I’m For Laughter

I’m For Laughter

“I’m for laughter, happily ever after, don’t matter who, don’t matter what: when and where do not matter, I’m for laughter.  I’m for laughter loud enough to make people turn their heads and think “I should be over there,” while others think, “what assholes!” I’m for laughter at the wrong time: at funerals, board meetings, during sex, flat-tires, hurricanes and shipwrecks.

I’m for laughter stopping us from falling off the last step into solemn oblivion.  I’m for laughter as the recognition of the joke that life can sometimes be. I’m for laughter from the heart, laughter that lifts one’s spirit so high everything looks funny and you can’t get “serious” about life anymore because you get the joke. View full post…

Craigslist Rocket Ships & Soul

Craigslist Rocket Ships & Soul

“People said I was some kind of crazy thinking I could hang on to a dream I’d had since I was a kid. But I knew I couldn’t expect somebody who has never rode a comet across the sky to understand something as astral as a dream. They can’t see that far, that’s all, they just don’t have the vision.  But it’s not glasses they need, it’s soul.

The kind of soul that keeps your heart-beating when everything you ever loved is lost. Soul that makes you see the devastating beauty in tragedy and the shallow tragedy in beauty. Soul that goes so deep you can feel water flowing through it way down in the center of the earth.  And soul, so incredibly alive, it can yank you right out of the desert of dead dreams and pump the breath back into lifeless hope.

Stuff I Learned From Clouds

Stuff I Learned From Clouds

The sky was magnificent, snow-white cream puff clouds sat across the heavens. I was taking pictures trying to capture the beauty of the sun glowing through a gap in the stacks when a thought popped into my head. This thought hit me like an old memory jumping forward in time and suddenly I had the idea that the hole I could see in the clouds was an “Entrance” to some mystical land. It just felt like a gateway to a place where alchemy and abracadabra might still exist. View full post…

NYC, Carnegie Deli & Me

NYC, Carnegie Deli & Me

Shortly after I graduated from college I moved to New York City.  I knew I was going to move to New York when I was fifteen years old, I was an actor and New York was where I had to be.  My first job was at the Carnegie Deli: I was hired as a cashier by its famous owner Leo Steiner, who was featured in Woody Allen’s film, “Broadway Danny Rose.”

My first day on the job was a Saturday.  I stood at the register from 8:30am to 5:00pm and at the end of my shift Leo counted the cash in my drawer to make sure the receipts matched the money.  After he finished counting he told me it was perfect. I had rung up over $22,000 in the eight hours and I was not a dime short. View full post…

Technicolor Stardust Bubbles

This is my first blog post and I am feeling all kinds of pressure to deliver the most amazing first blog post ever.  Unfortunately, I do not know how to accomplish this goal: so I am just going to tell it to you straight and be myself.

I am currently working on my first book entitled “The Almost True Tales, Thoughts & Observations of a Life Long Black Sheep Rebel Girl.”  I will be sharing excerpts from my book on this blog.  In addition, I will also be discussing my experience as a black sheep rebel girl on such subjects as love, art, beauty, failure, etc.  My mission is to entertain, uplift and inspire others and to make new friends.
