Hollywood is a state of mind, one I’m happy to call home.

I’ve been traveling. From the east…


To the high plains…

Following a road that filled my heart.

If you’ve been reading along on the blog you’ll know I have a tendency to be both blithe and barbed, and sometimes prone to exaggeration.

But as a famous character once said, in a movie made once upon a time in Hollywood, “There’s no place like home,” and I have to say Ms. Dorothy Gale nailed it.

It’s good to be here and I hope wherever you are, you feel the same.

      It feels grand! Which is not to say I didn’t LOVE the east coast, and all the points between there and home, but you’re right, it feels mighty good to be back. xox, V

    I’m glad you’re home! It was wonderful to see a little of my old stomping grounds through your eyes, but I take great comfort in knowing you’re back where you belong and I’ll get to see a little more of your dreamy, crazy place.

      Boston was very kind to me — I know I didn’t experience the snow — but what a great city. I hope you and the family are settling happily in your new home.
