American psychologist Virginia Satir was quoted as saying, “We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” I completely agree.  So much so that I felt like writing this little ditty:   Space […]

Kebab and Hummus

To me there is nothing better than discovering a new restaurant, especially those hole-in-the-wall surprises that you would never think were good (or maybe you would think the opposite, that only holes-in-walls were good…I digress.)  Last week, I discovered such a gem just a 3-minute walk from my […]

A Lesson in Purple

Every night before Maya goes to bed, she brushes her teeth, runs outside to her bookshelves and picks a story to read. I’m beyond grateful she still enjoys this ritual, and as far as I’m concerned, it will continue for as long as she is willing. Last night, […]

Falling Slowly

Some songs haunt me…and it’s a good thing. The songs in the videos below are a few of them – from the movie (and now Broadway musical) Once. I saw the movie a few years ago and fell slowly. We saw the musical yesterday, and I fell again. Enjoy.  

Lay Your Hands On Me

Nope, not talking about the boys from Jersey. I’m talking about the mini-massages you get when you pay for a mani/pedi.  It’s not the whole shebang, but after a day of kids and meetings… a little sea salt scrub, cooling gel, and warmed lotion go a long way […]

Brain. Tired.

This morning, I left my apartment. I walked down the stairs, into the courtyard and realized my load felt a little light.  I had my tote bag with my lunch and my morning protein shake in my hand, but something was missing. Sigh…my purse. I kind of need […]

Zinnia, zinnia

Zinnias in Bloom

Nothing is more relaxing after a long day at work (and today will be a long one!) than going out onto my back patio to tend to my flowers. I just have a few pots, but they are the first flowers I’ve ever grown from seed and they […]

She looks so much like Maya it's trippy

If at first you don’t succeed…

As I’ve written here before, I tend to have anxiety.  Several things will help me deal with it, among them, exercise, quiet, and pharmaceuticals. The best remedy for me, the one that doesn’t just deal with the symptoms is meditation. And since my mini-me also seems to tend […]
