So What

    Sometimes people let the same problems make them miserable for years when they could just say, “So what.” That’s one of my favorite things to say. “So What.”…

     I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned to do that trick. It took me a long time to learn it, but once you do you never forget.

White Disaster

Andy Warhol told Gene Swenson one reason he used silk screens was that he thought somebody should be able to do all his paintings for him; he thought it would be great if more people took up silk screens so no one would know whether pictures were his or someone else’s.

Path Of Happiness

Photographer of Paul and Stella McCartney: Harry Benson

“You may feel stuck – trapped in a bad relationship, grieving over a divorce, miserably and interminably single – but it is in your power, and your best health interest, to choose joy. Okay, so you can’t find romance. Or your soul mate doesn’t feel the same way about you.  But you can put yourself in the path of happiness. You can fall in love with life.”

— Lesley Dorman

How You Feel

Look for the people who can take ownership and accountability. Look for the people who care about how you feel. Look for the people who align their words and their actions. Look for the people who care about what’s going on in your inner world. Look for the people who prioritize seeing, hearing, and understanding you. — Vienna Pharaon

Fills Me With Ease

Sunset Strip near Sweetzer, 1949.

A good part of any day in Los Angeles is spent driving, alone, through streets devoid of meaning to the driver, which is one reason the place exhilarates some people, and floods others with an amorphous unease. There is about these hours spent in a transit a seductive unconnectedness. — Joan Didion

Here is what I think about my drives through Los Angeles:

A good part of any day in Los Angeles is spent driving, alone, through streets very meaningful to me. My drives in Los Angeles exhilarates me and fills me with ease. There is about these hours spent in a transit a seductive connectedness.
