Fantasy Girl

In my teenage years I used to drool over (in the manner that adolescent boys do) photographs of Paulina Porizkova. Obviously I am not alone in this, as Google returns over 50,000 pages on her. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't a rabid fan or a stalker, but merely a connoisseur of her beauty.

Here is one of my favorite photos of her:

Then she had to go off and marry Ric Ocasek, the lead singer for The Cars. The disappointment I felt was less about losing her to another man, but more about the lack of intelligence or thoughtful decision-making that this implied. So she wasn't beautiful and brainy? How crushing for an adolescent of high expectations.

(To be fair, they've stayed together, take care of six kids (two of their own), and seem happy. Most of us could only hope for as much. As I learned as I grew older, brains do not make us happy.)

So why am I posting this? Because I may have met somebody that reminded me of the fantasy girl I had in my mind in those days. A dream, but in a more pragmatic form.

Stay tuned.
