… And we’re back

I apologize for my impromptu and unannounced hiatus from the blog. It wasn’t planned but born of too much to do in too little time. So many people sent me messages or told me in person how much they like my blog and that really meant a lot to me. So I’m back. And that […]

Big Red Conversation Starter

I recently bought myself this big shiny bright red bag.

People think it’s a purse. A giant purse. The kind of purse that devours today’s giant purses in one big bite. And because of its sheer size and red-redness people can’t help but comment on it.

The Great No-TV Experiment

The more technology advances the more it seems to isolate us from each other, even as it connects us. I’d say that’s even true of social networking. Even though I now know what you’re snacking on at your desk and all about your dog’s digestive health I may not have seen you in person in a year or more, despite our living in the same town.

New Headshots!

The actor has to know how to emote, how to connect with the lens (an inanimate object) and convey who they are. It’s not an easy task, but that is essentially what a film and TV actor does for a living, so it’s an important skill.

Delicious Italian Food!

If you live in Los Angeles you probably shouldn’t go there. I don’t want to have trouble getting a table, it’s not a large restaurant. But if you’re visiting from out of town we will absolutely take you there. You’ll love it.

It’s Nice to be Nice

It has long been my belief that we should all be nice to everyone because that’s how we’d all like to be treated, and nothing is really as hard to swallow as someone who’s not nice to us, especially if we feel like we’ve done nothing to deserve rudeness. Plus, being nice is just the right thing to do. And if we should get rewarded for doing what we should do anyway, then all the better.

Violinists on the Titanic

We continue to hear that things are getting better in our economy, that the recession is finally over at the same time we’re hearing that the big banks we bailed out continue to do risky business as usual. As we hear that unemployment is improving we also see that the unemployment numbers continue to get higher. So where is the improvement coming from? The millions of dollars we are printing? I don’t think so, that’s nothing but a bucket trying to bail water out of the Titanic as it goes down.
