Looking for Tyson

Nezi Arbib, famed hairdresser and muse of mine often mentions Tyson. “I wake up and I’m already looking for Tyson,” he tells me. Reason being: If there’s no Tyson, there’s no action, and definitely no money. When things are painful and chaotic, that’s when

Full power, no toilet, no shower

Full power, no toilet, no shower

In India a little boy who pushed me and my luggage through town on a large, rickety cart, answered this to my question about how he could push heavy objects all day: “Full power, no toilet no shower.” Apparently that’s Hindi for when you have no time for the pain (or the pee),

Even Though I’m Mawwied

Even Though I’m Mawwied

Admit it. You missed me. I missed you too!! Last week I literally had no more hard drive, no space for a single inspired or creative thought. Now I’m back with you though, bwimming with thoughts and inspirations. Well not really but hell I can’t miss another week, and neither can

The Courage To Be Disliked

The Courage To Be Disliked

Sometimes when I’m being very me I feel a hot river of shame roll through me. Being me sometimes scares me. If I’m not nurturing enough I question my mothering. If I’m too callous, I question my lack of empathy. It’s like there’s a constant goal post set next to me

Slutty Beach Culture

Slutty Beach Culture

Beach culture is promiscuous. But I mean that as a compliment. In my teen years it was obvious, coastal girls lost their virginity the soonest. Boozy house parties, bonfires, unlimited access to marijuana—sneaking off to the beach for some no good was always an option. The most fun I ever had

What Austin Does Right

What Austin Does Right

In San Diego we forget about culture. We have the sunshine and that seems to be enough. Museums. meh, stale, passé. But we have the sun. Music scene, it’s a hidden world, but we have the rays of el sol. Public art? Huh? We’re getting tan, pass the sunscreen. 3 things Austin is doing

Tales From The Yoga Mat

Tales From The Yoga Mat

I used to laugh at my mom when she told me how she’d go to exercise classes with a walkman on. “I watch the teacher but I don’t need to listen to her,” she’d explain. Typical mama. Can’t follow a rule or a recipe to save her life. Turns out apples fall

Moments Don’t Pass Me Up

Moments Don’t Pass Me Up

When Kid Cudi said, “Moments don’t pass me up, no, no ’cause I seize them in stride”, did he know that in 23 B.C.E. Horace broke it down more simply by saying, “carpe diem” or “seize the day”? I love to observe how one thing leads to another. I

Freaky Friday

Freaky Friday

There’s an important right of passage that happens to moms raising teenage girls: it’s called: we become them. Call it wanting to reclaim your youth, call it what you will (um, pathetic?) but apparently it’s what a mom needs to go through in order to not get completely out of
