I had an eye-opening experience this past week. But let me give some context beforehand. Please note that weeks before I used to label these bits “digressions”. Now, this is context. I’m evolving in my descriptors. I like texting. I far prefer texting to talking on the phone. […]
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.
My mom loved pranking. For her, April Fool’s day was everyday. It may where I get my sense of whimsy and love of the absurd. Although, I am no fan of theatre of the absurd. Many, many years ago I saw the Ionescu play Rhinoceros and I felt […]
I think, but I cannot say, with any certainty, that at one point people felt that ethics and ethical behavior mattered. I’m sure I sound like a jaded, New Yorker. I am a New Yorker, afterall. But it may very well be that ethical behavior is on a […]
I love travel. I feel like I have not done enough of it. I have certainly traveled more than a large number of Americans but not nearly enough for my tastes. While I love travel, I am starting to despise more and more traveling by air. It is […]
She needed it desperately so. She needed to recharge her whimsy. Most people didn’t undetstand that. But here they did. Whimsy is what kept her going. She was rather low and could feel herself slipping away. Turning her into one of those staid office workers. And that just […]
It’s hard to believe. That time of the year has come back around. It is my baby’s birthday. He’s not a baby, really. But that is besides the point. Eleven years ago, he came into the world wide-eyed. I will never forget that face and those eyes. I […]
Here is the deal. I don’t cook. I used to. Many moons ago. I was good. I could be good again. I know how to follow recipes, I’m curious, and I know how to garnish. I made really great curries, chowder, stews, and empanadas. Saucy foods were my […]
I love collecting photographs, both mine and that of others, of wacky signs. I used to collect wacky news stories, as well, but it’s been a bit much these days. Tell me, what isn’t wacky in our everyday lives. I think many people have heard of the ice […]
First off, I didn’t technically miss my flight. I don’t believe I have ever missed a flight. And, I used to travel a lot for work. Often, I used to be on the road twice a month. And now, I have a lot of miles and perks. But […]
Many years ago, I happily visited Japan. It was an unbelievably awesome trip. Besides all the cultural aspects, I lost seven pounds on the trip. I walked everywhere for hours on end. I was ecstatic about it all. When we made our way to Kyoto I was enthralled […]
