  • I have the perfect dry and depressing 9 hour BBC documentary for you to watch!
    February 20, 2021
    I remember years ago I was telling my writing partner about buying tickets to go see a performance of something called “Decasia” at the Disney Concert Hall downtown for me and the hubby to go see for Valentines Day. We love an experience more than an object. Anyhow, point of story, Writing Partne...

  • Texas suffers real global climate consequences, blames non-existent regulations
    February 17, 2021
    I just... For the last few years California has burst into flames like clockwork every summer. Yes, there are policies that could help somewhat but the fact is, we’re having warmer, drier summers, invasive species are killing our trees and our creaky electrical infrastructure has failed under the...

  • A+ for creative valentine gifting
    February 14, 2021
    My husband booked a “falcon experience” as a gift for Valentine’s Day. I had no idea what we were getting into. He just said, “it’s outdoors.” We showed up at the park in Highland Park at 10:00 and a friend of his, a painter met us there with her friend, another artist and recent RI…

  • getting a house on Wednesday
    February 13, 2021
    The cranes are arriving to drop our new guest house on top of the garage/foundation on Wednesday. They say that the house will be watertight in one day. I think the house arrives in flat pieces that will be craned into place and then bolted together. The weeks after that will be all about cabinet...

  • weird meeting, high electric bill and bunkers
    February 9, 2021
    I had a super weird meeting yesterday. I’m being rewritten. It’s not a first and it’s pretty normal to be rewritten. But this rewrite was about something I’d kind of not expected. Notes were harsh, “needs to be funnier and more contemporary.” This translates to: you’re old and not funny. I know I...

  • ah squeenta, the garage is done
    February 6, 2021
    The word squeenta has been an inside joke amongst my friends for at least 20 years now. It has something to do with squirrels and something to do with the Spanish pronunciation of China (chee-na) and then maybe the extra “T” was thrown in for fun? Who knows how we arrived there. It is the…

    my garage, my bookcase, my boxes for charity
    February 1, 2021
    I have spent 2 hours a day for weeks now cleaning the garage. Dean is someone who holds tightly to the past. I threw away receipts from the 90's. Birthday cards from ten years ago. Scraps of paper. Nib nabs. We bought two bookcases from IKEA -- the blue Billy case with glass doors and…

    soak in the rain
    January 29, 2021
    Last night I got to go in the jacuzzi for about an hour after my last meeting before it started raining. It was kind of amazing to sit there, looking at the full moon in hot water on a cold night. We have a retractable canvas roof over the deck but it only does so…

    having an episode
    January 28, 2021
    I was reading today about how after a long period of trauma the quiet is when the real grief sets in. This was in relationship to trans folks who had spent the last four years on edge because they never knew when their rights were going to be tweeted away. Similarly immigrant populations here on&...
