I love Hong Kong  ....   Hong Kong Ngo Tsui Aoi Hong Kong in cantonese means  "I adore Hong Kong". It is a sincere declaration of love for a city that has fascinated me since I was a little girl sitting on my Aunt Anita's lap, listening to her tell me about her travels to the charming and exotic Orient ... HK does not have half-measures. Or you love it or you detest it. The first major decision when you arrive here, is to decide on what side you want to be. The white Westerners love living on the island...

A clique of individuals ....   Rome, Italy 1991   Going to a birthday party in gorgeous villas on Appia Antica, in Rome, in the early 90's, was something we did often. But, to capture this group was literally, "Old School" ... I have other photos where Sting and Adelmo, (alias Zucchero) are talking music ... Donatella Versace was always laughing her head off at people saying we were twins ... I arrived with her, dressed with one of my favourite vintage Gianni Versace "Andy Warhol" jackets, jean...

The answers you don't expect and nobody will tell you ....   Sometimes the truth is uncomfortable ... We close one ear, but listen from the other, or it seems, as in we didn't catch on. This is what certain people want you to believe ... My Grandfather, Nonno Frank was an immigrant. He left Terra Vecchia, a province of the beguiling Cosenza in Calabria in 1921 ... He arrived thru Ellis Island in New York with his Father, Mother and 6 brothers and sisters. He was only 10 years old ... His plan was to seek a new beginning ... A shrewd and cle...

Patience torture ....   China   We have been travelling to China for the past 10 years and have been living here in Hong Kong for the last 5 ... (I am repeating myself since people do OFTEN ask "Where do you live now?") .... Getting somewhere by car, train or even plane, has always been easy as pie.  Until now ... My wording will in no way come close to the ordeal we went thru this summer, when travelling from Hong Kong to Beijing and Shanghai. I know that there are a lot of you who are on my sa...

On the morning of their 3rd day of school, they asked me, "Mommy, how many days do we have to go to school?" ....

Calculated hypocrisy  .....   Pity and the ability "to get under our skin" emotionally, isn't denied to anyone when it doesn't cost us a penny and, it is used to not unruffle our guilty consciences ... But don't let them pull the wool over your eyes! As Rhett Butler said, "Tomorrow is another day" ... and WHO has had the gall to "allow" us to become compassionate, will bend our emotions to their own self-interest and advantages ... And WHO "has been touched" (how many actually were moved with sincerity and without...
