Spark Off Rose

So, if you are so inclined to come see me bare my soul before an audience, buy a ticket for the next Spark Off Rose show, which is one week from today, Monday October 1st.

Spark Off Rose puts on a monthly series, where seven people are invited to write and read one of their own true stories. If you are a fan of This American Life or The Moth, you will love this.

Tickets can be purchased in advance, here.

In any event, come laugh, cry, jeer.....

Gimme Shelter

In unrelated shallower but far more fun news....I love these bags from the SHELTER collective, Shelter Protects You. Some of my faves....

I first spotted them via Honey Kennedy. You can buy some here. I always accept gifts.....

As the world turns

I am sure, if you read/watch/listen to the news, you have heard about the anti-American rioting occurring in the Middle East. This is all a reaction to a poorly made film that denigrates the Prophet Mohammed.

The whole mess smacks of ignorance on all sides. It's all rather baffling. I know this shouldn't be a surprise, but I just don't know how we have all become so divided...not just "over there." But, here too.

It seems like increasingly we are drawing lines to separate us- politically, economically, socially, religiously, ethnically. I choose not to live in that world, in that mind set. But, as I look around, it seems like the majority of people do.

Maybe these types of situations explode because of all the subtle ways we differentiate ourselves from one another. Or, maybe I'm just living in another dimension.

You know that moment when...

You know that moment when things seem to fall in to place, when your life starts to make sense, when you know you are on the right path, when the universe lays it all out before you, when you realize that it's not a question of dreams coming true one day but in fact they are coming true at this very moment, when you wonder why you didn't notice sooner that it always could have been this way.

Yeah, that moment. It's there. It's been there all along.

How's your week going???

Earthquake weather

No wonder I've been having trouble sleeping!! 2 earthquakes this week in BevHills....

Restlessness and anticipation have been the order of the day, or rather the night, for me this week. It's like there's a current in the air, a charge, and that charge runs through me and prevents my mind from shutting down.

Have you been feeling it? Is it just me?

It's exhausting and a little exhilarating.

Clarinet Concerto in A, 3rd Movement

Sometimes, all the parts of my life seem to be moving so fast, that I see them moving past me, and I am left with wind-burnt cheeks just trying to catch up.

The consolation is that at least I am moving, too.
