It's understandable to get depressed and be emotional these days - my God, I would be worried for someone if they WEREN'T flipping out. Between the news and the panic as well as the indifference to a certain segment of the human community, I have been beside myself for days.... Continue reading

How's it going? These days that simple question takes on a deeper meaning - because it's really about: how's your physical health? and how's your mental health? So, long story short - two weeks ago I was with someone who had been with someone who tested positive. OK so that... Continue reading

Ok, like many of you, I am working from home, scrambling to simultaneously keep my work life going (and be there on the front lines of cancelling / rescheduling firm events) and my personal life (like, thinking ahead to everything that needs to be done in a different way now... Continue reading

Yes! My usual ride is from the apartment up to the George Washington Bridge. Haven't done that in a couple of years and miss it. It's not 10 miles but it may be enough to get a little circulation going. :)

It's been a week since I started working from home - it doesn't feel that odd to me since I spent many years working from home as a freelance event producer. But to be in a corporate job and working from the same table I produced hundreds of fundraisers from... Continue reading

Good morning! Today is March 9th and I'm taking the day off my job to celebrate my birthday - no big plans, really, and it looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day! Being in the corporate events world, we are dealing with internal cancellations, contingency plans for mitigating... Continue reading

Thanks, William! Well, if I've gotten one wrong, at least I know it's not "just" me! :) Thanks for the correction... I did do a search and it seems as though it was Shania Twain that said it... but I think that makes me feel worse. :) lol Kidding, I love Shania. :)

OMG, I love the 'angry woman yelling at cat' memes - they have been continuously hilarious and increasingly inventive. This is my favorite - ... mainly because we had a two week vacation and I DID spend time looking at Baby Yoda memes (which have disappeared, sadly, although I found... Continue reading

I don't really talk politics here too often but I have to say that watching candidates tearing each other up during the election process is a huge turn-off. I know that politics is a game of dirty pool and if one doesn't talk like that about their opponent, then another... Continue reading

So as it's already mid-February and supposed to be 50 degrees today here in NYC, and the amount of snow that we've had in New York has been roughly, about zero, I think all the signs point to winter being over. Yes, I know we technically have a few weeks... Continue reading

Good morning and happy Saturday - hope that you had a great Valentine's Day - I spent part of yesterday braving Tiffany for a piece of Italian glass I've had my eye on for some time. I knew the Mister would love it (I wasn't wrong) so in I went.... Continue reading

Every so often I sit back in awe of my friends: their activism, their concern, their intelligence, their integrity, their perseverance during this difficult and challenging time in our history. The strength that my friends show to their community has been an inspiration. Sooo... thanks. :) Continue reading

I know this is four years old, but I've only now just discovered this Bored Panda article about Florida artist James Hance's illustrations of STAR WARS characters as WINNIE THE POOH characters. Sweet and charming - worth a look! Continue reading

Ok so if anyone who has never been to a gay bar has ever wondered what it's like, last Saturday night's episode of Saturday Night Live was, for me, like spending 90 minutes in the Boiler Room in the East Village - there was drag, shade, intelligent conversation, cute guys,... Continue reading

In these troubled times, this meme speaks to everything that I think and feel. I cannot stress this enough. As a side note, growing up I was not taught to fear God as others I knew did - I could not quite ever come to grips with the images of... Continue reading

Hope everyone reading this had a great weekend - we got stuff done, I did some reading, I watched some TV and I cracked open my new Ipad and figured out how to start using it to draw. Unfortunately I also spent an inordinate amount of time trying to make... Continue reading

So in my mad whirl to unload, decrease, move forward, I've been taking inventory on many things in my life. Now, it's unrealistic to expect that I can do 'everything' at once, so I have been trying to give myself a bit of latitude to make forward movement every day... Continue reading

It occurred to me the other night, as I sat at a party, that I, like most people, live and die by our baggage. I'm talking emotional baggage not Samsonite (although I did have an acquaintance once whose luggage was worth more than everything I owned combined, so that does... Continue reading
