Questions For The Angels

  On my way home from the gym tonight, I was listening to David Dye on Live At The World Cafe interviewing Paul Simon about his most recent release called So Beautiful Or So What?  Paul’s interesting take was that […]

Light As A Feather

  On Friday night, I joined a group of 50-something women that refer to ourselves Yoga Chicks, at the sweet little haven of a studio called Anahata Yoga in Harleysville, PA. The sanskrit word anahata is the name for the […]

Angels In Our Midst

                                     When you hear the word ‘angel’, what image comes to mind?  Likely that of a glowing, winged being, adrift on a cloud, playing a heavenly harp or singing in a celestial choir. Not quite ‘real’, nebulous, the stuff of […]

Musitarian

I've been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years afterward,  so I had some time with them and with my grandmother as an 'only child'

Do Overs
As Jews all over the world approach the High Holy Days, we are called upon to face ourselves in a metaphorical mirror and take stock of our lives in the past year. The image isn't always pretty, but it is real.  As I rewind the clock to September, 2013, I witness a woman whose life was on auto pi
