I love that second to last photo with your dad. One can see the pride in his eyes as he gazes at you.
"Excessives Abound" must be a rare collectors edition now with such a limited number. Have we seen pages from it?
Your Daddy looked so cute with those two little girls. Quite impish.
The last picture with you and your Dad is my new favorite.
I never tire of hearing about your precious family and friends and looking at the pictures. I am truly a nostalgia buff.
I'm sorry you can't read my blog, after the New Year I will have it fixed. Don't worry about it, you aren't missing much ;)
I so enjoy seeing photos of you and your family, Naomi. And you have known some of the most interesting people!
How I wish I could've been in your neck of the woods and a few years older in '78 to have been a part of your art show...not to mention the after party. The painting is beautiful. Wonder what "inner feelings" it reflected.
Love your sister's sexy blouse! lol She must've turned a lot of heads in the 70s (and you, too!). Looks like you all had so much fun together. I can see how these photos take you back to a wonderful time.
That last picture of you and Daddy Joe...you have the same sparkle in your eyes! Love that photo!
I love the photos of you and your dad!
Wow, these photos are fantastic! And oy, that picture of Kendall and Brooke with your dad! I had no idea they ever even met him! Love these. And I loved when Betty wore her hair that long, in her Irene Lorenzo days. What fun it all looked. Keep scanning!
I'm so glad you have so many photos of your wonderful life. And I hope you don't get tired of my saying, Thanks so much for sharing these with us!
Such precious photos and so glad to hear Betty is recovering well.
Of all your talents Naomi which is the one of which you are most proud: writing, directing, acting, your music, your painting? You certainly must have had the best fairy god-mothers when they were handing out talents.
I was amused to see your sister's dress; I had a similar revealing one in the sixties and I wore it visiting my sister in the States and she gave me a right rollicking.(a good telling off)
I think it's better to learn and grow from the bad experiences and then remember the good ones. There's no sense holding all that negative stuff inside your heart or your head.
These are precious shots Naomi and days might gone by but memories stayed forever ya :D
I'm glad Betty is doing well and may be home for Christmas. I am wishing VERY hard that she is home by Christmas!!!
Your sister Gene was sporting some major cleavage with her low cut blouse. Va Va Voom! Hahaha. She was showing off her assets.
Like you said, that blouse would not be anything out of the norm today. If you've got them, why not flaunt them a bit??
Your art is beautiful, expressive, intricate, and reflective of your feelings. I'm so glad you got the recognition you deserve for it.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year!!!
I'm sprinkling you with magic fairy dust right now. This guarantees you happy holidays!
It sounds like a wonderful experience and the photos are great, beautiful especially those with your dad.
Great memories and wonderful of you to share them with photos. Glad to hear your friend, Betty, continues on the mend.
i've said it before, you are so fortunate to have so many photo's of these happy times of your life! and, of course, I love how you share them!!
I never thought about it before, but it is true, we really are not apt to take photos of unhappy times or events. Perhaps that is why I cherish my old ones so. Art---really hate when people dissect art with words, might as well kick it. Wonderful photos and memories. I hope you feel better soon.
Wow what a wonderful time in your life my friend.. What special memories these are to have.. Hope you are enjoying them.. Thanks for sharing your life. I have learned so much about you reading here. I have learned you are an actress and now an artist... Wow. what an amazing person you are...
I think it's great that you have all these photos to look back on and share them with us.
I love seeing your pictures! the one of you and your father is precious.
Betty had such long, beautiful hair!! glad to hear she is doing better.
Great photos and wonderful time, Naomi! I always enjoy seeing your memory's pictures, they are very precious indeed! Love also seeing the Naomi Caryl Brochure of your beautiful paintings.
A big hug to you!
Hi Naomi! Your memories are such a treasure to share. I just love reading and browsing on the photos. I feel so honoured to know someone of your talent and grace.
More lovely memories of good times spent with friends!! I enjoyed this post, as I always enjoy reading about your life and seeing all the photos of family and friends!
I do hope that Betty gets to come home for Christmas! I'm glad she is doing well. I saw her on a rerun of All in The Family a couple of days ago and wondered how she was.
"Photographs such as these, help you to remember the better times and in some cases the best of times, as opposed to those other times that only break your heart."
So true. I love the photo of you and Oliver. And the precious photos of you and your father. I agree with other readers, he looks incredibly proud of his talented daughter. And you also wrote a book? What Miss Naomi can't you do?
Oh I am glad I am back reading blogs again. Yours is always so incredibly interesting, inspiring and a joy. I personally love it that you focus on all the positives in your life - there is so much to be so very proud of. Your exhibition brochure is gorgeous too. Wish I had been there to see it myself. Oh and Betty had long very thick hair too. I love seeing the pictures. Thanks again for sharing.
