Conversation Series

Stories Are What Connect Us

Eavesdrop on my conversations with dear friends as we share memories and trade stories of surviving & thriving.

Heres a Confession

I picked one that read ”If you were to teach somebody something, what would you teach them?” I said, yoga. Then Jimmy pulled a question. “What was an experience you had where you didn’t go with your gut?” He replied, “That time I ordered a lamb burger in Kathmandu!”

Connie Nelson

In head-to-toe denim, a streak of blue winking in her hairdo, the statuesque Texan Connie Nelson drops into my Bankers Hill home to share stories of life on the road.

Ruby Mazur

I chat with Rolling Stones’ “Mouth & Tongue” artist Ruby Mazur about pulling off the greatest scam in rock n’ roll history.

A Conversation with Richard & Diane Nares

There is nothing more satisfying than spending time around your kitchen table with old friends. On a bright, Saturday morning, Jimmy and I welcomed two of our most cherished friends to the house: Richard and Diane Nares. Richard had just completed a 1,700 mile run.

Bruce Springsteen

I go backstage with “The Boss,” bearded men, and booted women.

Learning To Begin Again

No better way to / Haiku, crystal clear waters / Ocean breeze surrounds
When I was at Rhode Island School of Design, Jim Croce bought me three haiku books. I have cherished them for my entire life. Jim loved the art of haiku. The sound of it. Deep pain and deep calm oscillate through the lines. I’ve used his favorite haiku poems as inspiration for my collages — all of love, loss, and memory sing through the syllables of his poems. I hope they sing for you too.
Christian Zervos’ 33-volume catalogue of Picasso’s work is a monumental achievement, the culmination of a life time of critique and dedication. Making my own, modest attempt at a “catalogue raissoné” is a reminder of where I’ve been - and inspiration for the journey ahead. #TakeYourInventory
