On a day of immense historic, religious, and sentimental sadness with the burning of Notre Dame, I allow my mind to flicker back into memory…

We cycle like seasons

The smile of spring

The caress of summer

The fall into your arms

Neon LA

We had long lost the spectacle of our rose-colored sunsets and settled seamlessly into the soft-focused shades of impending night.  Block by block hidden yearnings revealed themselves as the city glistened in the twilight of our dreams.

A vintage glow of a modern city.

Shadows & Sea

Was he the author of his dreams, surveying the scene on a cool California day or a time traveling wanderer lost in reverie?  

I am inspired by the cinematic view of this gentleman gazing off to Catalina Island.

Dreams of Spring

Dreaming of spring and threefold joy

In flowering flesh

In sacred heart

And mind

We find the time to renew,

Let sunlight be our candlelight

You left me and the rains came,

gently lingering like the full flush of my cheek

when you kissed me goodbye.

The Most Merry Poppins

I saw “Mary Poppins Returns” on opening day and liked it a lot. I was pleasantly relieved and would give it a B+ overall, with most of the performances an A-. The story could be better, and the movie was a bit long and slow in parts. I do miss Julie Andrews as Mary and her chemistry with Bert, as well as hilarious moments, but this movie was solid! The score was very good, and I loved how they incorporated instrumental leitmotifs from the original “Mary Poppins” score, as appropriate, into this movie.

Ol’ Blue Eyes

Happy Birthday, Frank!

Remembering one of the most iconic, influential and stunningly talented singers of all time. My life would be incredibly different without Frank’s songs, from the red-hot ring-a-ding-ding of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” to the swoon-worthy “Moonlight Serenade.” He was a complicated cat as ever we’d seen, but his music has inspired my life in countless ways. Happy Birthday, Frank! We love you, now and always.
