I know about knee injuries, root canals, lazy eyes and thinning hair, blacking out, passing out, anesthesia, hyperventilation, food and water poisoning, and my ceiling falling to the floor at 4 in the morning.

But I’m still standing…. yeah, yeah, yeah. 😂

In both seriousness and seeming irony, though, I’m standing stronger and lighter in the face of life’s customary mini traumas thanks to… MORE

I know spinning out of control and totaling a vehicle. How the treasures of life shine all the brighter, thanks to our shattered vessels. And to those MORE

I know about being reborn in the private chambers of a Mexican pyramid. 🌟 Some experiences are like pressing a reset button. Rather than the peeling back of one layer from that self-realization onion at a time, it’s like the right knife finally comes along to just take you straight to your core.

The Mayans… they were MORE

I used to dance in the haunted crypt of a cathedral every Saturday morning. 👻💃🏼

Nothing like that feeling that something is watching you, while dancing blindfolded in a damp stone space, to empower that light of yours to stay lit in spite of whatever fear!

My gratitude to the two… MORE

I know about magic, and about a profound love for children not my own. Click for AUDIO! MORE

I know about drinks with New Yorker art critics, department heads of the Metropolitan, famous comedians, Grammy winners, events among the cypress of the magnificent villas of Tuscany.

And guess what? It doesn’t… MORE

I know about sitting in a lawn chair for hours in a state of bliss… It was at the back of a hotel near the Teotihuacan Pyramids outside of Mexico City. The longest sustained state of presence I’ve experienced.

I revisit that lawn chair within me sometimes, to… MORE

I know about almost losing my life atop an active volcano in a lightning storm. CLICK for the tale! MORE

I know about getting my work transformed into New York City Billboards. Ever in love with the out of scale, I’m just as inspired by a building sized metal sandwich as I am by a dollhouse miniature sized bowl of corn flakes. And yes, I am often inspired by food!

Merging scales – making something that is already a detail, larger than life – is an enticing motivator for me.

Back when a young artist new to the city, and developing my CLOSER collection, I decided that my photography would one day… MORE

I know about being greeted by a praying mantis on a deserted winter beach in New England.

I was heartbroken in my early twenties and visiting my sister at the inn she managed on Martha’s Vineyard. I took myself to a treasured beach to be alone with my thoughts in that perfect healing capsule that is crashing waves and harsh winds in combo… ever a witch am I, always craving elemental intensity to expedite emotional processing.

As my goose down vest was reaching that point of apology that all our insulating garments do, as the cold they’re fighting off for us starts winning, I turned to MORE

I know what it means to feel a fool.

“If a room has been in darkness for a hundred years and someone enters this room and opens the window, instantly light fills the room. It doesn’t even take a second for the darkness to leave. Similarly with us: The instant… MORE

I know about the treacherous path of entrepreneurialism and about staying committed to my vision in spite of the greatest naysayer of all, which has been my own mind.

I often say, if you want a 24/7 crash course in personal development, just start your own business!

I guess I’ve been in that school a long time… CLICK for MORE! MORE

I know world-renowned metaphysicians and Cherokee shamans, psychics, and acupuncturists from 300-year lineages.

I wouldn’t be as “ok” as I am today without MORE

Dec 14, 2018


I know about losing my most kindred of grandmothers.

Both the Holidays, and winter, can accentuate feelings arising from our losses.

Yet without loss, there would be no now vs. before, no now vs. later… there would be no differentiation to sustain MORE

I know the harsh sting of betrayal… from my first boyfriend at 14 spinning the bottle with another, to the man I considered the love of my life blindsiding me with the secrets of his nature.

But this is not going to be about those moments when I was blindsided… It’s going to be about the very fact I was blindsided, at all.

This is about our culture.

Why is it that MORE

I know about getting robbed by a heroin addict in the woods of Italy.

When I reflect on what it was like to travel alone in Europe, while still a teenager, what I see is a giant spiritual dryer in which I was tumbling around. The boundaries I’d yet learned about were fences around fields, not MORE

I know about losing my cat to kidney failure.

I spent the final 9 of his 19 years with him. A rescue cat named Rafer Johnson, he came off studious in his tuxedo coat and facial poise, was skittish around strangers, would only scratch me by accident, and his draping yoga couch poses had to have come straight out of the cuteness factor manual that I’m certain he’d stashed somewhere in our apartment, and studied while we were out.

I’m sure most of you reading this have MORE

I know about almost losing my best friend to spinal injuries from a car accident… when I was meant to have driven her home, instead.

We were teenagers at some cabin party down a… MORE
