FRESHMAN FINALE

Here I am on the train, my last day as a Freshman Mom. I am headed to Boston to pack up Taylor’s room, most likely break all my Nail Spa nails in the process and hopefully reclaim a quarter of my T-shirts and favorite DVD’s. Valentino, the black t-shirt and the documentary… Read More

LAST FRESHMAN WEEKEND

Even though I sort of put her to rest I’m sort of missing Freshman Mom. The whole blogging thing started with her and now she has two weeks left, not even – I go up a week from Wednesday to move Taylor out of her dorm. I just booked Jet Blue and I really can’t… Read More

THE GIFT OF MADELINE

When the author and psychologist Dr. Madeline Levine agreed to be in Lucky Ducks it not only gave us Madeline, but it gave us a stamp of significance and relevance that allowed us to move forward and made it appealing for others to climb aboard. It also gave me a blueprint for… Read More

HOW’S THAT WORKIN FOR YA?

At it’s core LUCKY DUCKS is a film about family, connection bridging gaps, asking questions and searching for answers. But the underlying theme always comes back to behavior – patterns of behavior that for the most part end up usually shooting us in the foot.

It arrived today my push pin portrait by Eric Daigh. The whole story is in an earlier post when we met him at an opening and Glenn commissioned him to do a portrait of me. For those of you who missed the earlier blog, Eric is an incredibly talented artist from Michigan.… Read More

THE UCK IN STUCK OR HOW LUCKY DUCKS CAME TO HAPPEN

I said this week would be entirely devoted to LUCKY DUCKS as the DVD is coming out on Amazon and well, we need to PUSH IT. It’s going to take some fancy footwork on my part as I’m going to have to mesh the filmmaker with the author, with the mom and… Read More

ONE MAN’S MONK IS ANOTHER MAN’S MEMBER

I know you all think I’m stuck on this Penis Mountain thing. But quite frankly if you had spent the last three days staring at it you might have a hard time letting it go too.

WHEN A PENIS IS ONLY A MOUNTAIN

Yes, I did just say that. And I said it because as I type this I am staring at a giant mountain that is shaped exactly like a penis. We call it Penis Mountain.

LUCKY DUCKS SWIMMING ON AMAZON

Three years. Thousands of miles of travel. A hundred and eighty hours of footage. Weeks spent in the editing suite with Cob Carlson. One festival. One nomination for BEST DOC. Frantic swimming against the tide of the newly diminished indie market, but finally we are out on DVD and for all the… Read More

SPRING BREAK FRESHMAN MOM STYLE

This is a little late in the day for Freshman Mom to be posting, but shall we say it’s been a long day, or rather I guess it was a long night. It was a long something that involved oh so many glasses of Merlot.

I WISH YOU ALL COULD BE CALIFORNIA GIRLS

Five-thirty am LA time, coffee just arrived and for six dollars it’s nowhere near as good as my Nespresso at home. I’m awake earlier than usual as I’m on New York time. And while I sit here drinking my coffee watching the sunrise over this city I realize in many ways it… Read More

GLASS, BOXES, STYLE AND TRASHCANS

Most of you will be reading this while I am on my most favorite airline VIRGIN AMERICA, which I should not say because I fear the secret is out and it is the best way to fly to LA or anywhere except it doesn’t fly everywhere.

CUPCAKES, FRESHMAN AND JUST BECAUSE

OK, so yesterday’s was the first blog Larry didn’t like. What I love about Larry is he feels close enough to me he could email and tell me that he thought I sounded like an Amex travel commercial. Which is fine. I’m crazy about Larry and you can’t please everyone all the… Read More
