Marina, Barbara, Joyce....Three fab MOMS!

I was having this amazing run, when out of nowhere, I started visualizing my Mom, MARINA, putting on makeup and fixing her hair. I was just a child in this vision that was running through my consciousness as I ran on Lankershim in North Hollywood. I was just gazing at mom and she looked beautiful. I know why I received this unexpected thought/gift. My best friend Steve Worth's mom, BARBARA WORTH, recently passed on, and I had the honor of helping him collect some items from his mom's former residence. I saw the hat, and without any reservation, I asked Steve if I could have it. Without any hesitation, he said,"Yes, of course, it was my mom's favorite hat, and it's been all over the world!" This is the lovely Barbara Worth wearing her favorite hat:)

Next is me wearing the hat, and I'm ready to carry on the tradition of such an extraordinary gift; which, in my view, is the gift of recollecting life's treasured moments. Thank you, Barbara, and thank you, Steve! I love my life, love, jd

I still don't have my truck, as the girl who slammed into it has no insurance. There are no mistakes; because, today's run, which sparked my "Hat" memory, was also an errand to the bank. If I had gone to make this deposit in my truck, I would not have received my treasured memory.
I've two weeks away from finishing the edit on my latest feature film, THE TEACHER'S LOUNGE! Yay!
Last year, I went to Lake Tahoe with my soulmate Tobi. She is originally from there and we stayed at her house. Her mom, JOYCE, was so warm to me, and made me feel so welcome! I just wanted to pay tribute to her beautiful soul as well!
