SO, everyone as a child had a character from a movie.book.whatever. that he or she admired and wished to resemble in his or her life. For Passport Smiles, that was Barbara Streisand's character (Judy) in What's Up Doc, minus the extreme bad luck and catastrophic events she causes simply by being, herself. Yet, she embodied a strong woman whom Passportwanted to become: sharply witty, lighthearted, highly intelligent, uniquely styled, oddly beautiful, confident, and extremely quirky.
Judy: I know I'm different, but from now on I'm going to try and be the same. Howard: The same as what? Judy: The same as people who aren't different.
Eunice: Don't you know the meaning of propriety? Judy: Propriety; noun: conformity to established standards of behavior or manner, suitability, rightness, or justice. See "etiquette."
The title of this blog originates from Joni Mitchell's "People's Parties": "They've got stamps of many countries/ They've got passport smiles." In sum, this blog is dedicated to musings on Travel, culture, art and fashion. Take off your coat. Make a cup of tea. Stay for a while.
