A Great Big Diva!: Never too late to make that dream happen!

17th October 2017 | 0 Comments

I am finally fulfilling a dream I’ve had for decades: writing & performing my own one woman show. It will be funny (of course) and it’s a musical but I will also share a couple moments of heartache as well. I am collaborating with a monstrously talented writer in L.A. named Andrew Barrett and it’s [...]


Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA

9th October 2017 | 0 Comments

Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA: It’s so scary to produce an original piece of work. People have asked me: “Why are you doing this? (My one woman show)” I have only one answer: Because I have to. I am compelled to do this work. I have tried to ignore it for years – [...]


Choose Love. Choose Hope.

2nd October 2017 | 0 Comments

We must not let the horrors of humanity ruin us. There is so much negativity buzzing around us, so much hate and lack of empathy – yet there is more than a small bit of good still out there. We create it every time we show empathy for others. There is no sense in what [...]


Give In to Hope and Love.

23rd May 2017 | 0 Comments

I am so inspired and moved by people who get past the horrible headlines and just continue their work of helping others. It’s an honorable calling. The mess that we witness every day makes some of us piss and moan but it also motivates us all to care. It is easy to criticize and berate [...]


Photo Session (the first in ten years)

7th February 2017 | 0 Comments

Had a photo shoot today with the AMAZING John Gress. I was so nervous. What to bring? What to wear? Will I have enough energy to come across on film? Will I look like crap? But John is such a dear and so patient and enthusiastic- all was well. And I had a blast. Thanks [...]


Souls.

4th February 2017 | 2 Comments

I have decided to live in kindness and love today. I have witnessed words of anger, fear, intolerance and ignorance. I have been forced to reevaluate friendships based on my friends adherence to views that are diametrically opposed to my own. I try to see it from their side but I can’t help feeling shock [...]


This New Administration is Wearing Me Out! (and it’s only been a week!)

27th January 2017 | 2 Comments

The never-ending crazy coming from Washington is driving me nuts! The collective emotions brought on by the actions of this administration is stressful: Fear, disgust, horror, anger, outrage, shock – it goes on and on. I hope that we all remain diligent and never succumb to acceptance and resignation. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s gonna be [...]


Building Strength. Ode to my fitness trainer.

28th October 2016 | 2 Comments

I’ve been thinking about this whole process: working out, gaining strength. The more I do, the more I can do. It’s an amazing thing to experience. As you know this isn’t my first fitness experience but working with trainer Jeremy is at a whole different level. I would NEVER push myself to the extremes that [...]


I opened two gifts when I woke up this morning.

27th October 2016 | 0 Comments

I saw a meme the other day that read: “I opened two gifts when I woke up this morning – My Eyes!” That’s how I am facing this day. Just happy to see another morning. Just grateful for another chance to be the best that I can be. And I am happy to ignore any [...]


Don’t be So hard…On Yourself.

26th October 2016 | 0 Comments

“Don’t be so hard on yourself!” Recently, I gave someone that advice. Then I realized: I’m the hardest on my own damn self! Have I forgiven myself for past mistakes? Hell no! I’m still shuddering over poor choices I made 30 years ago! I think when you stop and think about your patterns of behavior [...]
