Recently I sat in the middle seat on a cross county flight, between my husband who had the aisle seat and a stranger who had the widow seat. Several times during the flight the channel on the television I was watching unexpectedly changed. After the second time, I realized the channel changed because the stranger next to me had put his arm on the armrest where the television controls were located.   The third time the channel changed I told the person sitting next to me what...

On Friday morning I started, what will be, a  long custody trial. As most lawyers will tell you, trial work can be emotionally and physically exhausting as well as mentally challenging. You really have to be “on” 100% of the time throughout the entire proceeding. Custody trials, by their nature, can be emotionally draining not only on the litigants but on the attorneys as well. And this particular trial is especially difficult.   As I left the courthouse late Friday afternoo...

I always thought of myself as a good patient. I rarely, if ever, take a sick day from work. In fact, I do not recall the last time I did. I push myself to get whatever I need to get finished, no matter how I feel.   Sunday, I woke up with an apparent stomach virus. I stayed in my room most of the day in my pajamas, alternating between complaining, sleeping, and whining about how bad I felt. Clearly, not good patient behavior.     Are you a good patient? ...

Professionally, I had a difficult week last week;  juggling several court appearances, late nights at the office, and a few emotionally charged cases. To say that I was pre-occupied with work last week would be an understatement.   On Saturday morning I ran a few errands in a local shopping center. When I had finished my errands I walked in the TJ Maxx store located in the same shopping center.  There was nothing I needed to purchase, I just planned on strolling through the ...

Another Gotham member and I had a long discussion this week about a former colleague.  Several years ago, our former colleague had made a series of bad and, arguably, exceedingly unethical business decisions. As a result, she lost her job and paid a civil fine. To my knowledge, that was the extent of her “punishment.” I remember, at the time, being shocked at the intensity of the allegations levied against her.     Fast forward now five years. The former colleague is now in ...

On Friday, I had the occasion to take the Long Island Rail Road into Manhattan for a court appearance. Sometimes, while on the train, I enjoy just sitting in my seat, looking out the windows, and just watching the world go by. You never know what you might see.   On Friday, the view was particularly beautiful. The ice-which had been so difficult to navigate during the previous days’ commute-created a beautiful sheen on the snow. From my seat on the train, I felt that I was t...

In the world of social media, “likes” are very important. I recently noticed that  my daughter had taken down a picture she had posted on Instagram. When I asked her why the photograph was removed she told me, “Because I didn’t get enough “likes” in the first hour it was up.”   Based on my Facebook year end history I am a good “liker.” Apparently, I hit the “like” icon on Facebook over 6,000 times in 2016.  I guess I do my part to help those who find “likes” important.     ...

In Yiddish the word for jinx is kaynahora. Kaynahora is roughly similar to “knock on wood” and is often spoken to ward off a jinx after praise or good news. Kaynahora is a contraction of three Yiddish words: kayn ayin hara, literally not (kayn) the evil (hara) eye (ayin). Essentially, kaynahora is a word that one uses when they want to ward off the evil eye. I find myself using the word quite often. This weekend I read  an interview in the Sunday Times with of one of the p...

Anyone who knows me knows I love to travel, my fear of flying notwithstanding. And my husband and I have tried to instill our wanderlust into our children. We have always taken them on vacation during Christmas vacation and, in the past, have tried to take them travelling more often than once a year.   In addition, on each vacation, I try to schedule at least one day trip that will educate us about the culture of the country we are in.  For example, on our recent vacation to...

I have a habit that, I know, annoys my friends and family. I, generally, do not listen to my voice messages on my cell phone.  I will, almost always, call them back but, when asked about the message they left, I have to admit that I did not spend the time to listen to it.     Conversely, if I call someone on their cell phone, I generally will not leave a message.  So, if you call me on my cell phone, I will definitely call you back. Just do not expect me to listen to the mes...
