... near the air bases, staring into space, absorbed in my own rich imagination. It occurred to me that this free-style imagining still lives in me – in a newfound love and desire to write stories and songs and music. The Rose of No-Man’s Land is a realization of these dreams.
GOING ALL NATURAL…I’ve recently moved to a place that has a lovely secluded garden, and I’ve decided to revive the age-old nudist colony idea. People need a place to let it all hang out, a place to commune with the sea air with no barriers. Clothing can be so oppressive…Read more: http://bit.ly/1h1gznS

I spent hours and hours as a kid playing my flute. We lived in Alaska and I remember entering the state fair talent competition – I played Impossible Dream – hehe – amongst the gigantic vegetables that people brought from far and wide for the biggest “pumpkin” competition.

I am crazy about good fiction and writing, have been an avid reader since a kid. Here are my favorite books so far this Winter, topped by: The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje - LOVED this one, it inspired a song, each page is pure poetry. So did this one: Snow Hunters by Paul Yoon (tree metaphors and imagery still haunting me). Then in no particular order: Someone by Alice McDermott (love her characters). A Place in Time by Wendell Berry (reminds me of my own roots) In One Person by John Irving (love the fluid view of gender identity) The Dog Stars by Peter Heller (powerful end-of-world story Ransom by David Malouf (poetic imagination of the meeting of Priam and Achilles) The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri (from India to Rhode Island) TransAtlantic by Colum McCann (characters woven through time) If On A Winters Night by Italo Calvino (whimsy) The Childhood of Jesus by J.M. Coetzee (not what it sounds like) I've slogged my way through a few others…it's hard for me not to finish a book even if I don't care for it. But mostly I have been on a run of excellent writing and good stories. Let me know if you have some recommendations! P.S. This photo is taken at my favorite café, The Bittersweet Café in Berkeley/Oakland. Amazing cups of chocolate – my favorite is dark chocolate with peanut butter. Liquid Reeses, mmmm.
