don’t stop believing…in saturday!

it’s saturday evening.  the website is on it’s way to being launched.  i am about to put on fake eyelashes.  i will not be wearing this dress tonight but will try to replicate the hair in some way.

while on the topic of hair…

someone called me (ecstatic) to tell me that they met the lead singer of journey today.  i thought i would share it.

what i’ve found in the last few weeks is that there is great importance in:

1.  having fun and making fun of yourself simultaneously.

2.  looking past what-ifs and delving into what’s imperative to thrive.  like how to to the scissors.

the surface scratched, i keep hearing stories about love, suffering and talent not in that order and sometimes in the same time.  as the accounts emerge it’s clear that there are a lot of people in our generation who are doing things that make life better and brighter.  all cheese aside, it’s true.  i write about sharlie and angelo and then get responses from strangers (to me or them or both) who want to know more.  i weave those stories into the script of the show (which is coming from emails and responses to the blog and facebook) and it works.  i get more stories.  the gift keeps on giving.

am i closer to understanding my generation?  i don’t know.  questions have been raised, thoughts confirmed but it seems that what is more intriguing is that with each day i meet more people and have more fun.  the more i trust, the more the “right” people and their stories emerge.

a chef from india, a ducati enthusiast, a pastor, a self-starter who founded a new music site, a rockin mom, a teacher, a farmer:  just the beginning of the cool web of contributors.  if you haven’t done so already, please send me a link to your website and i’ll be sure to put it up on ours in the next few days.  and if you have any other stories, topics, thoughts or causes that should make their way to the show or the website, please email me at or respond to this blog.

you guys make me happy.  and so does saturday night dress up parties for charity.  and dancing.  and wearing sequined headbands.

happy saturday!  love the one your with.


p.s.  lewis floyd henry is rad.  thank you simon for helping me know him through your wonderful photography!
