Tuesday morning I got an urgent call from my youngest cousin. "I haven't spoken to my Daddy since Saturday," she said. "It's not like him... we speak every couple of days. Can you go check on him and let me know if he's okay?" Then I called him. The phone... Continue reading

I'll never forget where I was on September 11, 2001. The phone rang at the crack of dawn. It was my ex-husband who at the time was out of the country (and still my husband). There was no hello, no how are you, none of the platitudes we'd summarily exchange.... Continue reading

(And I'm paraphrasing here) "Go for it, say what needs to be said." "What are you worried about," he continued," it's your blog." Of course, at... Continue reading

Sick of the neighborhood scenery, I decided to get out of the hood and into the wilderness - kind of. What a great place to have in the neighborhood! The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook has hiking trails, insane stairs, a visitors center and views of the entire LA Basin. It's... Continue reading

After witnessing this recent burst of creative energy, a good friend asked why I stopped writing in the first place. It wasn't the first time someone asked me that. It was, however, the first time in a long time I actually gave the question some serious thought. Why DID I... Continue reading

It's damn hot outside. Don't know about you, but hot weather calls for slushies, and I could use a cool, refreshing drink. Not the kid version, but something a little more sophisticated - for the more refined adult palate. I "discovered" this idea recently when I forgot about a bottle... Continue reading

With the definition of reinvention out of the way, I suppose a little background is in order. So, just who the heck am I anyway? Good question. I am a pretty rockin' stepmom, kinda bitter ex-wife, a creative and crafy chick, wannabe rockstar (seriously, you should see me on the... Continue reading
