I have had a love-hate relationship with thank you notes for most of my life – I loved the idea of them, but hated writing them. I remember the trials and tribulations that went with thank-you card writing after my Bat Mitzvah. There’s very little that a 12-year-old girl would rather do LESS than sit …

Today marks the 14th anniversary of my father’s passing. To be honest, I didn’t think a lot about it today. But then the melancholy hit this evening – the sadness of what could have been; what I’d always hoped for; what never came to pass.
Tonight, in honor of my dad, …

I have always believed in a mind-body connection, but it seemed kind of vague and hard to quantify. I’d notice that when I was happy I felt better physically…but on the other hand, perhaps I was feeling happy because I felt well physically? In the world of cause-and-effect, it could go either way.

As I sat down in her chair, something inside me said this was going to be a bumpy ride. This wasn’t going to be relaxing or restful.
I was about to fight another demon. She wasn’t the demon herself, but she sure as heck was about to trigger the demon inside of me.

Hello miracle watchers! Long time, no talk.
Thank you all so much for your ongoing messages of support and love. They mean the world to me! Being with my mom through her cancer treatment experience has been both challenging and wonderful, and I’m sure I’ll have lots to share about it in the months …

Yesterday my mom had her first chemotherapy treatment. About 99% of you — including some of my close friends — are now saying, “Oh my gosh, I had no idea!!”
Mom and I haven’t been keeping it a secret, but we’ve mostly only talked with a small group of very close friends and family. We …

I have a confession. Things have been kind of rocky for me lately. Things have gotten waaaay out of balance and the result is that I’ve been out-of-sorts for quite a while.
I love what I do. I’m proud of the work that I’ve been doing here on the Journal and out in the world. …
