ATX backyard view

How's this for a backyard? And who would have guessed in ATX, TX?

Me and Wendell

I don't know many actors, nor do I usually ask to have my photo taken with the famous - friends, associates or otherwise. But I couldn't resist when I ran into Wendell Pierce at the MD Film Festival. What a great actor. What a gorgeous voice! Just loved getting to meet him for a minute and talk in person. He took the photo :)

I miss mine too

Filofaxes, Mundis, days of dreaming, notes and tasks. My systems, my lists. It was the address book that pushed me over to the Palm - that and the heaviness of the little looseleaf planners themselves. But how I loved the visual record. I have years in my closet. Sad, sad, sad.

Carry On Packing Tips courtesy of NYT

I can't stand checking bags! And as I've been traveling more, I've been losing more (like my raincoat and new cosmetics last year enroute to Cannes, and my Bose headphones just last week somewhere along the Toronto/Maryland axis. I brought two bags because of a friend's comment, and regret it. Having two bags makes it almost harder to keep track.) I'm pretty good at keeping it lean but will try this to see if it helps.
