Local Girl Makes Good, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:23am


Remember these tights, from this post on same? By Marilyn Pollack Naron, the drawing is practical and charming at once.

Happily, you can now browse a whole website of Marilyn’s work. So endearing. Want to be cheered up, or, alternatively, add to your already broad smile? Go look.

Wait, there’s more, she has also illustrated a cookbook about meatloaf, authored by Frank Bruni and Jennifer Steinhauer.

In other, sadder news, Leslie at Hostess Of The Simple Bungalow has lost her mother. She might feel support in condolences.

Me I’ve done nothing lately except host a presumably quite robust rhinovirus. Cough. Am recovering. I hope you’re all healthy and that you have a good weekend.

    It’s delightful to see Marilyn’s work reaching a wider and wider audience. She’s a talented chef, blogger, writer, and artist. I look forward to what she does next. We can say we knew her when.:)

    Sorry you’ve been down with the Robust Rhinovirus. It visited my house as well. Every time I thought I was past it, I’d get sick again. When I mentioned it on IG, it was reassuring to hear others had it in the same here and gone and here again fashion. Rest was the consistent Rx. I’m happy to report there is a light at the end of the tunnel, because I’m feeling fine now. The recent sunshine helps.

    Take care.
    xo.

    @Katherine C. James, So glad you are feeling better. I’m trying to rest, but it sort of infuriates me. And yes, we knew her when!

    I spent my week with some virus that invited it’s bacterial friends to party in my ears. Fun! Fun!

    I clicked on the Meatloaf book link and was pleasantly surprised to see the Powell’s website. I order a good deal from Amazon but this reminds me to spread the love and book $$ around more. Thanks!

    @Thea, Oh I haven’t had an ear infection since I was 8 years old but I remember it as torture. Hope the bacteria is long-conquered. And yes, it will be Powell’s from now on unless some changes are made to Amazon’s policites.

    @Allison Mohr, Am on the upswing but I suspect it will be 2 weeks here too before I feel truly recovered. Hope you are 100% soon.

    Love the illustrations – something very “Bloomsbury” about them I think – so fresh.

    And that rhinovirus – I had it on and off for 3 months! I finally took an antibiotic when it turned into a sinus infection. I hope you recover soon. xo

    @Kathy, Three months!?!?!?! Oh please please no;). I know what you mean about Bloomsbury, sort of sentiment with intelligence and a little langour?

    Lisa, I hope you feel better soon!

    I love the drawing, and I love black tights – wear them every single day. I went to Marilyn’s site and loved her work. The “memoir” section has a number of evocative drawing (paintings?) with short descriptions – what a wonderful way to preserve family history!

    @Marie, Yes her memoir work is perhaps my favorite. The family history/graphic novel look.

    Lisa, I found I can’t Reply to your Reply—I guess these are blog comments, not Russian nesting dolls:)—but I did want to tell you I’m with you 1000% on how infuriating it is to have to rest, and rest, and then rest some more. When I’m told to rest, I suddenly feel a need to rearrange the furniture. Take it from me, the resting part helps; it’s worth it to be bored. When I was too ill to feel inspired by a book or a film, I watched The Big Bang Theory from its inception to the present, and was impressed by the character development, and the understanding of the way autism spectrum disorder can manifest among, in their case scientists, and in my case my Silicon Valley engineer co-workers. I love the addition of educated women to the cast, the unexpected mothers portrayed by Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf, and the interactions of the Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler characters. I could now do a dissertation on the program, so my rest was thought-provoking and life enhancing. Eat miso, mushrooms, ginger, garlic, and spinach. They help your immune system. xo.
