Suuuuuuuucks to live in Griefland. xoxoxo
Thank you Courtney and Brian for sharing your loss and I'm so sorry you have such loss to share. But what beautiful souls we have in our lives. I treasure you all.
Thank you Janet, I'm sorry for your loss. I appreciate your kind words and am glad you had a good friend to help you through. Those friends are priceless. Much love!

Grief is a constant companion. Once Grief comes into your life, it is always with you. Not always in the forefront, but always there. There are daily (hourly) reminders of what you've lost. Sometimes the reminders are sweet and funny... Continue reading

Lesson #1 - Moonlight Rollerway (Since 1950!) June 25, 2016. Holy crap what am I doing here? I'm so nervous. There is a 17 year old girl out in the rink doing amazing things on 8 wheels and I wore... Continue reading

Harper is in her third and last year of preschool. The new kids look like BABIES but I know that's what Harper looked like when she started. But it's not just the height/weight/vocabulary. It's the new ways of thinking, new... Continue reading

I'm a huge Hamilton fan. I've not seen it on Broadway, but I'm DEEP into the soundtrack and have read the book written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter. I just can't get enough. I have a whole blog post... Continue reading

Living in LA requires a car. Two problems with that: 1) Not everyone who lives here can afford a car and they rely on mass transit, which, in modern times, had been almost entirely made up of buses until 1990.... Continue reading

Dynamo belonged to Kurt's mom, Dot. He was born in Texas in 2001 and we met him when he was a teenage kitty, all legs and a ball of energy, hence his name. He grew into a large handsome tomcat... Continue reading

The four year old conversations are pretty awesome. For example: Us: Harper, do you want to learn how to play an instrument? H: I want a fire guitar that sings rock and roll. That's a done deal in my mind.... Continue reading

The other day I wore these half boots that Kurt bought for me. My colleague and I were walking down some stairs and I was off balance and mentioned I was not used to wearing these boots. He looked at... Continue reading

At my job I have the pleasure of working with a talented and relaxed VFX Supervisor. (Two things you MUST have in a VFX partner to retain your sanity.) He and I have had a few big picture what do... Continue reading

As someone who named their daughter Harper, I will never be able to write a book with the word "Mockingbird" in the title. I'm thinking of titles like: To Kill A Mockingbird at 3am With An Axe Without Waking Your... Continue reading

Dear Dor, Remember back in the (ahem) 70's when we were both swimming laps, day in, day out? You waking up before dawn to make the haul up the hill to Kamuela to swim lap after lap at HPA, me... Continue reading

As mentioned in my two previous posts, I spent a chunk of time in Mexico City working on a movie. There is a volcano just outside Mexico City called Popocatepetl and we would see and work hard to remember how... Continue reading

The first half of 2006 had been a fun year, jetting to Paris and up and down North America. And by the way, if you ever get the chance to hang in the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in Montreal,... Continue reading

The other day I was pouring coffee into this mug and thinking about when and where I got it and realized it was ten years ago. 20th Century Fox had hired me to work on The Omen (6/6/6) and the... Continue reading

Zoolander was the first movie we went to after 9/11 happened. It seemed the no-brainer choice -- total escapism. I was having a good time, laughing an enjoying the ridiculousness of it all. Then. Then came the moment where the... Continue reading

Harper used to call "Mama!" when she woke up and I would come to her room and say good morning and give hugs. Now she's a big girl and she gets up on her own. I'm usually already up, writing,... Continue reading

Okay, not really wolves. But all dogs are descended from wolves, so it's almost the same. Grace and her dog Monkey came over for lunch and we took Monkey to the nearby dog park. Harper had more fun there than... Continue reading
