Wild

I recently read this very emotionally riveting book, “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, about a woman’s journey hiking the Pacific Coast Trail … ultimately about the choices we make, the adventures of life, the will of the human spirit.  Highly recommended!

Birds of a Feather

While home in New Zealand, I visited with Niels Meyer-Westfeld —- an artist and husband of a dear friend Deborah. Niels is working on a book about New Zealand birds and his workplace is a charming studio in Wellington with an inspiring view of the ocean. I love the detail in his pictures and can’t wait to see them compiled in the final book…

A Place on the Beach

On the way back from New Zealand we stopped off in LA and stayed at Shutters, on the beach in Santa Monica (the last time I was in LA we were on the ferris wheel on the Piers, I spotted Shutters and said “next time we’re staying there!”)  Feels like home to be near the beach, beautiful view and I love the some of the unique details.

Happy 2014

I cherish my holiday in New Zealand at the end of the year as a reaffirming reminder that home, in a world of change, is a constant.  In New Zealand, I am inspired by the magic of the natural world - the colors, smells, formations; as well as the human ability to see and create our own magic, as New Zealanders especially do.    Some thoughts which have come to mind in this particular trip:   create, play, work, discover, try;  and to always take time to celebrate friends and family and to smell the roses.  Happy New Year!
