My Childhood Hero

Posted in Art, celebrity, Hero, Legendary, Life, New York City, Performance, women by Lori E. Seid on 26 September 2013

for as long as i can remember I have been a pop-culture hag.

i have more useless crap in my headbut it’s what i do…it’s who i am.

One of the biggest influences on my life started early – i read Liz Smith’s column everyday and yes it was gossipbut long before the nasty snarky horrible abusive crap published non stop today.

Because of Liz Smith I developed a love for show business and a curiosity for what happened behind the scene.

Last night I got to tell her  that. It made us both very happy.

Posted in family, Holiday, Kindness, Life, Love, Mother Nature, Truth, women, World by Lori E. Seid on 12 May 2013

selmaI was always so bad about mailing the cards on time and the phone call at the right time

 Self -made Hallmark Holiday I would always say to justify my tardiness

Anyway I’m more the –

I saw this and it made me think of you so Happy Random Every Day

And even though

Selma is from that generation that needs the card on time to have something to show the neighbors

And would

Get hurt & pissed off at me, she loved and supported who I am as best she could my entire life.

And now,

She no longer really knows one day from the next

And so

Happy Random Every Day has become the fabulous way of our lives together.

But in her honor,

Of what was and still is important so she feels the love and support she always gave me

With card and flowers in hand and from deep in my heart;

Happy Mother’s Day My Dear Mom

My love for you is more than you could ever understand but I’ll always do my best for you to know it

Love, LES


Happy Mother’s Day to ALL!

Male, female, gay, straight, undefined, human or critter


We are all, in some way, in some how

A mother to somebody.

Love, Lori and Squid E. Seid
