Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.

I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

A Manifesto For Happiness And Style

An ad slogan some years ago said "Be Your Own Dog". A cornerstone of the Epic philosophy. Fashion week in Paris has seemingly concluded. Bringing to focus the high tension that ladies of style feel this time of year as they take measure of themselves and their wardrobes and put that vision beside whatever it is they find on the runways. To me, the larger issue transcends a person's gender. The Epic notion is one of being enthused about being oneself. In a distinctive way. When this is accomplished, the Epic can get the absolute most from every minute without wasting them trying to be someone, or something, else.

In that regard, my readers should click over to French Essence right away. To read the best plan for happiness and style I have come across in a very long time. Essential wisdom for anyone striving for Epic living. Perhaps particularly useful to ladies this time of year. Post Paris Fashion Week. Thanks to Vicki Archer for a marvelous article. A timely statement for anyone whose goal is to live to the full in each and every moment.

So True- I love Vicki's blog- she has it just down. Today I am rather disappointed with myself because I am wearing jeans and a cashmere short sleeved t-shirt. Chic- but BORING! But it is raining here in Santa Monica (a very rare occurrence) and I am at a loss for what else to wear!

On the way. Thanks.

I really should be readying for the party tonight. But you've been so pleasantly diverting.

(Nice watch a post back....)
