Coming & Going

Underwater Sy and Rob

My nephew, Sy, and my brother-in-law, Rob, dive down for the camera!
My trip to Hawaii last week was short but SWEET!
How cool to take photos under water! I will likely never be a diver (my ears are still unhappy about 2 days of snorkeling) but snorkeling is awesome! The quiet of being under water; flowing with the tides; listening to your own breath.. is very meditative.

We were 15 years old and best friends.
At 14, Teri walked into the private school where I was "imprisoned" and I knew we were kindred spirits. She was wild and outrageous, and her hair was big and frizzy, for gawwd's sake!
We were WILD WILD girls. We were all grown up back then. We put on a good show, we did.

Teri & Heather April 2005

My dear old friend, Teri, showed up at my doorstep last month, and although almost 20 years had passed since we'd seen each other, we're still the same really.

We stayed up long into the night for a week talking and smoking and talking and smoking. We both just turned 40, a great turning point, a crossroads, a time to look back and a time to move forward. There have been husbands and children and homes and jobs, and we're still girls who just wanna have fun!

Teri has great stories that entertained me for hours. She's a musician, a music producer, a Scientologist, an activist, and still a free spirit. She's lived and worked with famous and not-so-famous musicians in England, Europe, and Africa, and is now back in the LA scene. Welcome back my friend!

Girls are fun, aren't they?!! Women are my support, my joy, my comfort, and the substance of my life.
That's me in the blue hair (and blue eyelashes)! It was yet another costume party by a group of friends I've been hangin' with lately. They have welcomed me into their amazing group of wild, interesting, and closeknit friends.
Dorene, the one with purple steaked hair on the right, and I worked together 10 yrs ago and was my masseuse for years. She recommended Morgan, top left with pink hair, for a job at my company last year. Morgan became my admin and my friend, and although she has moved on to another job, she will continue to be friend always. And she brought 3 more friends to the company I work for. Dorene in her late 40's and Morgan in her early 20's are great friends. They amaze and inspire me.
