Life is Short and Precious – So Keep it Sexy

I was talking to a very good friend about the State of the World; the fires, the hurricanes, the earthquakes, the violence. We spoke about the dire predictions for the various parts of the world; which coast is going to end up under water, and who’s going down in a deep freeze. Somehow, we were […]

Hear! Hear! Time to Pay Attention.

When I was much younger I liked to leave the details up to the Other Guy. Things like buying a car, buying a house or getting married. Part of it was sort of an attitude towards being a female and the time I grew up. A guy was expected to sweat the details. No need […]

You Know you Can – So Do It.

Good Morning, my Friends.  Yesterday, I had taken my son to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. Another parent came in with his two older kids. Our eyes met, and we smiled at each other. It was clear that he was enjoying his down time with his kids, like I was. We had a moment and […]

Eye of The Storm

Today is a little blog, a blip of a blog. I know we all have our high beams focused on Irma which is currently engulfing Florida. I’ve stayed pretty close to the TV this weekend, and imagine I will continue to throughout the day, as will many of you.  I don’t want to pull energy, […]


Good morning. I’ve said in my blog before that one of my favorite mantras is “You are Enough.” I love the words because we can be so hard on ourselves, we beat ourselves up constantly. We self-flagellate and betray our bodies, our hearts and our spirits by putting ourselves down. I say “You are Enough” […]


Here’s what I want to say today. Don’t skip the celebrations. Don’t skip the birthdays and the anniversaries. Especially with people you have history with, with people who know you. We get busy, we celebrate busy, we adore busy.  But busy is just that. Another four letter word. Busy is an excuse. Us carbon based […]

Where Is My Party that I don’t Want

Let me just start this by saying I don’t want anybody throwing me a surprise birthday party after they read this. I hate surprise parties, although I am always looking for one around my birthday. I am positive that someone will eventually throw me one, even though I don’t want it. This is some form […]

Right Here. Right Now.

Good Morning.  I have one thing to tell you today; You will never have any kind of lasting happiness unless you make living in the present moment your regular jam.  That is just the truth. If you aren’t looking at what is right in front of you right now, you’re missing out on the jewels […]

Love Letters

I am very concerned about the dark times we are in.  The whole world is experiencing deep turmoil and angst, we all know that and are getting pounded with as much news and information as we could possibly bear.  Maybe more than some of us can bear. We are reverting to some kind of primitive […]

Be The Helper

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” – Fred Rogers My kids and I have been watching the news like hawks.  My twenty-year old, Sam, knows the names of all […]
