The old me would have apologized for the Beach Boys comment.

If you stand on a street corner and poll human beings about their special talents, you will probably hear things like: “I bake great chocolate chip cookies.” “I can fix anything anywhere.” “I can recite all the state capitals while standing on my head – watch!” etc. What you will probably not hear is: “I create elaborate […]

I’m starting a Screw It movement. Join me. Or screw it. Either way is fine.

Lately, two little words have been changing my life. No, I’m not talking about not “Housewives Reunion”, “sleeping in”, or “elastic waistband.” (Although each of these is a game changer, too.) I’m talking about words that are almost never taught to us as children and rarely celebrated in the adult world either. But when I […]

While I’m at it, does anyone know a good foot doctor?

With so many politicians having become caricatures of themselves, the things that we humans struggle with are being brought into sharp relief for us to see clearly and deal with. For example. I have long believed that, while women’s rights and LGBT rights are clearly important and we must continue fighting for them, what’s also […]

She’s four. And I’m not, so…

We have a bit of a…situation…at home. Lately, Piper, our lovely middle child, who will be five in a few short months, has regressed to temper tantrums. These are not mild temper tantrums. These are knock-down, drag-out, where-is-that-box-of-wine-I-bought-at-Walgreens? tantrums that come on totally out of the blue. One minute, she is kissing my face telling […]

You show me your mid-life crisis and I’ll show you mine.

I’m noticing a change happening in the world. Perhaps you have noticed it, too. I’m not talking about the fact that man buns slowly seem to be on the decline. (Perhaps this is all wishful thinking on our part, anyway.) Rather, I’m talking about the fact that the conventional wisdom so many of us were […]

There is enough to go around. Unless there isn’t, and then we need to just deal.

If you spend any time at all in the modern parenting world, there is a verb you will hear over and over, usually attached to a little child’s name.   “We share our toys, Vivianne.”   “Finn, please share one of your trains with that little girl.”   “You need to share, Magnus.”   “Can […]

It’s gotta be better than poking myself in the eye for the next four years

I’ve decided that, for the next four years, I am going to use Donald Trump as a radical spiritual teacher. This follows a practice I began in my life a few years ago of ceasing to view difficult relationships as just difficult relationships, but rather as the greatest spiritual teachers I could have. To be […]

I see your sad mess and raise you a wobbly puddle of jello

I’ve cried twice already this morning. And while it may be in part because of the collective energy surrounding today and what it means for so many of us, it actually happened at one of the places most likely to solicit my tears – Gus’s hearing check up. I get emotional when I step into […]
