I was raised in Palo Alto, California when it was a breeding ground for creativity:
Terri Hatcher & James Franco
I thought all kids had their grilled cheese made by one of the first women to climb Annapurna, or it was usual to sneak cookies from a Nobel Peace Prize Recipients
These pioneers lead by quiet example and always encouraged us kids to get dirty and do things on our own.
With this directive and my plentiful energy, my days were full of make-believe, music, dance, technology, and art.
With a bike, a dog, & an unlimited imagination-- I had it all.
Years passed. I grew up.
My creativity was used in more practical pursuits.
With a husband, the world’s best dog, and a dishwasher--
I had it all.
In a BIG way
In a way that designated the way back
to my creative roots and imagination.
i express, i create, i demonstrate
informed and inspired by my life experiences
on the stage, on film, or on the written page.
