  This weekend, I had the ultimate joy of officiating at the wedding of a young cousin as he married the love of his life whom he had met 9 years earlier in the New Jersey shore town of Wildwood. […]



  On the eve of Independence Day here in the U.S., I am pondering just what it means to enjoy freedom. I could wax philosophical and political about what our Founding Fathers might have been thinking when they signed that […]


Hopscotch In The Alley

Today is my cousin Jody Rosenblum’s birthday. Dubbing herself my “older and wiser cousin” many years ago, she has been my go-to girl for all manner of adolescent and adult angsts. Her guidance is always grounded, solid, spiritual and often tinged […]


Roots Go Deep

Today I experienced an inevitable life event; the funeral of a dear cousin whose mother and my grandmother were sisters; two of the thirteen Bernstein siblings who grew up in Philadelphia in the last century. Ron and my mother were […]

  My ever inspirational friend Molly Nece (a.k.a. Molly Sunshine) offered this quote: “Get out and happen to life. Don’t let life happen to you! “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back […]

What Wisdom Dictates

  A few years ago, through the phenom of Facebook, numerous high school classmates re-entered my life. I attended Willingboro High School in the South Jersey suburb of Willingboro which was one of the original Levittown communities (the others are […]

Being In The Flow of Life
Consider your life as it is right now.  Is it filled to overflowing with all that you desire, or does it feel dry and lacking in pizazz and juice? Take a moment to do an inventory of what you have going for you. Do you have a place to live ...
