We may have another snow forecast on the way, but I can feel spring beginning to rustle under the surface. Growing up in Louisiana there were two seasons, regular hot and humid and hurricane season. I've lived in Philadelphia now for over 25 years and I truly love watching how we have to adapt and...

Is it just me, or has this been a crazy, fast-paced year? So much has happened, but it doesn’t seem like there was enough time for all that happened to fit into it! My focus for the last few weeks of 2013, amid the bustle of the holidays, is to find some clarity in my own mind where I can let...

The biggest lie

The biggest lie

In the mornings I get two teenagers ready for school. Lately we've been listening to Elvis Duran, a NYC dj, and his crew of hilarious sidekicks. As a joke, he recently asked: "What is the biggest lie you're telling yourself?" Listeners called in crying. Not his intent. Something about this...

There’s No Place Like Home

Summer is the time of year for vacations.  Thoughts of running away to exotic places in search of the vacation of our dreams fill our minds.  I was recently searching the Internet to find the ideal vacation spot and was interrupted by a pecking sound at my office window.  Rather than allowing...

Give Life Your Full Attention

Give Life Your Full Attention

I have a true confession to make. I’m hopelessly addicted to my IPhone. My husband has even nicknamed me “I-Phone Lady.” He often finds me attached to my cell phone, lost in the instant communication of internet and phone messaging. I know I’m not alone here. Most of us can admit to having...

The Power of the Pause Button

The Power of the Pause Button

Can you believe that it’s already August? The sweet days of summer are moving right along and I want to know if you’ve taken advantage of the tradition of “summer break” which I’d like to rename “summer pause” so we can reclaim and reinvent the school-days tradition. Have you had your...
