I no longer spend my days thinking what you may possibly think of me. I have evolved this year in ways I never knew possible. I’m proud of this growth. I’m proud to give my self the gift of forgiveness. The gift of YESTERDAY. The gift of letting go, but learning at the same time. […]
This last year had only one event, Jacob’s fight with cancer. How did it affect me? It made me question everything I’ve ever known. Even the “knowns” like the sky is up and the floor is down felt questionable. Right versus wrong felt uncertain. Even my own identity I was unclear about. Was I good? […]
I welcome you to this journey. 10 days. 10 questions. https://www.doyou10q.com/ I began my journey today. I’ve done this ritual for the past 8 years. It is a true gift to myself having this log. Please join me in this reflective process as we usher in a new year.
Can it really be real? How can one year be so different? How can the world change so drastically in 365 days? But it is very real. And while I’m sure there is a lot to complain about, this year has been quite a ride, there is a lot to celebrate too. A lot of […]
I think we all should rise. I’m going to start a slow clap. One of those dramatic ones. Or maybe this is more appropriate Because there has been NO lack of effort here. Standing ovation is in order! As you can say a lot of things, but one thing I think we all agree on here. […]
Last year around this time I recall attempting to transform our hospital room into a school. I remember trying in desperation to fill the void of his deep sense of loss of not returning to school with his friends by putting on the “mom show.” BUT NOT THIS YEAR! Had to share some pics!
November Rain. As we spent these last days as a nation weathering storms, I continue to brace for the “big one.” The big one with countless deaths, one being our democracy. You know…November rain. Election time. There are signs that the rain is coming even sooner than anticipated. Did you hear the thunder as storm […]
There is a girl. Her name is June and Jacob is “in love.” It is a true summer love. Two “neighborhood” kids meeting up at the pool by day and running in the grass playing tag by night. June lives about 10 boats down from us here in Montauk and everyday Jacob makes his way […]
It started with hair for me. I wanted to be blonde. And at age 8 I began my blonde journey. Just two hours and bam, blonde. Mission accomplished. And while I’m sure Barbie and the Norwegian blonde blue-eyed descendants that made up the majority of my 2nd grade Minnesotan classroom played a role, there was another […]
The collapse of the institution, the rise of the individual. The workplace has slowly been morphing to meet the 21st century economy, an economy of AI and tech that forces us to reimagine the how and needs of what we call “work.” We see it everywhere. The disruption of the real estate business model with […]
