Two weeks ago after 6 weeks away I took the Amtrak from Seattle to Milwaukee with the luxury of a sleeper car (thanks mom!) As my life often seems to dish out wild synchronicity it just so happened  the director Albert Maysles was shooting a documentary about train travel on the trip. We had a late night on camera discussion about inspiration, process and never retiring if you are continually inspired. I also crossed paths with artist Angela Zammarelli & her dude (wrote your name down & now can't find it...classic) which was nice to talk with some like minded folks over breakfast in the dining car. My wild hair decision to throw a party the day after I got back for all the women in my life to fill my home with amazingness panned out to be a very good decision. Cortney pointed out the next day that there was only a single photo posted on the internet from all night (by yours truly) which seemed to logically point at the fact so much conversation was happening no one was on their phones. One of the best observations and compliments a hostess could get. Let me tell you that the volume of 20+ women all catching up can be something else.  And why not take an immediate weekend winter adventure with Kelsey to to see Cate Le Bon in Madison & catch the Anonymous Choir perform in Minneapolis.

2014 the year to reconnect and draw all sorts of amazingness closer is off to a very good start.
