This photo sums up some of my favorite, selfish things. When I'm not being a mom, wife, sister, daughter, aunt or friend I love travel, art and coffee!  This shot was taken on an early morning visit to the Tate Modern in London.  When I'm traveling I get outside of myself.  My mind...

My favorite character in literature is Anna Karenina. I forget which book she was in but she herself was unforgettable. She was cool and she had it all. She liked to dance. She liked to play. She liked to do things just her way. And her way was the best, dudes, just unbelievable! I hope all you Red...

  Cocktail   It's my favorite. I named it "The Sod Glacier."     2 oz of Old Bushmills red label Irish Whiskey, poured over hard fresh rocks in a short glass that fits my hand perfectly.   Why do I like it so? This beverage is caringly crafted by sod-busting...

My favorite contemporary short story is "The Tumblers" from Nathan Englander's amazing collection FOR THE RELIEF OF UNBEARABLE URGES.  To avoid ending up at the death camps, a  group of Orthodox Jews sneaks on a train, pretending to be circus acrobats. During the train ride, these men and...

My favorite poem. This is a tough one. I have sentimental favorites, specific author favorites, and other subcategories. "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" is my top choice. As a teenager, I read this one over and over again. Each time I read it I discovered new meaning. Lovely music...

I made the 2 mile hike down to LOCAL HEROES in Norfolk VA (http://www.localheroescomics.com) to see if the owner would hang my flyer for the zuda announcement in the store. Not only did he let me put it up, he put it center stage on the bulletin board, and directed me to a UPS store up the block...

Here are some poems by the Zen master Ryokan, one of my favorites: How can we ever lose interest in life?/Spring has come again/ And cherry trees bloom in the mountains. **** I came to this village to see the peach blossoms/ but spent the day instead/ Looking at the flowers along the river bank...
