HI, I'm Joce AUCOIN. writer, Creative & Digital media Consultant living In beautiful Ojai, California. 

 Right now I’m:

  • Petting all the dogs. I met one today. A French Bulldog named Vinnie. When I bent down to pet him and say hello, he put both paws on my knee, hoisting himself up to lick my face. What more does a person need in life?

  • Getting used to living in a small town where your kid goes to school with a kid whose parent’s own one of the best restaurants in town. A restaurant that makes a ceviche bloody mary. What? Yes. If you’re ever in Ventura, tell them I sent you.

  • Reading. Always reading. My stack includes The Soul’s Code by James Hillman and The Seasons of the Soul by Hermann Hesse, and Chicken Soup for the Soul. Just kidding on that last one. Felt like I needed to add a third “soul” book to my list.

  • Making a Top 10 songs of 2018 playlist which is currently 13 songs and counting (but who’s counting?). I’m a particular fan of Soccer Mommy “Your Dog” and Frank Ocean’s cover of “Moon River”. I’ll leave you to look those up on your service of preference. Do it!

  • Also making Christmas cards, apparently. Went to a little card making party the other night and impressed myself with this! Whadda you think?
