Me Too

I hesitated to write this post because I've "only" experienced sexual harassment and not sexual assault. I felt guilty. Like I would be taking attention away from the more important problem of sexual assault. But I've realized that while assault is farther across the line, harassment is definitely on the same side of the line... Continue Reading →

Film Friends: Amy and Bryan Storkel, and Jason Connell

My film friends, Bryan & Amy Storkel and Jason Connell have produced a film about card-counting Christians who are professional blackjack players called Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians. I've been following this film for a while. I've seen several pieces of advanced footage and have been honoured to support it's development in several... Continue Reading →

Film Friends: Vessie Kazachka

My friend Vessie Kazachka was Second AC on the Oscar-winning film "The Artist" and I remember her telling us while it was being shot that she thought it was a good film and that she was proud to be working on it. This was before the Weinsteins got wind of it. Vessie also worked on my short film, Sonny!... Continue Reading →

My Current Workout Regime

I just moved, with my husband, across the country - from LA to NYC.  I was doing weekly sprints ( more like monthly, but I was doing them!), sporadic strength training, and occasional walks with my hubby.  But then we started packing! Since the first empty box was opened until now (except for a brief... Continue Reading →

Getting around Injinji!

Don't get me wrong.  I *love* my Injinji socks.  I've just got a tight budget right now and can't buy enough for every day of the week!  So how do I wear my Vibrams without buying a ton of special socks?  Simple.  I make toeless socks. They're like fingerless gloves; but they're for your feet! It's... Continue Reading →

Tasty Trailers: DIRT

Dirt. It's a good thing. I consider it mother nature's vaccine. I like to play in it. Grow stuff in it. And sling it at that cute boy I married. We can tend to sometimes think of dirt as dead. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, ya know?  But dirt is a community of... Continue Reading →

Wet Grass

I went down to the Rose Bowl for my sprints this morning.  The grass had received a buzz-cut and it was rather wet. My vibrams ended up looking like this! It was a good workout.  I ran further and faster than ever and felt great afterwards.

CANADIANS AREN’T ALL LAW-ABIDING!

Here's a report from the Atlantic about some Canadian's who are bucking the law for the sake of their health and/or their pocketbook!  Well, I suppose I can't say why they're doing it.  But I know why I would! First of all, as fellow Canadian Meghan points out (in this excellent little blog post), good eggs... Continue Reading →

A Hobbit Home!

I like eco-friendly, low-impact, sustainable, recyclable practices. I buy organic, local, grass-fed, pastured, raw food and even just got a plot at a local urban garden! So when I came across this home, you can imagine my delight! The builder is a photographer! I think this photo is beautiful. Can't you just imagine sipping hot... Continue Reading →
