By the time you’re done reading this…

By the time you’re done reading this, you’re not going to believe me… Prior to leaving New York City in 1990, I was in a French Canadian documentary entitled “New York Doré.” It was an honor, to say the least, to be selected to participate in this phenomenal project. The director, Suzanne Guy, had befriended me, and …

Exhale. Create space.

Discarding things that have outlived their usefulness shifts the energy and calls in the new. So in honor of the New Year and our New Mantra, “Just Breathe,” we’re doing just that — making space, throwing out, re-organizing, making sense of the chaos and focusing on the important things.
