Big Decisions
Planning my Thelma and Louise

Hello California!

It has happened - Dramatic and  sudden. Change.

I am off to California in the not too distant future. Off like a dirty sock! My heartbreak is finally over, I have learned many things about America, about the South, about the goodness of some people. I have experienced kindness from strangers, love and support from many friends and acquaintances.  And of course, my mentor, Lynne without whom my creative insanity would've crumbled my biscuits completely.

I have favorite shops and places I go to where the workers are familiar with my consumer habits.

Impressions of Tennessee

Beautiful in the spring & summer
Worth a visit
Family & male orientated
Lots to explore
Growing too fast
Closed to foreigners
Precious, because it holds my friends
Should keep me - I'm well worth it

I have had my heart broken, my dreams reshaped and a new understanding emerge with slightly scorched wingtips. I am almost three years older, a lot wiser, somewhat tougher and ready to tackle the hard and glittering world of Los Angeles. I have a friend to go to. This makes all the difference in the world. I must be stone mad: I'm in the middle of my life (maybe), a stranger in a strange land, a rebellious woman without pause or apology - only cause and analogy.

I leave my small southern past behind in Tennessee, my great pain and wonderful friends.

It's California, baby! Bag lady or Malibu? Who knows? Adventure is a-calling!

My Plan

to begin a TV channel
to finally be able to buy a pro-digital video camera
to own my own satellite and rent out the transponder space
to have a decent jar of beluga caviar someday soon

I am being driven out of Tennessee by lack of opportunity, past heartache and the unquenchable desire to get back into doing what I enjoy most: television and film. I have such good talents which need to see the light of the American day

This has got to be the most magnificent dog in the  American history of Dobermans. I am proud to say that I had a positive influence on her life when she was younger.  She has a good life and is well loved. I still miss her. (Nasty divorce and all that sort of thing...)


She must be mad - driving to California with three cats, a bicycle a teeny weeny bit of money. She is brave, foolish and undaunted, if a tad dented


I received a delightful calendar from the Egg Board of America. Thanks, egg people.


Ode to the Egg:

O Eggie, O Eggie, none better than the Eggie!

From bum of chicken to plate of prince, personable, satisfying, uncomplaining and nice to eat

Eggs grow leggs - eventually - and run off to greener pastures

How interesting is the Egg!

Goodbye to my favorite heartbreak healers:

Big Lots, Second Time Around, Mildred

Alternative Life

My parents called yesterday from South Africa. I was extremely touched by my father saying that I am one of the most courageous women he has ever known to not only move countries without any resources on the other side but all the things I have achieved and undertaken in life. I get a gold star for that one. I think the family must miss me a little back home because they have never said anything so supportive before. My dad is having spinal surgery tomorrow and I am concerned. Africa is so far away and who the hell wants to fly on Jihad Airways? - certainly not me. I can only put my fingers together, do the "ommmmmm" thingey and wait...

Goodbye for now:

Lynne Martin, Ernestine Harrington, Leanne Harrington, Mary Ellen Spear, Jim Norton, Linda Politte, California Annie, Natascha Tachuk, Kim Jones, Kris & Kelly Diponzio, Peggy & Tami, Tammy Ratliff, Lolita White, Angela Burum, Latoya, Deb Morley, Darla, Lolita White, Kelly Sharber

Goodbye my lost love. It is finally over. The castle crumbled, the magic became dust.

I waited.

I have to go. Life is calling.

California - here I come!
