    fascinating topic today. It is such fun to listen to the two of you sharing ideas and coming up with another. The visual images really work for me, and the picture of the pavlova resonates with me. I can now see why rough and shiny things just don’t work for me. I have never been one for a jean jacket or structured blazer, or a leather coat or jacket, just feels wrong. Such a complex subject. I am constantly going back over previous podcasts, blogs and videos as well as pinterest to keep my eye up to date on the complexities of True Summer and not veer too far into the softer or brighter sides.
    Well done ladies.

      Christine and I are delighted whenever we hear that the podcast topics resonate with our listeners, so thank you for this, Diane. It’s good to know that it’s possible to convey visual images in an audio podcast 🙂
      It is a lifelong and fascinating project to keep exploring your Season and deepening your understanding of it, like you’re doing. And texture is another interesting aspect of interpreting and expressing our Seasons and ourselves.
      Again, thanks for listening and responding!
