Happy 40th Anniversary to Us!

This coming Monday marks 40 years since I married the man of my dreams.  A lifetime ago and yet it seems like just yesterday.  There aren’t enough words in any language to describe how grateful, happy and joyous I feel.  We married very young, yes, but somehow, we’ve managed to grow, sometimes apart, but mostly...

The Shingles Vaccine and Reflections on Life

Last week, despite my best intentions and professional drive to meet a deadline, I just couldn’t make it.  Felled by side effects from the second of two shingles vaccines, I lay on the couch with fever, chills, aches, headache, fatigue and a very sore shoulder.  Sounds delightful, no?  Seriously, this is the first time I’ve...

Can Honest Friendship Save the World?

Recently my best friend recommended a podcast to me called, “Call Your Girlfriend.”  It is hosted by two millennial women who are close friends and live on opposite sides of the country.  Their topics are engaging and hip, very conversational and their chemistry is fun.  I enjoy listening from the vantage point of someone old...

In my Jewish tradition, it’s... Continue Reading →

A Precious Gift

This week I was given a gift.  It came from an obvious place, but is nonetheless precious.  You see, the last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling a bit down.  Not seriously depressed, just blah.  I guess if I were writing a country song I’d say I’ve had the blues.  Perhaps my mood mirrors the...

How to Find the Magic In You

I restarted this blog for several reasons.  The obvious one is that I love to write.  When I sit down at my computer and get started, I feel calm and yet excited.  It’s an actual physical sensation of pleasure and I feel my brain, which is often swirling with thoughts and feelings, become organized.  Whatever...

Welcome to the Inside of my Brain

This past week has been a strange one.  Lots of mainly mundane transitions, but transitions nonetheless.  I’ve also started educating myself on this blogging artform and while it’s always invigorating to learn new things, I find my thoughts spinning.  And to top it all off, I’m waiting anxiously for news from my daughter about a...
