Thank God you updated! I was getting worried - did you get my voicemail & e-mail? We were just at the Kohl's house Monday night (early morning Dr. Langman tests) and thought of you guys A LOT!

Avery had fun dancing to your music this morning!

Take care!


Did you make up that Ella Fitzgerald/glowing brain story just so you could fix the photos? ;)

I hope you guys had a very happy Christmas!

Kyla-I wouldn't put that past me. But, sadly, no. Universal Music Group is putting blinking psychedelia brains next to Ella. Automation is sometimes a very sad thing.




Moreena, you made me smile HUGE today. I love the music and I loved seeing the girls in their hats and scarves. It makes them all (even my 15 year old) look like babies again. Beautiful girls. Happy, happy, fun, fun!


I love the video. but how is Annika?


Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year, hopefully much more laid back than the last one!

All the best,


HAHA a blinking brain. Sanity...brains blinking on and off...sounds pretty accurate, at least in my case.

sanity is overrated anyhow. And boring.

Happy New Year!

kathy a.

Best wishes -- hope the New Year is off to a good start for all. :)

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
