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.

Joyeux Anniversaire!!

Catherine Deneuve is 69 today!! There is an amazing collection of her photos here.  Everyone who appreciates a true icon and an Epic of a Certain Age should raise a bourbon sour in her honor. Vive La Catherine!

Goodness, to be in the rarified air of such a stunning creature! She definitely represents an evolution for the species.

An all-time classic beauty! She always takes a bit of my breath away every single time I see *or hear* her.

I could listen to this "song" all day for her and for the glorious city she sings of http://youtu.be/x-E7s9vZ-_o Sigh!

Wishing you well!
