Tea on an Autumn Morning

Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

The Willow Manor Ball 2011

I took this photo two nights ago in Danbury, Connecticut.

The Willow Manor Ball is underway, and with her usual elegant and creative style, Tess has gathered the finest from around the world. Under this hazy Harvest moon, I have channeled the spirit of Steve Jobs as my 'date.' Amidst fascinating conversation on the creative process, we've managed to bob for a few apples. He has me beat at that game, though. Nevertheless, iDance and iSing under the full moon with delight.

Thank you, Willow, for sharing your creativity with us!


  1. Talk about creativity --- you've cornered the market.

  2. I know - it's the incredible creative imagination of every reveller that has me enchanted tonight.
    Steve Jobs must have had a whale of a time :)

  3. p.s. love the autumn leaves of your blog template... glorious.

  4. Nice to have met your gentle presence at the ball.

  5. I should have bobbed for apples too - my feet are killing me :)

  6. Dear Jeanne: Everything is so dreamy I don't want to go home! Think Hiram is asking...:)Chiccoreal

  7. Gosh, I thought I recognised that familiar 'ashen face'. But, alas, I couldn't get any closer for the mob of adoration surrounding you both. But, oh, could I have picked that sagely man's brain, brilliant that he is/was. And bobbing for apples? What a treat. Now doesn't our Lady Tess think of everything? :)

  8. Helen: You are so very kind. x
    Shaista: Indeed! and thank you!
    Yoli: Nice to have met you, too.
    Dana: I hope you were able to soak your tired soles in the apple tub... after we plucked all the fruit. ; )
    Yes, it is, Chica! Thanks for dropping by.
    Catfish: Yes, it was quite mobbed at the bob booth. Indeed, Lady Tess is the BEST!

  9. It was so great to see you and Steve...thanks for making the Willow Manor Ball 2011 so much fun...
