Wasn't "dragon lady" a name our GIs used to call pretty young Vietnamese girls during the last hopeless war? I am picturing white loose fitting kimono-like dresses with white hats. Teagrapple

Rae, Dragon Lady" refers to an Asian woman who is perceived as seductive, desirable but at the time she is untrustworthy. I wanted to diffuse the stereotype with this image, which I think/hope is elegant and earthy and wise.

OK. Glad you cleared that up. I love the feet on the collage. They are definitely grounded. Teagrapple Rae

You're welcome, Rae. I wanted her to be both grounded and ethereal.

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
