Sundays were a very special day growing up in my household. It was a day where I got to play board games with my mom and we sang and danced together. There were no cell phone or iPad application games that we individually played for hours on end. […]
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.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
I believe in ghosts. I also believe that mental states are probably not separable from physical states. There indeed are ghosts in the machine. I just didn’t think they would exist in my machine. Better yet, my phone and computer. I just recently got a new phone. Before […]
We are fully in autumn now. The leaves are falling and with it perhaps the national IQ as well, along with the collective sense of dignity. Bill Maher put out a new rule last week about the state of American attire in the public sphere. We are a […]

Saying it has been a wacky week is indeed a gross understatement. Politicians have become even more unhinged, the media more self-serving and our friends in the animal kingdom have gone on a terror binge. Rage is the latest craze. Let the wacky madness begin. 1. Hornets […]
When I was younger, I was a storytelling champion. I loved imagining and constructing new worlds, in part because I was an only child. I also needed an escape from my “Bronx is burning” surroundings. One special Christmas, my aunt gave me a typewriter and I joyfully wrote […]
