My friend Sam Jayne passed away....Don't Worry by Love As Laughter  

Hi friends, 

This past year we have endured an insurmountable amount of loss.  Almost everyone we know has either lost a loved one or someone close to us has.  And on top of the loss of our loved ones comes the loneliness felt from this pandemic isolation.  Zoom and Facetime calls are in no way a real substitute for being able to mourn and/or celebrate the lives of our loved ones with each other. We all are doing our best at making every moment count, striving to stay strong for our loved ones & to…

I'll Be Your Therapy - November 13, 2020 release date! 

The last time I made a blog entry, just after I had just returned from Nashville the world turned upside down.  We have all been dealing with the devastation caused to our due to the coronavirus pandemic.  We have all been doing our best coping with our new way of life.  It is unlike anything we have every experienced before. I personally have found myself feeling unfocused, anxious and unable to create music or art which I also have decided is okay.  I appreciate the small things because the big picture is…

Help the Nashville Tornado Relief Effort - March 2020 

Last week a deadly tornado struck my hometown of Nashville, TN.  Lots of people lost their lives and many families lost their homes.  My husband Jasper and I in fact had just flown back from Nashville to NYC the night of the tornado.  I feel lucky that my family and immediate circle of friends are okay.  But not everyone is okay.  My mom attempted to drive downtown this past week and she could not get through the roadblocks set up due to all the debris.  My mom teared up when telling me how she was so…

We Don't Even Know is talking to phenomenal people... 

If you haven’t come to a We Don't Even Know variety show podcast live taping, you truly have missed out. We celebrate inspiring humans and conversation in an intimate space, the Red Room Speakeasy upstairs of the KGB Bar in the East Village. My co-host Christian Felix & I felt like our brand of conversation was virtually invisible outside of when we were on the phone together - the intersection of art, comedy, music, race, gender, existence, friendship, sexual orientation, politics and the minutiae. Our…

It's the beginning of 2019 and as I reflect on what a crazy year 2018 was I look to places that I find comfort.  One of those places for me is the creative world. I have managed to surround myself with so many generous, talented, creative, funny people and I never take that for granted.  They make me feel better about myself and the world when I am with them.  Here is a window into that world - it's the Vimeo channel for a web series I started a few years back.  I look at this and think "Girl You are…
