There is something so vulnerable about placing yourself in front of someone else and saying “I have something to show you.” When that something is a song, a voice, a guitar, and a leap of faith – it can be an extraordinarily intimate moment without a single point of physical contact. That moment – that…

I realize that I should have crossed off #50 many many moons ago. After frequent visits to my family’s farm in Canada, I fell in love with fresh produce. My partner and I, upon moving in together in Sherman Oaks, CA, began regularly spending our Sunday morning at the local Farmer’s market. I’m now on a special…

This past fall, after finishing my stint as a volunteer for that one guy (Barack Obama), I was honored with the opportunity to travel to Washington DC and work with an organization called Free the Slaves (www.freetheslaves.net). As it’s name clearly states, their mission is to eradicate slavery. Yup… there are still SLAVES in the…

#41: Shabbat Shalom

March 29th, 2009

I love it when I cross off items on the “Life To Do List” without even trying. This occurs when life just happens to coincide with what I’d like to be doing with my time and energy. Is there a better way for life to unfurl, really? This past Friday night, I was the host…
