I have a dress in my closet that was a ginormous bargain. It bought it in a trendy district and was elated upon finding it. For it was perfect. It embodied a point in time. It embodied a commitment to an idea. It fit me smoothly despite it […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.

Her eyes were tired and blurry. But she really wanted to finish her evening reading. It was important to her to read as much of she could to be prepared for tomorrow. To be alert, ironically enough, for what hardship the day was bound to bring. She grabbed […]
I used to live near ground zero. I would pass it everyday on my way to work. I’d always take a second to think of life, happiness and the sadness of what happened that day. I know people who lost a loved one there that day 18 years […]

A little over 11 years ago, I was on a day-long ferry trip from one Greek island to another. Ferry rides tend to be hit and miss for me. But that day was a good one despite having the beginnings of morning sickness. A state of being that […]
Crooked frames. Semi-empty shelves. Longing for pickles and barns. That was life. Or so she was told. She was advised to accept things as they are and will be. No need to change things outside of her control. Thing is, according to all those around her nothing was […]
