Once a week on Sunday, I send out an email with my thoughts about wellness, wisdom, wealth + memories about my life with Belle + new adventures with my puppy Vladimir.

New Meditation of the Month is HERE Latest Puppy Photos & Videos HERE The most common thing all my friends who hadn’t yet met Vlad but came to his birthday party last Sunday said was some version of: “It’s usually disappointing when you meet a celebrity in real life but… Meeting Vlad––and e...
I’m just now returning home from Vlad’s first art gallery event. We went to the closing night celebration of Charles Norton’s exhibit for me to pick up the print I bought. (If you missed that newsletter, you can read it HERE). Other than a tree trimming in our living room and a Christmas moment at...
Vlad’s 1st birthday is coming upand I’ve been making lots of plans. I have NOT always, however, been a particularly passionate birthday party fan. I remember right after college saying something snarky to my friend Brian about how it’s pretty silly to commemorate the random day on which someone was b...
This is a story in three acts. Unfortunately, for now, I can only share the first one. The second is a little too raw and recent (plus I feel should ask a few permissions first since the experience is shared.) And as for the third act, well… While sometimes I do like to open in medias res, the ...
New Meditation of the Month is HERE. We met a very foolish lady in the dog park this week. She was with her silent husband. And they had an incredibly cute golden retriever (1-2 years old) I later learned was named “River.” The River Family was on the outskirts of the park. Vlad and Malibu immedi...

And also extremely poetic: “In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee.In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.” And for me, I measure the year by the anniversary of Belle going to her heav...
Radical Abundance $27 HERE. I don’t want you to have to wait as long as I did. Specifically, over the holidays when I returned home, I found a childhood photo I’d never seen before. I was born on July 2nd and it’s Christmas, so I’m one and a half years old in it. Obviously, we first have to applaud...
For better or worse, given how amazing this past Friday was, the rest of 2022 seems destined as anticlimax. Vlad and Malibu (and their other puppy friends) experienced their first real snowfall. At 7am that morning, the baseball field was suddenly Studio 54, the only party in town. And the joy was un...
