i cannot get enough of deb talan and the weepies. her lyrics and voice just make me slip away into thought and warmth. on a totally different note, did anyone see madonna’s performance for LiveEarth? holy smokes, she is still so hot and in shape and amazing. i hadn’t seen her in awhile (you know, it’s been awhile since we’ve had tea, what with our busy schedules and all) and was blown away by her performance. she’s gorgeous. gorgeous! so yes, i’ll admit i’m a huge madonna fan. i always have been…like when i was 10 years old and wore madonna-inspired jelly bracelets all the way up my arms along with torn shirts and tights. those were also the years of choreographing countless dance routines to “true blue” and “lucky star” with my neighborhood friends. oh god, such fun!

1991, 16 long years ago

i even loved her in my teen years when it wasn’t cool to be a madonna fan. here’s a photo from our silly (and hilarious) madonna club in highschool. like complete dorks, the four of us would wear our home-made madonna t-shirts on the same day to school. we were total dorks, professing our love for her in the early 90’s when it seemed everyone else was listening to nirvana, pearl jam, and jane’s addiction. i have such fond memories of driving around in my little car with the sunroof open while my girlfriends and i would sing “vogue” or “into the groove” at the top of our lungs. i hope passersby smiled sweetly and thought “oh, youth!” as i do today when i see such silliness. man. memories….my favorite madonna phase remains her bohemian phase with the “Like a Prayer” album. what’s yours????

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
