Mrs. Merryl Josephson

Seventeen years ago I encountered a profound influence on my life. Mrs. Merryl Josephson was a force to recon with. As a new employee and protégé I was provoked to her earn her respect, but I made many miss steps. We shared common temperaments, however, which endeared her to me. She was an exacting personality with exquisite taste and an appreciation of quality and craftsmanship.

I cherished her company; in it I witnessed fleeting moments when she exhibited profound compassion, humility and a reverence of beauty in art and the natural world. In those rare moments of reflection when her guard was down, Mrs. J. would share lucid recollections of her youth while exuding warmth and courting sentimentality. I was privileged to have borne witness to all of those instances and to have known the true breadth of her range of emotion and personality.

Mrs. J. provided me with access to resources and to influential people whom I would otherwise never have had an opportunity to engage. Her son Josh Josephson continues that tradition of mentor-ship. His encouragement allows for the enrichment his mother fostered to perpetuate. For that I am extremely grateful.

Welcome to the inaugural posting to our Josephson blog. Our intention is to reflect how the culture and attitudes of the public domain influence how we regard eyeglasses and to celebrate  those  individuals  who wear them well.   It will be a platform from which to share how innovative eye-wear design inspires us.

We hope to affect you by featuring the creations of the vanguards of the industry, our eclectic influences and sources of inspiration.

Observe the spectacle!
