If I told you how long it took me to record, edit and produce this lil’ rinky dink intro thing, I’m not sure whether you’d laugh at me, or cry with me. It hasn’t helped that I’ve been hot and clammy much of the week, in my balmy Brooklyn apartment, cursing at the screen. The issue: sound. I have yet... Read More

Taxes Schmaxes: Our wee lil problem with avoidance

99moreproblems
This year I got one of those hold-your-breath pieces of mail from the IRS. I do my own taxes on Turbotax, so I’m always a little trepidatious of the mailbox in the weeks that follow tax day.

I have so much to say about this Unmistakable Creative conversation with Ros Zander, but I’m going to wait to expand until I read her new book Pathways to Possibilities: Transforming our relationships with ourselves, each other and the world. I am constantly reminding myself, clients, family, friends, whoever will listen that we choose our reality. There is ALWAYS another way... Read More

mariannequote
What if I told you depression is not a chemical condition, it’s a spiritual one? These sentiments, I’ve felt for some time, were shared by Marianne Williamson in last night’s talk, Tears to Triumph at the Marble Collegiate Church here in NYC. With a whole heck of a lot more street cred, I was thrilled to hear her say many... Read More
