A Walking Meditation
This past weekend I took my daughter for a hike to the famed Hollywood sign. After all the years I’ve lived in LA, after all the hiking trails I’ve trekked, this was the first time I’ve been to this historical landmark. My daughter is fourteen and would rather be on a volleyball court than on a trail, but she did this for me because she knew how important it was, and I wanted to share this experience with her.
Pondering in a Parade - (With Ben & Jen)
This year on the Fourth of July I marched in our hometown parade with Ben and Jen, and yes, I'm talking about Affleck and Garner. We were with our kids and our Patriotic Pups and when I saw them, I knew they looked familiar, but I thought I recognized them as parents at the elementary school, or from basketball or volleyball, as neighbors and members of the community, never realizing I had Batman and one of Tinseltown’s greatest child advocates and actresses before me. And that happens sometimes living in the Palisades.
