Often in life, the best experiences are often unplanned and unexpected. When you just live your life, let go of the rules and expectations, that is when life is at its best. This past October was no exception to the rule. As my 48th birthday was rapidly approaching, I made a conscious decision to just live and let go. I was asked if I wanted a dinner party, did I want to go out to a club, and I declined pretty much everything that was offered to me. I just wanted to live and let go, and see what happens……

What do you do, when you find out, that the person you are in love with is getting married to someone else?

I loved them as a married couple, simply organically beautiful. “They have so much love for each other,” Zoë Kravitz said of Lenny Kravitz, Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa (Lisa Bonet’s husband), “It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close. My dad and my step-dad get along really well, and my dad loves and is close with my brother [Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa] and sister [Lola Iolani Momoa].” I have a 16 year old daughter and maintain a close relationship with…
