Writer’s Block

The dream is ending. The drama subsides. What do I do at the end of the show? The silence is deafening. I’m afraid to step outside of the theatre; it’s the only life I know. It’s dark, but it’s comfortable. There – I’ve opened the door now… the sun is blinding me, and I can’t see a thing. Which direction do I walk? I’m … Read More Writer’s Block

Movie, Dirt, Feng Shui & Bali Connection?

The other day I was swooning over the movie I saw called Yes. One of the interesting themes in it is dirt. That’s right – dirt, and our attempts to get rid of it.

Laura’s Birthday

Crete, Greece

It would be impossible for me to accurately document my experience in this beautiful place – impossible to capture the charm of the streets and villages, the romance of the land, the sensuality of the strong sun, and the magnificent strength of the sea. The enormity of Crete’s deep history alone is more than the mind can grasp. Top all of this with a … Read More Crete, Greece
