The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."
-- Nick Tosches, Where Dead Voices Gather

What pops up first when you Cuil Lari Lane?

Answer:
This 16-room Shelter Island property, about 3.25 acres, has 300 feet of private frontage on Gardiners Bay and includes a dock that accommodates anything from a seaplane to a yacht. The total square footage is 16,000 square feet. Built in 2005, it has a living room, dining room, paneled library, kitchen, garden room (with bluestone-tiled terrace), six bedrooms and baths (plus a powder room), office, media room, and fitness room. There are seven fireplaces with hand-carved mantels, arched and bay windows, and coffered ceilings. The guest house contains a living area, garden room, three bedrooms, two baths, and a three-car garage. The pool house, which comes with an infinity-edge pool that looks as if it's floating, is a studio with a living room, kitchen, and bath. $21.9 Million

I just looked at the Playbook centerfold archives and Lari Laine looks like she was in the locker room at a golf course for this photo shoot.
