This is Clothilde. She lives on my dresser, and is the first thing I see when I awake each morning. She was particularly striking in the sunlight on Sunday morning when I took this shot. She is fabulous. And perhaps best of all, she was a gift from MKL. What other man would surprise me with a big pink chicken? He’s a keeper.
