With Liberty and Chocolate for All…

I was in a horrible mood today. Something I had counted on – a revenue generating event – was “taken away from me”. That loss of income, while not that significant in size, was a real blow to the ego and the pocketbook. It filled me with indignant rage – way over the...

Setting the Bar High

I didn't know her, yet I feel like I knew her. I didn't share her politics, yet I admired her convictions. She was strong, she was feisty, she was funny and she was a Superbwoman. Today as I was reading yet another article about Barbara Bush, I found myself crying. I...

You Being You Lets Me Be Me

My dear friend Gabrielle wrote on my Facebook page recently the most lovely compliment: "One of the things I love about you is we bloom around you; we love ourselves - and have the most fun being who we are in your presence." Honestly, I just swooned at that one! It...

Why Not?

There were a few things about me in my 20s that remain true today: I think outside the box and am a visionary I hate paperwork This presented a unique situation for me as I started my corporate career at IBM. I entered that world in a very unconventional way, starting...

The Give and Take of Love

I am in a relationship with a man who loves me unconditionally. Yeah, it sucks. Oh, I am not saying it’s a bad relationship or that I don’t enjoy being adored….most of the time. But there are times when I question his judgment. After all, what have I done to deserve...

Power, Anxiety and the Need for Control

Part of the reason I like to hit the snooze button in the morning is the feeling of power over this “thing”: I’m not starting my day being told what to do. The other reasons are that morning sleep seems so much more satisfying, and my bed is especially cozy then. But...
