My Skin In The Game

On Thursday I went to the Jules Stein Eye Institute in Los Angeles, as I do every six weeks to get an injection of Eyelea in my left eye.  Eyelea is a drug has been very effective in controlling the leaking fluid that has, over the past 15 years, damaged the retina …

Drugs: New Fun Facts

I had a very productive conversation with a hairdresser the other day. First, he informed me that once you take LSD, it stays in your body—specifically in your spine—forever. So if you should, say, ride a bucking bronco or do some wacky, pretzel-like yoga pose, it could trigger a flashback. I have …

The Office

There is a Tiny Lady who works in an office down the hall from mine. At least I think she works. As petite as a seventh grader, she is more often in motion than at her presumed desk. She pops up everywhere, her objective being to find conversation. A world-class hall-roamer, she …

Paris, Illinois

Many of you have asked if I’ve  recorded any tracks besides movie soundtracks and family music…I have, only a few, and I just found this one on iTunes…JH as country girl. (Who knew?) Check it out. It’s track 5, a song I wrote called “Paris, Illinois”…
