THESE 3 THINGS 025

025 1."Be who you are and may you be blessed in all that you are." My Mother-in-law who I very much adore, gifted my daughter a wooden jewelry box with this quote from the Torah carved in the top. I had never heard it before and was so taken with the quote I quickly took the box and put it on my desk. I have no intention of giving it back. I look at it everyday and right before I hit send on a really big email, launch a new collection, speak at a conference or do anything that makes...

024 1. I have spent so many years working with people at their most vulnerable because I have been trying to learn how to survive being vulnerable myself. This hit me like a ton of bricks today.

During my work and training I was so very deeply steeped in the profession. I was planning on becoming a classic psychoanalyst, ya know Freud, on the couch, and all that jazz. Instead, life happened and my journey took a...

THESE 3 THINGS 022

022   1. Lying down and not being asleep is totally underrated. I had forgotten how relaxing it is to just lay still without having to worry about sleeping.  2. A rough approach, doesn't mean you can't nail the landing. Each year this time of the summer creeps up on me. No matter how I plan, or prepare, I end up at the end of the summer feeling completely depleted and depressed. Summers are great and then they are not. It is endless effort trying to juggle work and camp schedules and make special family time. It makes me completely...

EYE SPY GOOD PUBLIC ART

GO If you live in the Bay Area then take the time this weekend to go check out some freshly finished murals by artist Shepard Fairey. He's been busy all week working on two new pieces in San Francisco. One in Hayes Valley and one in the Mission. I went to check him out at work this week and it was pretty incredible.    American Civics, his solo exhibition at the San Francisco Art Exchange opens this weekend, August 13.  I first met Fairey in 1995 while spending the summer at RISD. Fairey was deep into his iconic portraits of...
