F:  What does your horoscope say for today and do you think it rings true?

L:  It says, “If you think you have to prove that you have something valuable to offer, Scorpio, consider this carefully. You’re naturally friendly and can get along with almost anyone. This may already be your strength. You have something great to bring to a crowd. Consider being yourself and not trying so hard to feel a part of things. Look at your qualities and you will prove your worth to yourself.”  This does feel particularly poignant to me today so thank you,

F:  What was your favorite part about being in Mexico?

L:  The national sites in Mexico City were so grand and awe-inspiring that they made feel very curious to know more about history, architecture and a variety of other topics.  The sense of curiosity was invigorating.

F:  Do you think that we will look back on 2015 as being one of the best years of our lives?

L: Ha!  I have never thought about that.  Sure; let’s do it.

F:  What is your favorite meal that Albert has made for us?

L: I’m really into the spaghetti with meat sauce that he makes.  Simple and delicious!

F:  Who is your favorite character on the show “Parenthood?”

L:  As you might have gathered, we’re pretty deep into this series.  I don’t know whether calling it a guilty pleasure is quite right but it’s close.  Anyway, I think Julia might be my favorite character.  She’s responsible and driven but can still be light-hearted and fun.  Let’s just say she doesn’t sweat the small stuff.

FEELING tired after my travels and having a hard time getting back into the groove at work.

TRYING to beat my Tuesday morning headaches. What gives?!

LOVING that I return back home to sunshine and the ocean.

RECOVERING from a winter sickness that had me down for the count for most of the last couple of days.

LISTENING to The Tim Ferriss Show podcast and trying to soak up all the wisdom of his guests.

MISSING my phone calls with Suz; there’s so much I’d want to tell her.


The weekend before last I joined some old & new friends for a long weekend in Mexico City (which I learned is the second largest city in the world!). I can’t express how much this city has to offer and I’d love to make another trip to keep exploring it.  We stayed in this awesome AirBnB in La Condesa, a somewhat trendy neighborhood with mezcal margaritas abound!  Our mornings were spent at an amazing taco stand conveniently adjacent to friendly neighborhood coffeeshop; afternoons were for taking in the sights.  These are some of my favorite photos from the trip.

We are back in LA after both being away last week.  We’ll post more pictures of our adventures over the next couple of days but here a few to start.  Wishing you a wonderful beginning to your week!

At the end of this week I’m meeting up with some friends in Mexico City; afterwards I am going to stop in Texas to meet up with another friend and take a quick road trip to Marfa, TX.  Marfa is a hub of minimalist art, which I’ve been checking out in a pretty major way since my first trip to the Dan Flavin Institute in Bridgehampton last fall.  At this point Marfa is a place I really only know through word of mouth and Instagram.  I’m super excited to see it for myself and, in the meantime, am reading up on it here | herehere | here | here.
