Everything happens for a reason. Everything. When Eve Pell contacted me about her new book, Love Again, the same day that Lynn Brown Rosenberg wrote to me about her book, My Sexual Awakening at 70, I wanted this month's salon to focus on our evolving mojo and love lives... with Marilu I figured we'd stretch the wheelhouse to include our changing minds, as her latest book is about sharpening memory. When Marilu had to postpone till April, I first wanted to leave things as they were with Eve, Lynn, Kate, me and youes, focusing on our sex.., that's right... then I thought I'd move Rex Smith, who's coming in April to March, cause lord knows he's sexy! Marilu said, "No! Have us together. We did Annie Get Your Gun" together and we'll give you a great show." Ok. Now what?!? I went back to Anson Williams who said he'd come another month... he had scheduling issues and told me he'd let me know today. Meanwhile I contacted no less than a dozen, more, who've I've been chasing. None were available... but. the good news.... after 6 years... 6! Adam Arkin said he'll come, before our 10th anniversary... I shan't let him wait that long. Chris Lemmon, maybe the sweetest man ever, currently doing his "Twist of Lemmon" in the OC (about his dad, Jack) said he'll bring a slice of it to us, when he's back in town. Peter Tolan is running a room, a new show he's co-producing with George Clooney... but he's trying to figure out how to make it work... a bunch of peoples ignored me... and then tonight, Anson said he couldn't make it work. Ouch. He texted back and offered to contact Jennifer Edwards, (Heidi, That's Life, SOB), who has a new book out. He raved about Jennifer. I researched the book, When Angels Cry. A novel. We don't do novel. Then I read the synopsis, this contained within... "Amid a great awakening, Sarah also comes to terms with being a sexually active middle-aged woman, and begins to accept sex again..." Hello, is this not HEAVEN made. And, Jennifer said, YES! So, wominz, sex it shall be. Sex, sex, and more sex. Bring it. Evites going out in the morrow. SAVE THE FUCKING DATE, Tues, March 31st, 11 am. Can't wait. I'm writing a new piece for it. Bring your sexy, bitches!

The first number from Hello Dolly that  I saw Samantha sing, from the wings... I sobbed like an idiot. This So Long Dearie, fittingly, from closing night. I couldn't love this more.

When bad news turns good... just got word from Anson Williams that he regrettably has to cancel and will reschedule. After I came to, I called Larry Miller, who I've been trying to book for three years... and he... miraculously was available and said... YES! The man Jerry Seinfeld said "is, was and will always be the funniest guy I know," is coming to save the day... and my ass. Larry Miller... Mr. Pretty Woman, Mr. 10 Things I Hate About You, Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Mr, Best in Show, Mr. A Mighty Wind, Mr. Runaway Bride... to name but a very few... the man has four new movies in the can about to drop. Did I mention that he's maybe the nicest and most gracious guy on the planet?!? Yeah. that too. It's gonna be a raucous good time. ‪#‎blessed‬

I've been sober for 12 plus years. I've been single for four and a half. The last time I slept in the warm embrace of a man was... well... let's just say it was two presidents ago. And one had a double term. When you do the math, it's a pretty shitty...

A week from today... Tues, March 31st, we'll be hearing about, and discussing, our evolving sexuality. Shuddup, silly boys! Kathrin Shorr will be singing it, Lynn Brown Rosenberg, Jennifer Edwards and Eve Pell will be reading their words. We'll all be talkin'. Eve will also shed light on how she scored the much sought after, elusive success, with her #4 of all time NewYork Times Modern Love column.

I'm already tingling.

No longer recognizing the girl in the mirror, desperate to regain the figure I'd complained about for years, I was certain the Wii Fit would be my salvation....

It ain't no rainy day (here) but it 'tis Monday. Something wonderful to wake up to... just for you. Is too! Don't be cynical. I loves you.

Paul Williams​ and Tracey Jackson, when they came to call in support of their bestseller, Gratitude and Trust... and, I've never heard a more moving rendition of "Rainy Days and Mondays." And I love The Carpenter's.
