There’s only one really good life, and it’s the life that you know you want and you make it yourself.

-Diana Vreeland

I hope that the new documentary about Diana Vreeland, The Eye Has to Travel, makes it to Madrid. It  looks wonderful!

Watching the trailer, I was struck by the quote I cite above. It sums up beautifully what I’m trying to do with my own life, as hard as it is at times. When I feel discouraged, I’ll remind myself that this is the life I want, the life I’m making for myself. No complaining allowed. Mrs. Vreeland would never stand for it.
