Happy first day of spring! To celebrate the vernal equinox, try to get outside, breathe, be creative if you have that in you, clean, move, look at the sky, trees and plants in all of their twisty, strange and beautiful configurations, be grateful. Or in the words of Walt Whitman:

Signs the mayoral election here in Pasadena, Calif. is heating up. 1) I had a dream the other night I was running for mayor, complete with a slogan and a wide-eyed election team (channeling "Veep," "Borgen," "House of Cards"). 2) A deluge of sharp campaign materials on our doorstep (see below), in my email inbox and by voicemail.

Ahead of this Sunday's International Women's Day, such respect and admiration for Afghan artist and activist Kubra Khademi, who wore a suit of armor on the streets of Kabul as part of a performance piece to protest widespread harassment of women. She's now in hiding. Thank you to AP for reporting about this. Art, expression, bravery can't and shouldn't be ignored.

My favorite time to hike is early spring, before the demon heat of summer in Pasadena, Calif. sets in. Yesterday, a 10 mile, four hour hike to Inspiration Point, above Echo Mountain, in the San Gabriel Mountains. Fog, wildflowers, 2,700 feet elevation gain.

In honor of International Women's Day (Month, Year, Infinity), I celebrate my late grandmothers. My mom's mom, a Polish-Jewish Holocaust survivor and immigrant to the U.S. whose steel chutzpah emboldened everyone around her. My dad's mom, a smart, strong and wise Danish doctor who also raised five kids. I think of them today, and women and girls all over the world capable of so much, no matter the odds.

This news makes me very happy. Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, one of my favorite singer, songwriter and guitarists of all time, and a huge influence on my own music, is coming out with a memoir. Interviewing her years ago = something I checked off my life wish list. Can't wait to read her book.

The Pretenders singer’s memoir will be published by Doubleday in September.
