Palm Springs The Good Life Goes On
by Nancy Baron
A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous! Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film & documentary maker
The dreamy Palm Springs vibe washes over the traveler at the first sight from land or air of the vast windmill farm sprouting from the Southern California desert, surrounding the town like guards at the gate to paradise. Their whirling blades seem to clear the air, invoking a strong shift in sense of place. Here are my impressions of this storied American resort town and its mid century modern lifestyle. I document, with a positive bias, my ongoing and endless discoveries of my second home and its c ommunity of mid century modern enthusiasts. This large and tight-knit group of self-proclaimed modernists remain firmly committed to the mid century modern lifestyle and the preservation of its architecture. Their homes, cars, and clothes pay homage to this carefree post-World War II time in U. S. history that glows warmly in their vintage rear-view mirrors. Many of these modernists weren’t born yet in the 1950s and 1960s, but they find comfort in this reenactment of gentler times.
