My Swimsuit Modeling Career

My Swimsuit Modeling Career


Pain is Beauty. Beauty is Pain. That’s how the saying goes.

I strapped on the new pair of black alligator pumps and headed to the office today. It’s my newest version of  Beauty is pain AKA how to be an idiot. Besides the fact that for me these are as verboten as them come. I swear, if one of my surgeons ever lands on my site I’m in big trouble.

These days post-surgery I am even weaker. Let’s…

Albert Camus wrote “in the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.’ I believe he was speaking of an emotional space, an essence. I am fighting my way through winter. This particular frost isn’t my illness per say but the changes in my life and of those around me because of it. In the time I needed support the most it simply was not there. Nor could I be there…

I’ve said it time and again. I love creativity, a bonafide junkie. And to actually meet an artist I’ve admired and been following for a while is beyond measure.

Today, DT ² accompanied me to meet Brooke Hagel at a joint event put on by Clinique and Vogue. When Brooke sent out her tweet for the added date I jumped all over it.

Like I said before, I did not care what product they were promoting or…

The Weekend ~

I was pondering my post on chocolate and the movie Like Water For Chocolatepopped into my head. How she cooked her emotions right into the food she made. Then anyone who ate it felt what she felt. During college I went to see the movie with a new lover. We started the movie nestled up against one another. But the end we were leaning on the opposite arm rests away from one another. We broke up…

I was recently talking to DT² who insisted that the next time I kiss a man she requires photographic proof. I understand. It would be like spotting an albino rhino in Antarctica. Or is that a spotted penguin in the Safari?

“So”, I inquired,” you want me to what, take a selfie?”

“No”, she corrected, “that would be an USsie, but yes that will do.”

I am not sure I can navigate a lip locking let…

For Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a picture each week which we, the participants, are tasked to write a 100 word story about.

My story is per usual a drama much to the bane of DT². But she is still in Israel and can’t stop me.

If humor is your thing then head over to Randy’s blog. Over there it’s humor- “humor the week before, and the week before that, and the week before…” On…

I’m Bitter About My New Sweetie!

I’m Bitter About My New Sweetie!


My boyfriend let me down. I don’t mean like showing up 5 minutes late or leaving the toilet seat up or forgetting my birthday. (Honestly I wouldn’t care about the last one. But Valentine’s Day– look out, it’s on). No, he ditched me.

If you read my blog you may have heard about my recent love affair with Patric. I know, oh so exotic dropping the K off the end. I’ve tried to keep him on the down…

For My Aunt Sarah

It was my intention to post this in April in honor of sexual Assault Awareness month. My Aunt who passed away in February, dedicated her life to this cause. She fought to protect those who could not protect themselves.

In the mid 70’s she began volunteering as a counselor and advocate for Seattle Rape Relief, one of the first crisis centers in the nation. Then in 1995, she founded Rape Trauma…

Into The Unknown



In the course of healing I’ve sought out support, places that could help me deal with the emotional, mental and physical ramifications of the Big C, reflections in the world of Cancer. The first living with cancer support group I attended consisted of only a few people, all of us cancer patients/survivors. I spend my time mostly in tears, a much needed release.

I have discovered that as much as…
