We leave tomorrow and we will not be back until August 19. I shall not be online while we are away.
During our absence, one of our dearest friends will depart on his own glorious vacation.
J.R. Donasco, one of God’s kindliest and most precious creatures, will be traveling in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina in the latter half of August, visiting Mexico City, Rio De Janeiro, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires.
J.R. writes about art, literature, music, drama, opera, poetry, ballet, European football, Marcel Proust and the world of high fashion in what is indisputably the classiest site on the worldwide web. I fear that the world may come to a standstill—if not an outright collapse—while he is away, unable to sustain and refresh itself with a daily dose of high culture, beauty and inspiration.
All I can say, J.R., is that I am relieved that your vacation will overlap, at least in part, with our own! Hurry back! You will be missed greatly.
We wish you the happiest and most splendid of journeys!
