It’s now called “food insecurity,” but it’s still means the same thing. Being hungry. Not for a few minutes before the microwave dings or before In ‘n Out delivers our double/double with grilled onions and animal fries, but being hungry for hours, days, weeks, and even years. Friends who have shared their childhood memories of […]

Bungalows & Craftsman

Driving the streets of Los Angeles last month, cutting down side streets to avoid the traffic, we remembered the years we lived around the Wilshire District and West Hollywood; the lovely neighborhoods just off busy boulevards, small to medium houses with tidy lawns and constant blooms—and of every architectural style: Spanish, English Tudor, Victorian, Georgian […]

Whisky & Poetry Salon: Three Years!

Whisky & Poetry Salon: Three Years!

How time flies. We’re struggling to acknowledge that it’s been three years (we blinked!) since we walked up six flights of stairs—though with a 3rd landing whisky pick-me-up—to a building-wide penthouse that was surprisingly open and intimate and where in a small corner of the space, mix-matched chairs and a sofa circled around a table […]

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Tis’ the season for pumpkin pies. My soul loves them—my waist does not. So as much as I’m craving that extra slice with a giant dollop of freshly whipped cream, I have to use my willpower and say no. Well…really my uncle Jack had to take the rest of the pie home with him because […]
