Meaningful work

I thought this story in the Wall Street Journal about Amanda Burden was really interesting. Here's a woman who certainly can afford not to work but, at 67, is at the top of her profession as New York's director of city planning. She knew Jackie, too.

My book cover?

This could change, but here is the book jacket we are leaning toward. What do you think? #JackieO #ThirdAct

Jackie's televised tour of the White House

I frequently watched this 1962 TV special of Jackie giving a tour of the White House renovation and redecoration, and thought about how seriously she took historic preservation. She brought the same experience and passion for preservation and design to the 1975 fight to save Grand Central Terminal from being redeveloped.

You can't tell from the black and white images, but her boucle suit was burgundy.

A little inspiration during the writing process...

I listened to this song from Human Sexual Response alot. Of course, it's called "I want to be Jackie Onassis."
