Weekly Inspirations

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.

√  Beachwalk with Susan & Belle –– spectacular weather √  Drive Susan (and Val) to airport √  Platinum Parking (thanks to new parking permit) √  Moves files and projects upstairs from cottage so I can re-stack & re-organize √  Nap √  Watch remainder of Season 3 of BORED TO DEATH (1/2 complete) √  H...
              I have listened to four hours of Platinum Marketing today –– only another two hours to go and I am complete –– and I’m sorta totally into it and at the same time playing iphone scrabble constantly and tidying up small stacks of books and papers, and fe...
This morning our experience at the Municipal Parking Authority can truly only be described as a TRIUMPH. This is largely because Belle and I were braced for hours in line of waiting.  It  turned out to be 10 minutes, with a brief intermission since because of zoning subtleties we had to regroup and return ...

Amy has become a real friend this fall, which is remarkable given that her book launch happen...
