Just following the meme...Many folks here don't know me well, since I haven't been regularly posting.
1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
I went to my jr. high prom with Woody T.
2. Who was your FIRST love and do you still talk with him/her?… Read full post »
The whole family: Dad, Mom, Ricky, Me, Chip.
Monday is the anniversary of my Bat Mitzvah. It doesn’t seem possible that it was so long ago - I mean I can still hear the band playing, still feel my voice tremble as I started to sing that first… Read full post »
I posted about my dad last year for Father’s Day,
you walk so fast” and its still one of my best and
most personal posts.
But today I spent the morning with some friends, new parents, and as I wished Ben a happy father’s day I started… Read full post »
Wanna see my new site? I've been hard at work updating my personal portfolio site. Since everyone here at Open Salon loves my avatar, I figured I'd put it front and center - creating a connection between the two blogs. Open is for fun - D O R E… Read full post »
A self portrait from freshman year. Now you see what I mean about being just ok.
Freshman year at college was a mind-blower. Surrounded by
extremely talented artists who were far more sophisticated, and
who'd had professional training, I began to doubt myself and my
It was like I… Read full post »
Ok - I will play:
1. I was in a terrible move with Sylvester Stallone and Dolly Parton called Rhinestone. I hope no-one saw it.
Yep this one is the lie. (I always lead with the lie - when I'm showing different design directions the first one I show… Read full post »
(Jean, Marcy and me at Marcy's engagement party. Yes, look at our big hair, shoulders and earrings. We were fashion goddesses.)
When Joan asks, I deliver the goods. I just have - lets say quirky - taste.
So first I put her in a lovely spring hat with flowers.
The I decided to go retro. This hat is like one I wore proudly in junior high.

Describe Yourself: Elvis Presley
We are one. No really.
How do some people feel about you: I Want You, I Need You, I Love You
As do I.
How do you feel about yourself: Hound Dog
He's also a Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love.

Barry at 16 or 17: a self portrait of the hippydopersurfer.
I don’t really need to give much of an intro to Barry - to me he’s the heart and soul of Open Salon. He’s an artist in every way, and also just a really great guy. He’s… Read full post »
I've scanned more pictures of Providence, College Hill and RISD. These are better than the first round I think. I guess I was practicing. This shot really encapsulates the RISD experience for me - from the RISD coffee shop on the left, to Suicide Circle down the hill -… Read full post »
Freshman year of college I took a required class in photography. It was really the first time I'd ever taken any photos other than the typical pics you take of your friends, family and events. We learned the basics, how to shoot (film people, film,) develop and print.
I'd pretty… Read full post »

This weekend I’ve been in Memphis, attending and speaking at the Information Architecture (IA) Summit. What’s IA, you ask? We spent a whole lot of time debating it, talking about what we do and how we do it and how we are different and yet the same as other design professions… Read full post »
We’d just spent the day at Great Adventure, in New Jersey. It must have been early June, after classes had ended, and before I was due to go to camp. Katie, who’d been my roommate freshman year was driving her VW Rabbit, and Nicki was sitting in the front, playing with… Read full post »
A couple of days ago I got inspired and put up some more albums on my wall. You can see the others in the kitchen and the bedroom. From the left, I've put up Grace Jones, the Fifth Dimension, Talking Heads, Don McLean, Bobby Sherman, Queen, Frampton, Partridge Family… Read full post »
My mom tried to friend me on Facebook. Seriously. I talk to her every day, there’s no need to “re-connect.” So I had to politely ask why she wanted to be my friend. She said it was the thing - she heard about it and wanted to try it. … Read full post »
Last thursday night at around 9 pm I was flying over Dallas, about to land and then grab another flight into SFO and I started thinking about Barry. Barry lives here - and its been a really long time since I read his stuff or saw his photos. I sure do… Read full post »
My dad was into films, and as a little girl he and I would watch movies on TV together. We shared all kinds of films, mysteries, love stories, musicals. I love ‘em all.

Bianca grabbed the package out of my hand tonight, demanding I change her outfit and take photo.
"Its too goddamn big for me," she snarled. "I'm very delicate."
Little Elvis just confessed that he's crushing on Freaky.
Not only is he planning on making Freaky some cake, but he wants to serve it with some fried bananas and peanut butter while singing "I want you, I need you, I love you."
Freaky damn you -… Read full post »
I've been thinking lately about being at home, and what that means. I am a nester - I like to have all my stuff around me in case I might need it. I am comforted by my books, art and junk, and without all the stuff I feel disconnected.
