I’m ending this bizarre year with acting work: a commercial and a short film. Both were so much fun – albeit quite surreal, given all of the COVID precautions. I took four tests last week to ensure my health for both projects. I’m extremely happy to be working with safe and kind humans. And I’m…

march or stroll
For me, early March is one of those liminal times — not quite winter anymore, yet not quite spring yet either. I’ve been loving dressing for these in between times — thoughtfully choosing the items that, together, signal this threshold time.
