  Next week my husband and I are travelling to Charlotte, North Carolina and then on to Charleston, South Carolina. In researching what to do in Charleston-my good friend from high school lives in Charlotte so she’ll be our “tour guide” there-it became apparent to me how rich Charleston is in history, culture, and cuisine. It also became quickly obvious how different Charleston’s culture was to ours here in the Northeast.       It amazes me how truly diverse cultures can ...

  Last weekend, I noticed a common theme in several stories in the Sunday Times. There were three major stories concerning the sexual harassment and assault of women. On the front page of the main section, there was an in depth story detailing the investigation and acts of Dr. Lawrence Nassar, who sexually assaulted numerous young female athletes. On the front page of the Sunday Review was an interview with Uma Thurman who detailed the sexual harassment and assault she suffer...

  It’s that time of the year again, the day after the Super Bowl. Every year there’s debate about whether to make the day after the Super Bowl a national holiday since most people are sluggish the next day.     My husband and I host a Super Bowl party every year, so it is a very long night for us. Last year, I had a court hearing scheduled the next morning. While I made it through my hearing, I have to admit that it did take some extra caffeine to get me through. This yea...

  I love giving a good gift. Yesterday we attended my friend’s seventith  surprise party. For a month I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what to get him. As of last week, all I could think of was a  gift card.     Finally on Friday, I found the perfect gift. My husband and I travel with the friend whose birthday it was. So, clearly, something related to travel would be a perfect gift. In addition, he loves art. So, after some searching on the internet I found...

  This blog is not so much about the story that I’m relaying. This blog is about trust.     The same woman, Rachel, has been cutting and coloring my hair for the past ten years. On Saturday morning, I had an 9:00 a.m. appointment for a cut and color. The salon called me early in the morning to tell me that Rachel was ill and would not be coming in. The salon’s offer was either I could reschedule my appointment with Rachel  or they had someone else available on saturday mor...

It’s that time of the year again, Gotham invoices are available for payment. And, invariably, this is the time when I hear members asking, “What has Gotham done for me?”  Here’s my answer to that question, this is what Gotham has done for me. As most of you  who read my blog know, I love to travel but I am a very fearful flyer. Bill Solz, Gotham therapist extraordinaire, has generously spent  time talking to me and helping me to understand the genesis of the fear. While I ha...

As today is New Year’s Day, I thought it would be interesting to learn how we developed the tradition of making New Year’s resolutions. Using Google as my research tool, I learned the Babylonians made promises to their deities at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the deity Janus, for whom the month of January is named. In the Medieval era, the knights took the "peacock vow" at t...

One of the most fun aspects of this time of the year, for me,  is all of the treats that are delivered to my office. We’ve gotten Lindt chocolates, baked brownies, and chocolate covered pretzels. While I try to limit my intake, it  is exciting to see what gift will be delivered next.   My husband’s office gets similarly inundated with treats. Last week he brought home a tin of candy cane flavored popcorn. It did not sound appetizing and we all hesitated to try it. Surprisingl...

In an effort to find a favorite blog for the Gotham Gazette I read a few of my older blogs. One of first blogs concerned an attempt to overcome a personal fear. Rereading the blog several years later inspired me to revisit the topic.   As many may know I love to travel. As many of you may not know I am an extremely  fearful flyer. In that blog, I wrote about my fear of flying and wrote about my intent to overcome the fear.  Yet, here I am several years later still a very fear...

I was so saddened by the news last week of the death of David Cassidy. He truly was my first child hood crush.   As a young girl, I remember saving up $8.00 in cash and coins and mailing it all away to be a part of his fan club.  Immediately upon receiving the posters and small heart stickers with his  picture on them, I proceeded to cover my walls.  I’ll never forget how angry my mother was with me when she saw  fifty one inch stickers glued onto my pink wall. But, for David...
