Being Original

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It's not where you take things from - its where you take them to."
- Jim Jarmusch

Dedicated: Abi & Ashlii

I am OBSESSED with these two girls.


An amazing amount of ENERGY that fuels those lucky enough to be with you

STRENGTH - so much incredible strength

GUARANTEED belly aching laughter


A genuine LUST for life

A TEASE in every positive sense of the word


Positive ENCOURAGEMENT for me a at any given moment

You KNOW what I NEED even when I don't and you take care to make sure it happens

FEISTY to no end but always in my favor and for that I am grateful


GUARANTEED belly aching laughter (can I use that twice? I kinda have too look at that laugh it's contagious even when you can't hear it!)

THERE for me in a heartbeat regardless of the circumstances

Couldn't ask for a better TRAVEL partner

Genuinely captivated LISTENER

Open to heartfelt DISCUSSION with your girls knowing full well that 3 year olds have important things to say

ORGANIZATION skills beyond compare (can we say best birthday ever??)

Always a SUPPORT to me and my ideas regardless of their practical application

An old fashioned SOUL full of romance and whimsy, sprinkled with fiery spunk


Remarkable WRITER who should take every opportunity to share this talent with the world who would be better for it

You are amazing examples to me as mothers, friends and beautiful women and I am a better person for having you in my life.
