We are fans of James Griffioen, the former San Francisco corporate litigator who now lives a life of grace and extra vowels with the little Griffioens in Detroit. We link to his hugely popular blog, Sweet Juniper, from time to time because he not only has amazing photographs, he has a pretty vital mission statement: making your own fun.
So we are glad to see that Oprah (and, presumably, her secret half-sister) has gotten on the Sweet Juniper train. She even flew him to Brooklyn, we’ve heard, for a photo shoot for February’s issue of O magazine.
It doesn’t, of course, entirely make up for making a star out of Jenny McCarthy and all the other celebrity shamans and quacks her television show exalts. But, dammit, it’s a start.
