To the Future

Most of the notices we are seeing now remind us to be thankful for all that we have and certainly we do have great abundance. A frequent saying I have been using lately is a reminder that most of my problems are definitely “first world problems.” Waiting in long lines to make purchases, an order not arriving on time, not…

Letting Go

In preparing for my move to a new home, I discovered that in addition to the normal anxiety, excitement, anticipation, and longing for peace and being settled, there was also the need to let go. To let go of things I never anticipated leaving behind and to things far less tangible as well.  Moving into a home with a dramatically…

My Brother-in-Law Died

My beautiful sister who has spent the past 30 years alongside her husband has lost him, and the world has lost a man of amazing humor, goodness, and grace.

A Smorgasbord Week

This is one of those weeks where life is a smorgasbord of activities. Some have been incredibly sad, some wonderfully exciting, others simply demanding so much time and creativity, and thankfully also those moments that are pure bliss.

Transitioning With the Old and the New

I am beginning a 10-month program for Women in Transition next week and am thrilled at the variety of specialties and approaches to life for each of the women involved. It reminds me that business is such a funny thing in so many ways. We each find our interest, our specialty, often in our 20’s and so frequently think this…

The Faces of Change

This past Wednesday I did something I have not done since Covid hit – over 2 ½ years ago. My God, 2 ½ years!!!!!  It feels like forever. Dramatic I know, but that is how it feels. I got on a train and went into NYC to meet with 3 wonderful friends. When I left the house, I thought I…
