My son is a senior in high school at CATE a boarding school in Carpinteria, a little sleepy beach town 20 min south of Santa Barbara. We are in the throws of the college application process, early apps are due November 1, he is doing the last of the last so we can press “submit”. […]

Most of you know I am a crazy cat lady, leo the lioness, kitty lover. My mother loves cats too, so of course growing up we always had a cat. There’s something special about kitty love, the soft meow, the gentle kneading and those mesmerizing eyes that can melt your heart. Blue joined our family […]

Listen to your Spirit…

“You can either waltz boldly onto the floor of life and live the way you know your spirit is nudging you to, or you can sit quietly by the wall and recede in the shadows of fear and self-doubt.” -OPRAH Came across this quote and thought about how it took me a while to listen […]

What’s your take on aging?

October 15th, 2014 (No Comments)

Came across this article in the New Yorker 25 quotes from famous women on aging.  Love this one from Dolly Parton: “I will never retire unless I have to. As long as I’m able to get up in the morning, get that makeup on and my high heels on, and even if I can’t wear […]

I love Zora Neale Hurston, and the other day I stumbled across this quote on instagram. This is so powerful…How many of us are silent about painful situations? In my current life I am an open book, at times maybe to open, but I know the silent pretend everything is okay is not good. It’s […]

ON Bodies and Other Things

Breaking the 55 speed limit, has its bumps in the road- not that I’m obsessed with my body, but yes I do want to be  fit and healthy and if a side benefit is a toned physique I’ll take that. So I’m on top of my workout game, which is keeping me sore on most […]

Busy is a choice . Tired and exhausted, usually is not a choice. Yes, this past week has been crazy, starting Saturday I had a senior shoot in downtown LA in bazillion degree weather. We went to the Bradbury building where we were quickly interrogated about our cameras and  asked was this a commercial shoot, […]

The Trip to Bountiful

First and foremost Cicely Tyson is fabulous! I’m not sure of her age, the NY Times peg her as 88 and some other sources state that she is 80, all I know is that she carries the production for the entire 2 hours whatever her age is. Cicely Tyson sings, dances, and her silent expressions […]

Zucchini Pasta & Marinara Sauce

October 2nd, 2014 (2 Comments)

On warm days it’s nice to have a salad for dinner, especially when I am on “program” and working on dropping a few pounds. We have been having a nonstop heat wave here in Cali. This is one of my favorite dishes to make- I love pasta but pasta does not love me, so these […]

What are you willing to give up?

October 1st, 2014 (1 Comment)

I’m always reading something, online, magazines, a book or the newspaper-I’m old school I still get it delivered daily, I keep my notebook handy and if I come across something interesting I will jot it down, so the other day I came across this quote: “People who look like they have everything they want are […]
