Dream a little dream. I’m a practical gal and I’m not a big dreamer and have basically followed every job from one to the next without a big plan. Having just turned 59, I’m amazed as I look back at how varied my work has been. When the sun comes up and I’m standing in a makeup and hair trailer at my job, waiting to go do my work, it never ceases to amaze me that I get to do this. That I get to pretend to be other people. I get to work with creative people. That’s it’s how I make my living. My sweet friend @seanjameshair hair feels the same way. He took this picture this morning as I was stepping out of the trailer. I’m sure he felt the same as he stepped off the plane from Australia all those years ago, knowing no one here and creating a big life in the arts. We both are feeling very lucky today and immensely grateful. @newgirlonfox
Apparently my barrista at @lovecoffeebar thinks I deserve some. We all do. Children do. The earth does. Animals do. First responders do. Everyone, despite our differences and disputes does. Remember what The Beatles said. “And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love
Courage to change the things they can. Jung said “only that which changes remains true” and Gandhi said “be the change you want to see in the world.” These women and hundreds of thousands if not millions of others are creating that change with their courage and honesty. I thank you @time and thank you to each and everyone of them if these brave women and men.
Today is #nationaladoptionday I wrote this book almost 20 years ago to help people understand how adoption works in a family. Adoption is sacred and like all families, filled with real people and feelings and imprints. The joys and sorrows of each adoptive story are the threads of a tapestry in a world filled with similar stories of families being born, devoted to each other. I honor my children and my husband and family and their biological families and all who open their hearts and minds to adoption.
When I had the privilege of going to Cuba I was so impressed with the history, culture, beauty and thriving spirit. I loved visiting @clandestina99. These two young women, entrepreneurs and artists are transforming Cuba with their signature brand of creativity, clothes and fun objects. Today they launch their first ever online store from Cuba. Please check it out and support. Website in bio! Clandestina.co #clandestinaonline
In this wonderful year of Wonder Woman comes a delightful book for children called Superheroes Club. The central message is that a superhero is not what they look like but what they do. A message of caring and sharing, much-needed in this time of division and hatred. A loving gift for a child in your life. #superheroesclub
There are times when we all are one. Every time there is a catastrophe, we focus, often on a single image, and our human need to help and heal emerges. @strongerthefilm and the story of #jeffbauman and his family and girlfriend tells such a story. It LIFTS you UP and makes you realize that we all are STRONGER together. I urge you to go today, on the birth of this film and be transported and made better by it. #strongermovie #strengthdefinesus In Theaters September 22nd!
This is what community looks like. Today in Malibu People came together, sacrificing personal time,suiting up and showing up, some people blood sweat and tears all to help raise money to help children who need our help. @nautica @childrensla In this bifurcated country it is crucial to remember that we CAN come TOGETHER and FOCUS on our most vulnerable citizens....CHILDREN!
