In the MOMA with these fantastic humans ... I love playing with slide projectors, photo installations and crazy crystals all with my nephew. Catherine, Jacey and Matt also got in on the action. This was one of my best days in NY. My dad agreed to a wheel chair, Jacey was thrilled to push him, Will, catherine, Caroline and I explored Van Gogh’s, Picasso’s, and many others. My parents loved it. Culture plus crowds plus our crew. And the launch at The Modern was incredible. Thank you MOMA and mama for a beautiful rainy afternoon in NYC.
These 3 + Keith Haring = a very fun NY escapade.

I love the big apple with this little cherub and the rest of our crew ... we had a beautiful afternoon at the MOMA ... big laughs and big love with the Loud crowd. My soul needed this kind of crazy creative adventure with my family. Thank you, NYC... tomorrow we are onto musicals and more mahem. #iheartny - #I❤️🍎

This pic (of me and Matt) is a day late for dia de los muertos. I love that this holiday celebrates life with the contrast of death. I’ve been so busy lately. It’s easy to let celebrating life get lost in the shuffle of doing the day-to-day. But last weekend we took time out to do a sugar skull painting class, as a family. It was great. Such a cool way to spend time together. One of my favorite quotes is: “We all have two lives ... we start living the second one as soon as we realize we only have one.” Amen to that. Which one are you in? At 45, with a few near death experiences under my belt, I am wholeheartedly in the second camp. This is my one big beautiful messy life. Complete with bills and thrills. Love and frustration. I’ve healed (myself) more than I feel hurt. It hasn’t been easy. But it’s been well worth it. I would love to hear how you’re taking tone out to celebrate life ... xo

This was my fall stroll through the botanical gardens. Lovely. Peaceful. With lots of interesting plants and flowers in their fall-ish iteration. The leaves were bright yellow. Weather was perfect. I have been going a million miles an hour for several months now. And the last two days of Supreme Court hearings had me all riled up. This was me slowing down and savoring my favorite season before the snow flies.of course. Apparently I still rushed and forgot to be mindful, as I accidentally left my two notebooks somewhere. I was bummed, drove back, searched, found nothing. My brain is full and tired and I misplaced them. Hope they inspire whomever finds them. Are you having a deliciously slow Saturday?
Last night I hosted an art show for 10 student photographers whom I worked with all summer. Their photos are phenomenal. This was not a “kid art show”. They are all fantastic observers with a keen eye for composition. They learned aperture, ISO and shutter speed. They can tell you when golden hour is, how to get a shallow depth of field and the best way to chase light, shadows and sunsets. I am so proud of their work and it was very rewarding to share something I have loved since I was their age with this dedicated bunch. They even indulge me in tales from the darkroom. Their work is for sale, many of them sold pieces last night and the show will be up until Sept 30. I’m happy to show off their work, so stop by. And the question for everyone else is, do you want to take pictures or make pictures? There’s a difference and this crew makes pictures worth checking out. Oh and it’s way better to see them in person and talk to these young people about their work. Art is an experience. I’m so thrilled to have shared this art infused summer with them. Please give these artist a shout out in the comments...a thumb’s up, a double tap, a hell yeah, whatever you’ve got. #pleaseandthankyou
