Dream of Blog

Hands down my dream for this website is for our age group to get together and share our stories. How many of you feel like you are going through your life alone? I am talking about alone in your head. Unless you have a therapist that you see weekly (sometimes you wish you could see […]

Galline Vecchie Fanno Buon Brodo

Gallina vecchia fanno buon brodo. Cosa vuol dire?  Una gallina vecchia ha la carne dura, e per farla ammorbidire, bisogna cuocerla a lungo; questo fa sì che il brodo venga più saporito. Fuor di metafora, il detto allude alla positività della vecchiaia per via delle molte esperienze accumulate nel corso della vita.

Email from Son

And then there are those days when you walk through the door, turn on your laptop, take a seat and read your e-mail… from my oldest: Mom, What I wanted to say earlier to you was that when I got back in my car, and saw that you had deposited the money, it made me […]

Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush Story

Yesterday was April 17, 2018. Like every year, it was my father’s birthday. If he were still alive, he would’ve been 80 years old. But yesterday Barbara Bush passed away at the age of 92, which reminded me of this story. The Bush family owns a house in Kennebunkport, Maine – it has been in […]

Raised Hands

Horrible Mom

May I see a show of hands, of those of you who think or believe (to be true) that you are the worst mother? Seriously, if I had a dime for every time I thought I was THE world’s worst mother – I could own Microsoft. Or be the female version of Bill Gates. I […]

Big Bird in Central Park

Moment of Disbelief

I actually took this photo last October in Central Park. It was a sight to behold. I think Big Bird must’ve gotten lost on his way to Sesame Street no doubt… Have you ever had one of those moments when you think to yourself, “I can’t make this crap up, I have seen everything now.” […]

Guilty Pleasures

I’m going to go out on a limb here (not really) and assume we all have more than one guilty pleasure. Yes? A game of “I’ll tell you mine, if you tell me yours.” Wanna play? Good, I knew you would. I will go first, as this is my blog! But do tell me yours. […]
