First class for a farm in Virginia

The photographs from the article in the gentlewoman

Kathy Horne (written horyn, pronounced horn), 67, the legendary fashion journalist, announced her retirement from the New York Times in 2014. Ten years later, and we already know she didn’t really retire. For the past decade she has been writing for the cut and mainly tends the farm in Virginia, where she moved in 2016 and where she grows dahlias, tulips and peonies. She grows flowers not as a hobby, the farm is a small business, but a financial business that justifies itself (when a friend who used to be a fashion reporter for the Wall Street Journal came to visit the farm and asked Horn how many working hands she employs, she answered: only my two hands).

She was interviewed for the winter issue of the gentlewoman, and the interviewer reports that during the interview Horne wore a plaid flannel shirt and sweatpants and that after dinner she sent him to peel potatoes.

Here are three quotes from there (in a very free translation):
01 “The best journalistic writing advice she received from her father, who is also a journalist, was: shorten each of her texts by fifty percent.”
02 Even in the days when she wrote to the New York Times, she lived an hour and a half away from the city, at the end of every workday she would drive home at night: “And become a different person.”
03 “I like the challenge of trying to understand something new. try to be good at something Very few things threaten me today.’

A return to existing things in the world, as a sentiment, a basic thing that is not subject to debate.
(Just in case, this interview reminded me of Sahar Shalu’s and my prediction for 2024. Growing flowers, looking at the sky and seeing stars).

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growin’ like a breeze
