Who’s in Your Head?

Let’s face it, we all have demons. Mine always choose the worst time to enter my consciousness: sometime around 2:00 to 4:00 a.m. Between having to get up to pee numerous times and these visitors, I get out of bed exhausted. These are people that were either a part of my past or live among… Continue reading Who’s in Your Head?

Why Winning Might Not Be So Important

Just about everyone I know is living through relationship difficulties during this divisive time in our country’s history. In my house any conversation was fair game at the dinner table.

Living Abroad — Reblog w/Updates

A bit about “my truth” as well. I bought this authentic Gabbeh (Turkey) rug on the Facebook Marketplace this week. I made a little adventure out of retrieving it.

The Ups and Downs of My Relationship With Food

Apparently, one of the by-products of quarantine is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Out of nowhere you can become all weepy or conversely, elated. This week I was sitting… Continue reading The Ups and Downs of My Relationship With Food

Right Where I am Supposed to Be

Accept, Adjust and Adapt There have been many life lessons learned over the past couple of months. I can’t speak for those of us who were/are in quarantine with others and in fact, I cannot speak for those spending this time alone; I can only speak for myself. Clearly, this is and has been a… Continue reading Right Where I am Supposed to Be

Too shy to be on stage, but happy to watch and dream. ​​”I got a feeling there’s a miracle due gonna come true, coming to me. Could it be? Yes it could. Something’s coming. Something good, if I can wait.” – West Side Story I was watching an interview with Dame Judi Dench, an actor… Continue reading Growing Up With Broadway
