New Book Smell

“I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.” ~ Emilia Fox A couple years ago, I ended up caving and getting an ….


Writer’s Fear

  The depth of truth in this quote struck me at my core. I am not one who gets writers block often. Even if I get what I perceive as “Writer’s block,” it is usually¬†on the “Filler” parts of a novel. I just need to pause, guzzle my coffee, and follow my mind down the endless vortex of ideas, to ….

Find Yourself in Never, Neverland

“In a place so far away We’ll be young That’s how we’ll stay Every wish is a command We will find ourselves in Never Neverland”   The first time I saw “Finding Neverland” I was a blundering ball of emotional mess. It didn’t help I was running late, which I abhor with a passion. Timeliness is Godliness. It was also ….

Bridging the Heights

“I demolish my bridges behind me – then there is no choice but forward.” Fridtjof Nansen I am not a huge fan of heights. I blame my siblings, who use to put me on top of the fridge when they were babysitting me – all in the name of love of course. I would sit there as if a basilisk ….

That centers you, and your imagination is perhaps freer to roam. ~Alex Turner¬†   When you live in a city it is hard to play tourist. If people gave me money for the amount ….

The Scent of a Woman

A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting. ~ Christian Dior In true Gemini form I have many personalities, calm, crazy, bookish, sensual, nun-like, adventurous. I am a walking book of dualities. While fashion can emulate that, from yoga chic to old Hollywood glamour, it is my perfume that resonates the true depths of my emotion. From fruity ….

The World is My Photog (For real)

A friend asked me a couple months ago on my Instagram page who my private photographer was. I laughed, and albeit a bit sarcastically replied “The world.” I might have been being facetious when I said it in the moment, but the more I thought about it, the more accurate a statement it was. While it is true I love ….

Let Us Be United

The devastation I first felt and continue to feel this morning is indescribable as I turned on the news expecting weather and kittens and instead discovered another attack had occurred, this time in Brussels. Once again people were doing everyday things. Grabbing their coffee fix before traveling. Waiting to greet loved ones. Living life. Doing what most of us do ….
