On Long Island, there’s a water park called Splish Splash. It opened in 1991. It’s way out east. You can see the tallest slides from the highway as you drive by. During elementary school years, we went to Splish Splash on field trips through the Summer Recreation program, a day camp through our school district.… Continue reading Splash On…
I call Peanut my son but it’s no secret that we aren’t the same species. In being different species, we have different needs. His diet should be 80% grass hay; mine should be 0% hay. He should have unlimited access to hay. I also have unlimited access to hay, but it’s mostly in my shoes… Continue reading Hungry?
On this, the eve of the two year anniversary of my dear friend's passing, I'm re-posting the story I wrote about her, about us, the day after she left this mortal coil. Before you read this, please call or text that one person you've been meaning to reach out to. Take that time. Even if… Continue reading Two Years Gone
Sunday morning. I’ve been out as a morning person for quite some time now. Even the word morning sends a tingle through me. Know thyself and embrace those strengths. Just before these manicured fingers began to dance across the keyboard, I was listening to a podcast recorded by my teacher Gabrielle Bernstein, available through her… Continue reading Vortex of Appreciation

For every ounce Out There, Open and Tell It Like It Is that I am, she is Reserved, Private and Keep It to Yourself in counterbalance. I take our new-found friendship not only as a treasure but… Continue reading I’m Telling

In pure irony, the notes I prepared for this talk look like a scrambled ramble of ideas. The organizer appears messy but gets it all done. Here are some gems from my… Continue reading Big Picture Master
When I was an undergraduate student, I watched “Sex & The City” on a perpetual loop. No matter what I was reading or writing, no matter who was visiting my dorm room or apartment, those DVDs were on repeat. I, of course, had my favorite seasons (2 and 3) and my favorite episodes (“Are We… Continue reading An Interesting Benchmark
Still trying to get things back together here at headquarters... So enjoy a throwback post from this time last year... How?
In late June 2014, I wrote a note in my phone of three simple “I am” statements to set the tone for my summer. Pushing aside the millions of things to get done and ways to make two months off from the day job count, I set these “I am” statements at the core of… Continue reading Retreat Yourself
For those who’ve been following the tale: I didn’t finish the book before book club, but the 200 pages I read were more enjoyable than I thought they were going to be. Just another lesson in being open, in saying “Yes!” to what presents itself. I never would have picked up that particular book, but… Continue reading Yes
