    I’ve been away from my home/studio for almost 3 weeks . . . way too long. I was in Philadelphia for several weeks taking care of my Mom after knee replacement (that’s another story). But now I’m in Cape Cod with my husband’s family. This isn’t my first time, I’ve been here twice before. But this time I think I finally get it. […]

    . . . and stuck to all my senses.”
    – Joni Mitchell “Chelsea Morning”
    Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest, and this weekend was glorious. Up to now, we’ve been having “Juneuary”. I think we’ve invented a new word out here. Anyway, it has been a cold, wet spring and it is wonderful to […]

    Last night my youngest son graduated from high school. It was a surreal experience. The hall was filled with parents I recognized dating back to grade school. At soccer games and football games we stood together, huddled under umbrellas. We suffered through grade school band concerts together. We’ve talked to each other on the phone […]

    You know you’re in voiceover if you recognize the voices doing commercials, narrations, etc. on TV as friends or colleagues you’ve met at a seminar. Or if “Name The Celebrity Voicing That TV Commercial” is a common game at your house. You’re a VO if someone can refer to “Four Guys In A Limousine” […]

But as I continue with the blog, I find I like the process of writing a lot. Why? Because it’s interesting. I have to dig deep to find an authentic place to write from. I gu […]

    Pilates . . . what a strange and wonderful discipline. I’ve been at it for six weeks, and I’m now moving from privates 3x/week on the Reformer and Cadillac to duos with another person 2x/week (still with a trainer) and a private 1x/week. Most people don’t know what a reformer is, so here’s a video of a routine. Her […]

    I sure did love this quote by author Ann Lamott.
    “I think joy and sweetness and affection are a spiritual path. We’re here to know God, to love and serve God, and to be blown away by the beauty and miracle of nature. You just have to get rid of so much baggage to be light enough to dance, to sing, to play. You don’t hav […]

    I have been using a Palm Pilot since I forget when. My Palm has been my constant companion for a lot of years, has held important details of my life, addresses, calendar, games and books . . . lots of books. On my last phone upgrade I did a bunch of research trying to decide between Palm and Blackberry. I ultimately decided on the Palm Tr […]

    I’ve been an exerciser for most of my life. I started with Yoga in high school. From there I went to swimming, running, aerobics with Jane Fonda, Callenetics, Yoga with Racquel Welch, Step, Body for Life, elliptical, treadmill, and Water Gym . . . I love exercise, and I’ve done a lot of different types. But nothing has ever ch […]

    No matter what your political views, this article in Fast Company is worth checking out. Marketing anything, including yourself usually involves creating a brand, and the brand that is Obama represents the reality of life after the Boomers. His appeal to the 18-29 year old millennial generation ( who will outnumber the Boomers by 2010) is […]
