I began this post en route back from the International CES in Las Vegas where I walked the floors of the North, South and Central Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Every January, spectators from every continent come to demonstrate and spectate…and, hey it’s Vegas, so they also celebrate. I was pretty surprised this … Continue reading Tech Gift Ideas Found At CES
In my day I begged my mother for a Trapper Keeper…anyone else remember those? Mine had kittens on them — similar to the image below with the puppies but with, well kittens) — and I LOVED it. Today middle schoolers at my daughters school are encouraged to have laptops, that’s right laptops and both my … Continue reading Gifts for Back to School II: Tech Gear
I have a difficult confession to make. One I am ashamed about. But one that I think is important. I have been on multiple sides of the bullying issue.
I’ve never been a fan of round numbers. They feel too perfect, almost fake. And even though last year was a perfectly round number of a birthday, it came after a less-than-perfect year. I’ve come to believe all things balance out if you give it enough time, nothing stays the same and I’ve come to … Continue reading Rounding out my year: 2016 version update

It becomes overwhelming and I don’t know where to start. Much has happened already this year, some I have shared and … Continue reading Looking Back on Summer: Baseball, Camp, Forgiveness and Faith
Only two days into 2014, and I was already feeling anxious. For the last five years, January always starts with a business trip: CES in Las Vegas. The new variable: this is the first year that I am playing a pretty serious chess match with a virus of some sort. This freaks me out to no … Continue reading Subway Riding: Gratitude and Joy
In January all I want to do is get in front of a warm fire, cuddle up to my one-and-only, whip out the Smores accoutrements and hibernate. My favorite gift idea to give and get this time of year (aside from Smores) is snuggly knitwear that will keep old-man winter away, even when a fireplace … Continue reading Gifts To Keep Cozy: Winter Knits
I don’t quite get the idea of having a cyber-boyfriend or girlfriend. How do you “date” or have a romantic relationship with someone who you don’t physically see in person? Full disclosure, I also don’t fully trust the process of online dating for myself, but I never had to either… filtering and select a potential … Continue reading Cyber Romance: Gift Ideas For A Virtual Boyfriend or Girlfriend
Art isn’t easy Cue Stephen Sondheim… But seriously, art isn’t easy or everybody would do it. For me, it’s been about making mistakes, facing my fears, bearing my soul, finding my truth, discovering what’s holds me back, and, slowly, becoming free.
