Carpe diem. You only live once. Seize the Day. And so on. These are all phrases that can sound so trite. But guess what. That moment does indeed pass. What do you want to do about it? Watch the ship pass you by, while the bird flies away […]
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.
Summer is coming, supposedly. We just celebrated Memorial Day and barbeque parties have already begun to fill the suburban landscape. We were supposed to have a heat wave this week in New York (you know three days in a row of 90 degree weather) but that may have […]
