About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

A Dull Utterance

A friend or foe, depending how you take it, said my daily utterances, as they put it, have become a tad dull. Excuse me, while I slip my head in the oven. They miss my monthly Carlyle pieces, and I … Continue reading

God’s Girls

I received such nice comments on my Pollyanna piece, making me glad I wrote it, after almost deleting it because it was so, you know, Pollyanna-ish. Has had me thinking about the three Gs. Grace, Gratitude, and Generosity…the three places … Continue reading

Best Story of the Week

There I am, en route to the ATM, my checking account, due to the season, on life support, trying so hard to mind my own business, when, in my hawklike eyeline, what do I see? A mother yelling at her … Continue reading

As The Crow Flies

 This morning, as I made my way through the park, I was suddenly accompanied by a good, 50 crows. They flew overhead like an all black squadron, going back and forth as if they were doing relays. And how quiet … Continue reading

Uncouth Youth

 For those of you who may not know, Pollyanna, the heroine in Eleanor H. Porter’s 1913 classic children’s book of the same name, is code for optimism. A Pollyanna is someone always opting for sunshine, rather than clouds. Definitely a … Continue reading
