My Thinking Chair

Some time ago, I went to Home Goods with a friend to look for picture frames. As we entered the store, I saw an arm chair on display. It was upholstered in neutral shades of cream and taupe, had soft, easy lines and looked quite comfortable. I sat in it and immediately felt embraced in pleasant warmth.  

I immediately knew this chair would look great in my bedroom; I went to the ...

Stop the Madness

March Madness seems to be getting madder and madder each year, and there’s going to come a time when the whole month is given a full mental evaluation and finally committed to a psychiatric institution.

It’s no secret that March is bipolar. One day it’s acting like a lion. The next day it’s acting like a lamb. Baaa, I say. We celebrated the first day of spring with a ...

Before James Bond

I was 8 years old, addicted to Nancy Drew mysteries, “The Shadow” and “The Green Hornet.”  The world was at war. We were inundated with catchy slogans: “A slip of the lip can sink a ship,” “Don’t talk, chum, chew Topps Gum,” and superheroes abounded.  

My father, a doctor, was three years older than his brother. They looked very ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
