Word on Wednesday: A Week’s Finds

I read a lot of articles on the internet.  In fact, the last book I read was a re-read of Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird.  Not surprisingly it was an article that reminded me of how that book inspired me to write more. Usually by Wednesday, I've sent a number of emails to clients and colleagues with a list of links that remind me of them.  So, [...]

Food Porn: The World’s Newest Obsession »

Food Porn:  The World’s Newest Obsession

I live  in Foodie-Ville. Sonoma County, California is known for its access to the world's most beautiful, biodynamic, Demeter-approved, organic, humanely-produced, preciously prepared and ingested culinary perfection.  So I'm accustomed to seeing lots of social media food porn. But really, how many pictures can we take of pizza, pasta, [...]

July 4th Afterthoughts: Andy Warhol on American »

  “Everybody has their own America, and then they have pieces of a fantasy America that they think is out there but they can’t see. So the fantasy corners of America, you’ve pieced them together from scenes in movies and music and lines from books. And you live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and [...]

The Neglect of a Loved One: Back to MixingReality »

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you.  Whether it's getting to the taxes that you filed an extension for, touching up the roots on your do, or finally getting the house painted after many years of hemming and hawing about costs and colors...time marches on.

Do Not Covet Your Ideas: Give Away Everything You Know

  It is an interesting thought, and perhaps counter-intuitive for most of us to give our ideas away.  In fact, in the creative world, ideas make the world go round.  And get us paid.  But it is something I have noticed:  The more you give, the more you get in this ever changing world of trends, images and ideas. Here is to a New [...]

How Barbie Helps Us See That Healthy is the New Skinny »

How Barbie Helps Us See That Healthy is the New Skinny

  My mom was smart.  She didn't allow Barbie in the house.  At the time, I pouted and wanted one of those round patent leather cases with her traveling wardrobe, and of course, Ken waiting ever-patiently in the car that was way too small for that case to fit in. So I never really aspired to Barbie's proportions from an up close [...]

Old Book Smell »

Old Book Smell

Did you know? "Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin.  When made into paper and stored for years it breaks down and smells good.  Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla [...]
