The other day I jokingly tried to bribe my son with $100 to eat something new. It was spicy, hot Korean cauliflower bites. But he was not having it. Literally. Could not convince him in any way. I lamented to him that back in the day (when he […]
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.
They did it. They finally did it. A grand sense of relief. A weight lifted off of her shoulders. A movement forward. A stop to the mental hemorrhage. Now their lives could truly begin. Or so it felt. Everything had been in stasis. Or so it had seemed. […]
At times, after a challenging day at school, we tell my son that life is not fair. He hates remote learning and doesn’t understand why his teachers have yet to master the technology. He even takes it personally. Which, of course, he shouldn’t. But I have digressed a […]

When the television show the Flash first came, I loved it. Brought new energy. New story lines with good arcs. A surprise villain. A good recipe for a new show in a franchise. It has not outlasted its companion shows (other then DC Legends) but I barely recognize […]
Let me state from the outset. I can cook. I can follow a recipe. I can improvise a bit. I just choose to not cook these days. Or rather it’s a bit hard to in my NYC apartment and I don’t push it. Now, with that out of […]
” The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else.” E.E. Cummings I’m not your savior I’m not an angel I’m not the keeper of your secrets I’m not your doormat I’m not the Berlin Wall I’m […]
