Summer is really not my season.  Or I suppose I should say, Texas summer is not my season.  Or climate.  If we lived in Nova Scotia, I might well love summer best of all. But down here in Houston, it’s hot.  Summer is mostly about coping for me.  Going out in the steamy, hot, mosquito-ridden […]

video: what are you grateful for?

I am lucky in a thousand ways this summer.  And one of them is that I get to help host a Secret Mission for the Dream Lab at Mondo Beyondo. Here’s what it is:  My friends at Mondo Beyondo want to inspire folks to create guerilla goodness in the world–acts of kindness or love that help […]

art for mom 2.0

It’s been a long month of sick kids (and parents) at my house.  And even though I knew there would be many, many, many of my favorite people at the Mom 2.0 Summit last weekend, I had to scramble pretty hard to get there. But I made it.  And it was so good in so […]

My mom found the lamps in a storage room there a few years back, and she gave them a home in her […]

Dear Kelly Rae Roberts, Thank you for setting me on fire. I’ve made another collage, and now I’m walking around today with an excited kind of tickle in my body.  It’s that same feeling I get when I’m in the groove with a story–a feeling of creation, of expression, of doing something that only I […]

body poems: $1

I’d love to have a body poems booth.  Maybe just sit out on the front lawn on nice days with a sign like a lemonade stand that says, Body Poems: $1.  And anybody who needed to tell herself something could just stop by and get painted.  The first time I ever painted words on someone‘s […]
