My old roommate Marcus (who will soon be my roommate again - he’s moving to Mexico!) took these photos of me lying in bed in our apartment in Bangkok shortly before I moved back to Mexico, last April. Oh, Bangkok! (...)
For now, the pleasures of Mexico are beautiful and near, and those of Bangkok the most beautiful of memories.
Earlier, I posted some photos of Israel taken by Simon Phillips during his recent visit to my studio in Mexico. I decided to spread out the photos taken that afternoon over some time, as there are so many. These, and the entries over the next couple of days, were all taken that afternoon, of Israel and Rafael (and myself in a couple, chastely dressed), posing in the studio. Israel an Rafael made a lovely couple; photos of them interacting as taken by the talented Simon are coming soon!
I think that Simon’s camera excited Rafael’s exhibitionist streak; I was laying in bed, watching him pose for Simon, when he suddenly leapt on me and started to gently kiss and stroke me. The photos below are of our happy love making on that cloudy morning.
In honor of the arrival of Simon, a talented photographer friend whom I met in Bangkok and who is visiting me in Mexico from his home in Germany, I threw a little party; a violin recital with a ballet performance, in my studio. Naturally, it was a costumed event, in which I dressed my guests in costumes of my design. It was possibly the most magical party I have ever hosted; the music was exquisite, the dancing superb, the atmosphere festive and jovial. I recently made a collection of hoop skirts and floor length gowns for my female guests; it was the first time they had been worn at an event; the sight of my friends so dressed, as I unexpectedly turned a corner or wandered into a room, made me feel that I had accidentally fallen into another era, rather more glamorous than our own. Here I am before the guests arrived, dressing my beloved Rafael for the party in his new costume of gold and pearls. Photos of the party follow! Go to My Blog and see the rest of the pictures!
