GIANT COMPROMISE


I know it’s good empathic practice to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes… but if I could just carry their earrings in this case, that’d be great. Happy Friday, Everyone! May you put your feet somewhere inspired this weekend. 😊

MERCER DOOR


A glimpse of what Soho USED to look like! Film shot of a door found a few blocks from the loft I was sharing with a bunch of males at the time… the stairs to our unit were on an angle of about 35 degrees! I made it out alive.

CRYPT AURILLA


In loving memory, on her birthday, of a force called Aurilla.

I learned that Aurilla had died of cancer upon receiving a call from her neighbor. He’d seen a postcard I’d just mailed her, saying I was heading out to CA and that I wanted to come see her…

He said she was MORE

GRILLED CHEESE, PLEASE


Time to get our rental back to the city… But first, more hay bale sacred geometry to soak in from out the window, and some pit stops that will definitely involve ketchup. Still from my “Life On The Road” box.

POLE PARTNERS


True love is a pair of weathered poles that waver not in a hurricane.

THE OTHER ARIEL


My sister Lynne met Sam on an olive grove in Greece, and they have a love story better than all rom coms… because it actually happened! They are now marrying under the Vermont skies. So to quote Lynne’s childhood relationship guru, Ariel from The Little Mermaid:

“Where MORE

DANCE AT HOME


Even if it’s just a few goofy shakes, dancing at home is the indication of something good. 🤓 Still from my Jason & Elizabeth Box, which was a wedding gift commission.

DOCTOR FRANKLIN


“Sometimes, what you’re looking for is already there.” – Aretha Franklin

When I passed this window and saw this mannequin, I was reminded of how a simple minor tweak in my posture can change my attitude entirely. Where I may have felt MORE

HULADAY


When life gives you cookies and a hula hoop, consume them, use them, and let the cheer filter in. Shot of my “Stay Awake” matchbox. #lifeisart #beherenow

ONE, TWO


One, Two, I unbuckled my shoe. Such confidence as you stepped forward. My face, your target. Three, Four, you shut that door. And I did not contest our turning to mixed berry anything. For in MORE

PINK WATER


From my CLOSER SIDEWALK collection. Screaming in fluorescent color about the most healing element in my life, it was not to be ignored.

I took this shot on the block where I shared a decade with my ex. As I revisit it now, I’m filled with ever deeper gratitude that I had available to me all the clean, clear water I needed to bathe out the sadness and retrieve all the pieces of me that MORE

SOUTHERN SOJOURN


I’ve departed from the palms that were whispering pure powdered sugar into my nervous system. From the landscapes that reminded me of why we worship the sun. Colors, kites, chair sinking, drinking love into my most innermost me.

My imagination likes to be given tasks, so here’s to MORE

STOP ANYWAY


If you won’t be able to smell them from where you’ll be standing, still stop… Appreciating regardless of circumstance, how it feeds without fail.

POWER SAUCE


Red is often associated with a warning reaction, and that is because our blood runs red, and anytime it’s outside of our body, there’s cause for alarm.

Apparently, it’s often a favorite color of those who’ve been battered by life but have come through. It may be of no coincidence that MORE

NEW MEASURES


Today is the day. I fall into you, measure free. No more sizing each other up. Only the sizing out of our hearts. Cutting into the found art of MORE

LOYAL BLOODSTREAM


“I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can’t get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That’s in friendship, that’s a deal, that’s a commitment. Don’t give me paper – I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that’s for life.” – Jerry Lewis My thoughts exactly.
