Parks & Rec Dance Recital

Well the big day has arrived.  The girls' SPRING FLING is tonight!!!!!!

(We got to film the dress rehearsal.)

I just love their dance teacher.  She is firm yet loving.  She is professional yet accepts hugs readily.  She works so hard and must be absolutely exhausted...yet no one would ever know it.



Shahrizoda  / Zion's Ballet Routine
(PAUSE my Music Player first)



This group is precious.  Zion is one of the oldest students and it is a joy to sit in weekly as the little ones grow more and more confident and less and less shy.




Venezuelan Waltz / Galilee, Jemima, Zion's Ballet Routine





This group is a blast.  At 9, Zion is the youngest student.  There are 3 teens... including Galilee and Jemima...and the rest of the dancers are adults.   The oldest is in her 70's.

I'm so proud of Galilee and Jemima...who are willing to give anything "a go..." even if they aren't totally sold on an idea.

A highlight for me is seeing how well the ensemble worked together week in and week out.  More than that though....seeing them all in the same princess tutus is the cherry on top of a wonderful experience. 



My phone died just as I was filming....

Alladin / Zion's Tap Routine.  So that magic wasn't captured on film.

We heard rumblings that the girls had to touch the boys for the still photo...but we didn't actually believe it until the shots came in a few weeks later.

Yep...they touched the boys.

Memorial Day Trip


Roadside stand outside of Santa Barbara....Avocados...$1 / 10!!!!!!!








Old Mission Santa Barbara was having it's annual Italian Street Art Festival.


^ We bought Zion some pastels cuz she was inspired :)


On the drive up to Solvang...we spotted a humongous wild fire in the Santa Ynez mountains.



Solvang is a funny little town. 


And on the drive back into town...another fire.


As we were celebrating a vacation day and remembering our fallen heroes...we were reminded of the everyday local heroes in our midst.

Facebook Thread / London Machete Weilding Islamic Terrorists








This thread from a friend's fb wall is very interesting....to me.

Worldview discussions...they are where it's at.   Trying to discern where people are coming from.  Discovering the way they think. 

Illogical thinking...irks me.  

The thread lost Claire.  She erased her comments and never came back.  Hopefully she is thinking deeper. 

Hopefully she didn't leave or won't stay away due to pride.

New Representation



I am happy to say that I am now representing Bradley Gregg.  I have been a fan of his work and am thrilled to be representing him now that he is in Los Angeles and ready to dive back into the industry.

He is such a gifted actor and my goal is to re-introduce him to the industry and to the people who know him, and to create new fans among those who are less familiar.  As someone who knows him and his work, I do hope you will keep him in mind and help us ignite his career once again.




Bradley is a contemporary of actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, River Phoenix, Ethan Hawke, Giovanni Ribisi, Johnny Depp, and Michael Rapaport, having worked with them and had equally successful starts to his career.  Bradley’s first notable role was as Eyeball Chambers inStand By Me.  His career catapulted from there with roles in features such as Nightmare on Elm Street 3, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Fisher King and recurring roles on TV in Lonesome Dove , E.R. and O Pioneers among others.   Bradley has worked with Rob Reiner, Wes Craven, Steven Spielberg, Terry Gilliam, and opposite actors David Morse, Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Jeff Bridges, Robin Williams, Robert Patrick, Kiefer Sutherland, Dennis Hopper and Lara Flynn Boyle.  After taking a hiatus to raise a family, Bradley is back in Los Angeles, and positioned to once again bring his talent’s to the big and small screen.
