New Live EVENT HEREJuly Meditation HERE. My knee-jerk reaction is that it seems pretty suspect. Specifically, according to its website, there have been 1,153 official sightings of the Loch Ness Monster…and yet there’s not one decent photo. I now hold a softer stance on the topic. You see, this ...
Even though we touched on lots of deep topics and challenging moments, it was a light-hearted, buoyant conversation.  I realized, however, that I may have made a fatal marketing mistake when my friend said, “I admire the concept, but I actually hate that word.” Unfortunately, he may be on t...
The events of the day––the 3 No Shows––had definitely thrown me off, but oddly it was the funeral that picked me right back up again. I was somewhat anticipating the first No Show. Although my business partner and friend for a Wellness project is very reliable, I also knew she was traveling in Asia a...
I don’t recall who told me it was improper, but I suspect a well-bred college friend, overly-versed in Emily Post etiquette and dramatic rebellion. (I also have a secondary suspect, but more on that later.) It doesn’t really matter to the narrative, however, but it certainly isn’t something I was tol...
It was exactly the wrong message at the perfect time. Given that most of my projects don’t require my leaving my desk chair these days, I find myself riding the subway only rarely. However, this week, it was indeed the most efficient mode of transportation for my annual physical at my Upper West Side...
One of the benefits of having taught yoga for so many years is that I can almost always pluck a poetic and highly applicable 13th century Rumi quote from the ethers when needed. In thinking about this month’s theme––The Power of Intention, new meditation HERE––several spring to mind. Perhaps most not...
It was a little over a year ago, and although somewhat comic for us bystanders, it was not a particularly auspicious beginning, and certainly not the one I had intended. Specifically, I’m referring to Vlad’s swimming career. Last May, at the Prospect Park birthday part for Bobby, Vlad’s best friend M...
It was over two decades ago but I still remember how confounded I was. At first, I was pleased that this was a problem I could easily and simply solve. (How rare is that?) But that satisfaction slowly evaporated, morphing into frustration that my no-strings-attached offer was somehow left dangling...
I suppose it’s more of a reprise than an encore, but nonetheless I love how every performance of Alvin Ailey’s Revelations is pretty much guaranteed to get a thunderous standing ovation. The euphoric feeling that washes over the audience during Rocka My Soul in the Bosom of Abraham simply demands more o...
