Every Day is a Sunny Day

Every Day is a Sunny Day

As I stand and announce, “I have to go,” photographer Sunny Bak, my neighbor and adorable friend, replies in a nice dominatrix voice, “Nobody leaves. We have to watch one more episode.” She’s right. We are shamelessly addicted to the gripping TV show Homeland. We think Claire Danes is a nutcase–and that’s why we’re obsessed […]

What the Hell Did You Eat?

What the Hell Did You Eat?

Dear Battleaxe, I recently had a cough and bought some cough drops. The little wrappers had various messages inside:“A pep talk in every drop”,  “Put a little strut in it” and “Let’s hear your battle cry.” I guess some marketing person thought it was clever. What do you think? Dear Eucalyptus Breath, It might be […]

The Perfect Gift for Your Lover

The Perfect Gift for Your Lover

The Perfect Holiday Present for Your Lover: Your Presence! It’s that time of the year again.  The alleged joy of the season is often overshadowed by stressful questions, like How/When/Where can I find the Perfect Gift for my lover?  What if I think it’s perfect, and she doesn’t? What if I give her X, and […]

Franny Doolittle, Hawk Whisperer

So this juvenile red tailed hawk flew into my friend’s house, straight through the garden door and into the living room. The hawk was perching up in the rafters and swooped down repeatedly crashing into the picture window, stunning herself and then trying again. Ouch! Poor baby.  I was alone at the time, just me […]

Got Boos?!

Got Boos?!

Halloween has been and always will be my favorite holiday.  Am I alone in this?  Sure hope not. As a lesbian I note how many people love to somehow turn Halloween into some weird thing about how and why LGBT individuals enjoy it so. How about it’s just fun as hell?! Wait, could it be…why […]

My Left Breast – I think I’ll Keep It

October is breast cancer awareness month. I do not need a month to make me aware of breast cancer. I do not need a Susan Komen walk or an Avon walk to remind me of breast cancer. I do not need a pink ribbon either. I need only look at my left breast- the scar […]

ART TO GO!

ART TO GO!

One of the best things about being a painter is being able to invite friends in the Bay Area to join me in my studio every year for Open Studios.  I have the amazing good luck to be an artist in the most beautiful city in the world that is home to thousands of us […]

Lesbian Sex: How The Truth Can Set You Free

When I was a teenager a booklet mysteriously appeared on a book shelf in the family room.  It was called, curiously enough,  What Teenagers Need To Know about Sex.  I immediately sneaked it upstairs and read it from cover to cover.  Then I sneaked it back onto the shelf.  It took me years to realize […]

Depression is Not A Point of View

Depression is Not A Point of View

Depression is one of my realities. One that I, personally, deal with on a somewhat cyclical basis. I tell myself I am too lucky, too successful, too well adjusted (hah!) too old (or young) too fill-in-the-blanks to be feeling the way that I sometimes do about my life. Then I remember that what I am feeling is not […]
