Where To Go Next?

March 5, 2018

I’m not an easy traveller. In part, it’s the nester in me. I’m also a lousy sleeper, something even harder to do on the road. On a recent trip to Florida, within minutes of being inside the hotel room, I unpacked the suitcase, and put my book on the table beside the bed, replicating its place at home. On the plus side of being single is getting to decide on excursions without compromise. But do you travel alone, and if not, who goes with you? I’d love to hear about your next journey?

Tampa Bound

March 1, 2018

I’m off to Tampa, where I’ve been invited to be part of a small working group of Coaches convening to discuss best practices. For the last 10 days in L.A. the temperature has been hovering in an unseasonably low to mid 50’s and (though I never thought I’d say this) I’m looking forward to balmier Florida weather. Bags packed and ready for adventure.

True Grit

February 28, 2018

One of my clients was telling me about his aging mother, who at 87 is unstoppable. This is despite having macular degeneration, an eye disease which has left her practically blind. At his house for a recent visit, she insisted on making him an apple pie, and as hard as that task is to imagine of a woman who can’t see, her top crust was latticed. #MindBlown

Change Agent

A few weeks ago, I looked at the motley configuration of hangers in my closet, and decided to mini-splurge on a complete set that matches. On Sunday, I rehung all my clothes, and giddily tossed the hangers in the trash (most of which I’ve had for decades). I realize this is a small tweak in the overall scheme of life, but it was very satisfying. What’s your quick fix?

Out and About

February 22, 2018

Yesterday, I was speaking on the phone to a married friend with whom I hadn’t connected in a long time. After catching up on the essentials, he asked, “how’s your social life?” The question caught me off guard. Is he asking me if I’m dating anyone and short of that, does it mean my social life’s a bust. After a long pause, I said: “… uh, it’s great!”

This past Saturday, I saw Black Panther, and yes, it’s as good as the hype. Don’t miss it!

A friend is planning on getting a procedure to tighten the skin around her neck and eyes. This is a common occurrence here in L.A. When she told me about it, I glanced at my puckered neck and thought, hmmm…. is this something I would spend money on. How about you?
