‘You’re with your mother!’

Mom’s birthday is this month. She passed away in 2004 but she lives forever in our hearts, thoughts and memories.  
Mom had class. I see photos of her alone, with Dad and/or others, and her elegance shines: the way she stood, her expressive hands, sparkling eyes and beautiful smile. She dressed with flair—a scarf here, a flower there or matching shoes. Truly a graceful lady.

Radio days

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic for the bygone era of listening to a baseball game on a crappy-sounding transistor radio. I define nostalgia as the feeling you get when your memory of something is better than what it actually was. I don’t need to bother mustering any warm feelings for the transistor radio, because AM reception is just as crappy-sounding now as it was then.

Only if you’re lucky

Be careful what you wish for…you might get it!

In the first case, my client Lois in Ardsley decided that it was time to get her paperwork in order. After six years of shifting paperwork, a dysfunctional home office, an international move and the purchase of a new home, she had HAD ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”

Having had the ...
