Everything but the kitchen sink flowers that somehow came out kinda ok? Oh, and butterflies all the way from China! They make me happy and look as if they came from the garden, which some did, and I’ll post the table later. If I’m still standing. Happy Easter and Passover to you all. .

Fun family dinner with (almost) everybody home and and early celebration of @tomdittmer ‘s birthday! Loving my new spring linens from @leontinelinens in navy and white, crisp and fresh, and shamelessly proud of our very own viburnum in their first season of real blooming. #finally Mixed in here with hydrangeas from @florabundanceinc

A quote from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, sent to me this morning by a friend. Just right, and just, and right. Spirited conversation last night in our multi-faith-?-faith family all gathered here at the ranch for the weekend, but we all agree the point is this.

A shaft of light and a ray of hope this morning illuminating the cross on the altar at Notre Dame. This beautiful and haunting photo a repost from my friend @prince.dimitri who wrote so eloquently of this loss for Paris and for the world. In this holiest of weeks in the Christian year, the truth of resurrection has never been more compelling, more certain, or more necessary. SDG
