Life in the Midst of Death in the Midst of Life

    This morning, I woke up, grateful to have woken up. Nothing new, since I do that each day. Today has a different feel to it for many reasons. The first is that it is my one year cardio-versary, […]

My To-Do List

Writing this the night before heading southward with my friends Barb and Glenn to Hilton Head, SC for a week of fun in the sun. It is the first long vacation I have had in more than a decade. They […]

Filling the Well

My friend Cass Forkin is a devout Catholic who doesn’t merely pray. She walks the talk. Cass is the founder and director of The Twilight Wish Foundation that grants wishes for seniors. She is also, like me, a miracle manna-fester and […]

The Event Will Go As The Event Will Go

  Rolling the clock back to the spring of 2005 and I find myself in the 5th floor walk up apartment in Manhattan of Reid Mihalko and Marcia Baczynski. Surrounded by blankets, pillows and pj clad strangers, save my brave friend […]

For Our Own Good

Writing this from my cozy bed, after an ordeal in the wee hours of this morning, that could have been prevented by listening to my wise mind, instead of my “I want that yummy and decadent treat, because it has […]

Leap of Faith in the Face of Doubt

In the past few months, I have become increasingly aware of the power of spiritual practice to keep the rudder on my ‘ship of dreams’ guiding me steady on, so that I don’t run it ashore. Just when I think […]

Loving and Letting Go

As it always does, the Universe brings me messages when I most need them and least want them. I imagine it is so for you as well. Yesterday I was writing an article for my full time job with the […]

Bucket List

For the Highest Good

Every day, people turn their minds and hearts to prayer for themselves and others. Regardless of spiritual orientation or faith tradition, it becomes a lifeline to the God of their understanding. We humans are born, live, have experiences; some joyful, […]

Depth Perception

  Like many of us, I exist on the surface of life at times. Skating on the frozen pond, yet knowing that beneath the shiny façade of the ice lies fathom deep waters. I try not to think about it, since […]

Thank You for Being A Friend

Filled with gratitude this morning for one of the greatest gifts in this or any lifetime…..friendship. I have always been blessed with sweet and supportive souls who mostly get my quirky ways of being and my sometimes outrageous and colorful […]

One Blessed Life

I am a woman who is amply aware of her blessings. I count them multiple times a day, sometimes with each breath. I had a full, rich day today, that began with meeting a new friend at a local coffee […]

True Colors

I saw a post on Facebook this morning: “If someone shows you their true colors, don’t try to repaint them.” This lesson has long been with me. It has been at the core of many co-dependent and dysfunctional relationships/friendships throughout […]

Uncovering My Heart

  I attended a workshop this afternoon that was facilitated by an old friend that I had not actually met hug to hug until today. Her name is Ambika Devi, author of the cosmic journey called Lilith which combines historical teachings, powerful […]

Life Smoothie

In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, […]

For Me

I had a revelationary thought today as I recognized that for much of my adult life, I have done things for the benefit of others first and foremost, or to please someone so as to gain or not lose love […]

56 Blissings

Tomorrow is my 56th birthday. Never in a million years, would I have imagined a life as mine is now…and yet, I obviously co-created it with the Divine. S/he and I have all kinds of conversations thinking up sometimes absurd […]

Turn Your Mess Into Your Message

Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing […]

Invulnerable and Invincible?

  Yesterday, in the midst of a radio interview with Kerri Kannan,  I was asked a question about vulnerability. It is a topic that has become as familiar as the fingers typing these words. I was awakened to it when […]

Perfectionista

I am coming to recognize another persona that I am calling ‘Perfectionista’.  She is polished and professional, sweet, kind and caring, loving and compassionate, creative and fun, positive and intuitive, reliable and  responsible, intelligent and articulate. So, you might ask, “What’s wrong with […]

Hurt People Hurt People?

Lately, I have been pondering this conundrum: Why do people make violence acceptable? I see so many photos and videos of people hurting animals and people, images of abuse that whoever shot the films somehow think is cool. I understand […]

All of It

Strangels

Spread It Around

It doesn’t take much for me to cry over mushy stories and this one in particular because the main characters named Shirley and Moe could have easily been Selma and Moish who were my parents. Although Shirley, the 100 year […]

The One

  When I saw this meme shortly after awakening this morning, I came smack dab up against all of the expectations I have for myself. Many’s the day when I have held the mirror to my face and fully claimed […]

Making The Ordinary Come Alive

  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own […]

Is It In The DNA?

  I awoke early this morning after being in bed most of the day yesterday with the “I don’t feel like getting out of my pj’s chant (not blues:)” rambling through my brain. On top of that, I was experiencing […]

Making Time For What Matters Most

I remember seeing another poster with a similar idea that had on it the names of famous inventors, proclaiming that each of them had the same 24 hours that were granted to everyone. The difference was all in how they […]

Heart Tickler

A few weeks ago, I was sitting in a circle of soul friends who were celebrating my friend Janet Berkowitz’s birthday. This 50-something kid in a grown up body is colorfully creative and vibrant. I have known her since the […]

Locket

  As a double nickels (55 year old) menopausal woman, I have sometimes fallen prey to the memory blips and brain freezes that may characterize this stage of life. In the past, I had believed it was mythical. After all, […]

Love Everybody

What if video cameras could be used to eaves-watch and record not just crimes, but acts of love and kindness?  Imagine what they would see with their ‘electric eyes’. I had the delight of waking up to a video this […]

On My Way

  A metaphor for life that I contemplate often is what I call The Hansel and Gretel Breadcrumb Trail. I gaze over my shoulder and see where the little crumbles have landed and follow them backward to take note of the […]

World Smile Day

Behind the Mask

Several years ago, I attended a Goddess Retreat that honored the Divine Feminine aspects of ourselves. One of the activities was body casting and we could choose the ‘parts’ we wanted to keep around for posterity. I had been at two […]

Love Prevails

Apply Within

What if you saw this classified ad in your local paper this morning, as you drank your coffee, tea, chai, juice or in my case- fruit and veggie smoothie? Would your heart leap with delight because you were just waiting […]

Living Legacy-Zach Sobiech

There are some moments  when the petty, day to day annoyances melt away in the face of the fireball sun realization that life is fleeting, experiences are transient and people are on loan to us. Last night, when I watched […]

When Words Aren’t Enough

We human beings are more than our minds, thoughts and feelings. Our bodies are repositories for our pasts; both pain and pleasure reside as cellular memory. For some, talk therapy is sufficient to work out challenges and traumas. For others, […]

The Miracle of Love

  I saw this video, called The Miracle of Love this morning by one of my favorite musical divas; Annie Lennox. When I get my hair cut, I often ask for it be styled like hers, since it has a wild […]

Friendship Day

                                                       The way I see it, everyday is Friendship Day, but in 1935, the U.S. Congress saw fit to declare it a national holiday on the first Sunday in August. In 1997, the United Nations named Winnie – […]

One Of The Cool Kids

                                                                                                                     What amazes me is how my perception of myself can be so dramatically different from those of others throughout my life.
