Something Slightly Different

Posted: July 16, 2017 in Uncategorized

Last 4th of July, I was at a party with several people in and out of the Los Angeles theater scene. I happen to meet a lovely, intelligent and down to earth woman. She was actor, producer and writer.

She advised me to write a book. I sent her a few posts from this blog. Again, she told me to write the book about my life. She told me to call our host of the party to get advise. 

I did speak to him. Got great advice. And now I must find my voice. It’s difficult, but I’ve started. Wish me luck!

Major Update

My story is this – I had a lithium induced seizure on Christmas 2015. It was followed by two weeks in a coma. For what seemed like an eternity, I couldn’t walk or eat (extreme nausea). Still, that wasn’t the worse. I suffer from memory loss, my reading level was 2nd grade and writing was not an option. After coming home in February, I fell several times. This caused a pinched nerve that makes any type of walking painful and tiring. Today I walk (with a cane or walker. I can read anything and write my poetry. I still require a plethora of medication and physical therapy. The good news is I’m alive and loved by a great husband and army of family and friends.

So, on Monday (in 4 days) I will be getting my knee replacement surgery. This bipolar succinctly goes through a plethora of thoughts and emotions. And now I’ve stopped .

What do I want to do, think or say? Music! That’s it. I need to think about a Top Ten Playlist for knee surgery and/or hospitalization. This may take a while.

1. Like A Surgeon – Weird Al Yankovic

2. Flagpole Sitta – Harvey Danger

3. Not The Doctor – Alanis Morrisette

4. The First Cut Is the Deepest – Rod Stewart

5. King of Pain – The Police

6. Just Like A Pill – Pink

7. Everybody Hurts – R.E.M.

8. Hurt’s So Good – John Mellencamp

9. Scar Tissue – The Red Hot Chili Peppers

10. Walk This Way – by Aerosmith

Welcome to my lovely racial puzzle.

Medicated Words

I have much to say on the topic of self-realization and how I take note of the ‘beautiful people’ in the world. Such topics could take a lifetime to type out. So I’ll try my best to summarize.

For the first 8 years of my life my self-image was wonderful. I lived in a neighborhood where almost everyone looked like me. Throw in some cute ponytails and frilly dresses and I was adorable.

Then we moved to Pasadena, California. Culture shock on steroids! I had never seen black people, Asians, Armenians, Jews, Russians and everyone else. They scared me. Especially the black kids. Keep in mind I wasn’t even ten when this happened.

In retrospect, the black kids probably scared me because their skin was the most pronounced. Once a black girl had lunch and a very honest conversation with me I was no longer scared.

Then she asked a question…

Can we say ‘ Jim Darling For President’? I don’t even care if he’s Republican. He’s a decent human being and I like that!

Say It Ain't So Already

Here is a letter (dated June 30, 2014) to the editor of the Texas Tribune from the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Jim Darling.  He sounds like a lovely man:

What’s Really Happening on the Border

The city of McAllen — grappling with the humanitarian effort brought about by the influx of thousands of immigrant families and unaccompanied youth into the country this year — has found itself at the center of an extraordinary immigration situation.

Our city is working with the U.S. Border Patrol, Hidalgo County, nongovernmental organizations like Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army, and dozens of volunteers to provide modest humanitarian relief to these immigrants, most of whom are from Central America.

After an arduous journey, many (but not all) of these migrants are detained and processed by the Border Patrol. “Family units,” mostly women with young children, are dropped off at the McAllen bus station…

Hilarously Important

This is how I extended my heart and family. 14 years-ago. I posted this over a year ago.

I was thinking about hilarious moments in my life where I looked and felt like a first class idiot.  There is value in summoning these memories when life gets hard.

Sometimes I get too full of myself and need to be brought down a peg or two. Other times, I remember how such silly moments ended up defining my relationship with others.

In September of 1999, my then boyfriend (now husband), Scott took me to New York to meet his parents. Our future best man, drove us to his parents’ place from JFK.

As soon as he pulled up to the house, I saw Scott’s parents come out to greet us. As I stepped out of the car, I slipped and fell on the stones lining their front yard. I was mortified!

Scott’s mother later told me, at that moment she knew I would fit right into the family. She and Scott’s father could…
