This warms my heart and turns the creases of my eyes into a smile. 

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter‘s 72-year love story began like many others, with a movie date. And that was all the former president needed to know that Rosalynn was the one. In a new interview with The Washington Post, Carter, 93, recalls seeing his wife for the first time at the Plains United Methodist Church in his hometown … Continued

Margot Kidder

I was 8 years old when this woman flew into my heart; in the arms of a man, Christopher Reeves, who also swept in profoundly. I will forever miss their presence on this earth and know they are smiling down upon us. I reached out to Maggie, Margot’s daughter, to extend my support and friendship … Continued

Baby bird

Emmett and I spent most of this beautiful day gardening. As I was pruning some plants in our front yard I noticed a baby bird sitting very, very still as it was perfectly camouflaged in my sage. At first I was worried because it didn’t move for a loooooooonnnnnngggggg time. Then my lovely husband explained that … Continued

Hannah Gasby is My New Favorite Human

*SPOILER ALERT* I feel the ripples of last night’s viewing of Nanette on Netflix. I am so moved by Hannah Gadsby’s words that I took some time to transcribe a part of her special. If you have not seen it yet you might want to watch it first to hear her voice carry these words … Continued

How could they?

*Parts Unknown Indeed* To quote June Osbourne from Handmaid’s Tale, ‘What the actual fuck?’ And then as soon as I say that I am also struck with the wisdom to be able to answer that question; personal choice—that’s what. I am so sad, so devastated by another’s choice to leave in this manner. And to … Continued

Rest In Peace Kate.

For pain to supersede what love used to flood, that is what is cutting so deep into my heart today as I process this news. I personally feel connected to Kate Spade for many obvious reasons, like the rest of the world touched by her creations, grace and spirit. I am impacted two-fold by this due … Continued

Compassionate Suicide

I found this article very interesting. As you all know, my mother chose to end her life almost seven years ago so this topic touches close to home for me. I feel David Goodall was able to conduct his death with as much grace and dignity possible. My mother managed to do the same for … Continued

Will you please do me a favor?

I know the power of social media and I know the power of like-minded, amazingly, kind, loving and beautiful humans like all of you. Will you please support my dear friend Robin’s boutique flower studio, Mulberry Row in Sherman Oaks? Go show her some radical love please! She owns the loveliest little shop and I … Continued
