Tonight's first presidential debate is sure to snag enormous ratings. For weeks, I've been asking strangers about the election. One 24-year-old woman who works at a cafe near me said that while she's voting, a bunch of her millennial friends aren't. What?? The moment I turned 18, I felt grateful for my right to vote. Women's suffrage in the U.S. was granted less than 100 years ago. Use your voice. VOTE.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — With millions watching and the American presidency on the line, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are poised for a must-see showdown Monday night, pitting the Democrat's call for steady, experienced…

Please check out my new Associated Press story on interesting and unusual indoor plant displays, from built-ins - such as a living green bathroom wall - to wall pockets. 
Imagine stepping into a bathtub, and instead of bathroom tiles lining the wall next to you, there's a fresh vertical garden, lush with bright green ferns, lavender, baby's tears, mint and other fragrant plants. Unusual ways to display indoor plants run the gamut, from built-in shelves and containers in and along walls, countertops or tables, to wall pockets and terrariums. "Decorating with plants is still one of the easiest ways to make a home ...

Check out my new Los Angeles Times travel story on upcoming SoCal celebrations of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, from this Saturday's huge L.A. Chinatown harvest moon festival to one at the end of the month at the Huntington Library. 
Every year in Southern California, families and friends mingle at celebrations of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a Chinese national holiday that’s more than 2,000 years old. It pays homage to the moon and harvest and boasts its own sweet pastries named mooncakes.

On this 15th anniversary of Sept. 11, I'm honored that Angels Flight • literary west magazine has published my poem "9/11: The Hole and the Heart," which I wrote 15 years ago, while living in NYC. I took the photos in 2001, during that time. #Sept11 #memory

Fifteen years later, we remember 9/11 with a prose poem written in 2001 by L.A. journalist and musician Solvej Schou, reverberating with the grief, confusion and sadness she felt while living in Williamsburg, New York. The Manhattan skyline was clear. I could see the Empire State Building

Hi everyone, please share this, and alert friends in #Idaho, #Montana and surrounding states. My friend/bandmate Chelsea's 17-year-old sister Ashley Speer has now been missing a week.

Poll ahead of Monday's presidential debate

Please check out my new Associated Press story on ceramic artists riding a design trend toward handcrafted, small scale pottery pieces. Mugs, vessels, nesting bowls. 
Lisa Jones founded her ceramics company, Pigeon Toe, eight years ago with an emphasis on petite pottery pieces like her three-legged “tripot” bowls and teensy stacking bowls.
