DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Newspaper day

Black, white, and red all over:

Pretty busy day, lots of court appearances. Of course, I not exactly "overslept"... more like "under-hustled" this morning. So my best option was yesterday's pants and a sweater. Definitely cold and crappy enough this week to adjourn my ceremonial "Packing Away of the Sweaters"!

This bracelet is a gift from a would-be client years ago. As in, he wanted to hire me, but as we discussed what he wanted, and I probed more into related matters... I talked him into dropping the whole idea. So, while doing the right thing, I didn't make a dime!

A few days later, a box and card were dropped by my office. In the box, this lovely little token!
I wound up friends with the "client", and although I've lost track of him these last couple years... I really appreciate being appreciated.

In my current position, positive reinforcement from clients is rare, to put it lightly. They often tell me I suck, I'm not a "real" lawyer, I'm not doing anything for them, etc. So having a physical reminder that some people appreciate me professionally is a real boost. I know it sounds silly... but there it is.

I really need to do my Feb/March recap... it's overdue. Maybe tomorrow... "Clean House" is on, and I'm beat!

Jacket: Talbot's
Sweater: VanHusen outlet
Pants: *sigh*
Earrings: Premier Designs
Bracelet: gift from a friend

  1. I relate. Too few clients appreciate our efforts and, when one does, the gesture stands out.

    A client of mine whom I helped with several matters gave me a used coat-stand. Despite how ordinary the object is -- and I did say "used" -- I have the stand in my office. It makes me feel good to see it because of what it represents: gratitude.
