WHAT I LEARNED FROM MIKE NICHOLS

WHAT I LEARNED FROM MIKE NICHOLS

  I always figured I would pick up the paper one day and see “Legendary Director Mike Nichols Dies.” I’ve known Mike long enough, and he was almost thirty years my senior, so it was not a ghoulish thought, just practical. It wasn’t the paper where I saw it, but times being what they are,… Read More

I NEED TO WRITE ABOUT MAKE-UP AND LUGGAGE

I NEED TO WRITE ABOUT MAKE-UP AND LUGGAGE

So this is my little spot on the web. I have a bunch of new followers today, if you’re looking for gratitude and trust that is on the other site. Though I am grateful and trusting here,  this is my fun place to go and write about whatever is on my mind. I just devoted one… Read More

INQUIRING MINDS – “GET YOUR CHAI ON”

INQUIRING MINDS – “GET YOUR CHAI ON”

People have  been writing in and asking what time is Super Soul Sunday in their part of the country.  Can you stream it? Twitter. Facebook. All the usual. So here it all is…all the ways and places you can find it, hear it, watch it, and respond to it. Let’s all have a SUPER SOUL… Read More

OH OPRAH!

OH OPRAH!

I look at that picture and I still can’t believe it. There we are with Oprah. When I sit here fingers poised over the keys I don’t know what element of this experience to write about, the actual events, the dream that we held onto for so long of getting there, the way we felt… Read More

WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE FLIGHT

WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE FLIGHT

Today I’m headed back out on the road for Gratitude and Trust, The Never Ending Book Tour. People keep asking how do you do it? It never seems that difficult for me. The only hard part is leaving the family behind. I still end up taking more than I need. Every trip I vow next… Read More

WHIPLASH – GO BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

WHIPLASH – GO BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

  I don’t usually give movie advice or critiques.   Mostly because I don’t go the movies often enough these days, as I don’t like nine tenths of what is out there to see. But there is something playing in only forty-seven theatres right now that deserves butts in the seats. It’s called WHIPLASH. It is… Read More

ALLS WELL THAT PACKS WELL

ALLS WELL THAT PACKS WELL

I got so many responses to my suitcase saga blog. It was really impressive.  People really wanted to help me. And come on, it was just a suitcase. But I have good friends and loyal readers. My friend Ira Nadel who lives in Vancouver got in touch with a friend’s son who happens to work… Read More

SEND IT BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO?

SEND IT BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO?

  On the first leg of the book tour, somewhere between Vancouver and San Francisco, Air Canada destroyed my Rimowa suitcase. I left it with the baggage handler in grand shape and it came down the conveyer belt three hours later battered, bruised, missing a wheel and with a huge dent in it. It looked… Read More

PARISIAN ENVY

PARISIAN ENVY

There is really not much to say.  They eat dessert and stay thin. They don’t get facelifts but look great until they get toe tagged. They have better sex, better kitchens and better motto jackets. They only have three things hanging in their closet but manage to always look perfect. They have something to teach… Read More

CULOTTES – SPLIT DECISION

CULOTTES – SPLIT DECISION

If you live long enough you get to see many trends come and go.  I was alive and trending, (or so I thought) in the 80’s when culottes last reared their schizophrenic legs. The skirt/pants combo actually dates back to the eighteen hundreds. The culotte was created as a way to be appropriate and comfortable… Read More

WHO LIVES THERE?

WHO LIVES THERE?

I am tired of telling stories from the book tour tonight. If anyone is interested you can click here for an update on our time at Square Books and Thacker Mountain Radio. Last week we were in Oxford, Mississippi. Two days before the football game. The energy and enthusiasm were starting to build. But I have blogged… Read More

WEIGHING IN

WEIGHING IN

  I’m sitting on a Jet Blue flight bouncing around in the air somewhere over Kansas. I’m beginning three months of on and off book touring.  I have Paul Williams sitting next to me happily eating some coffee ice cream.  He will be unhappy that I divulged that, but he is presently handing over half… Read More

THE WEEK THAT WAS

THE WEEK THAT WAS

It’s too long a week and I just posted this over at Gratitude and Trust. It is exactly what I would post here, but I have to get some sleep. This has been one of the most invigorating, exciting weeks I can remember.  Read about it here. And lots of travel blogging when I hit… Read More
