shirt) was the prize. I saved it for you
because, as he would say, it shows you off. You and Ron would have been great friends, and, I think, you seeing his art work (which is a self-portrait) would agree. He has a flair.
The girls in the photos were my roommates at the University of Maryland when we were getting our bachelor’s degree long, long time ago. This was before „hippies“ – we were wearing Mary Quant and sweater-skirt sets. Then we graduated . . .
I found these old pictures of us – dressed as Hippies back in the day. Anne and John are on a trek in Nepal, Marlene is modelling hip-hugger, bell bottoms, and me – Bill Lirange drew me at some Peace Corps apartment in Tehran.
