  Do you find yourself, once in a while, daydreaming at your desk?   This week I was working on a long difficult document and I really needed a bit of an intellectual break. So, for a few minutes I took a mental break and planned my dream trip. For me, that trip would be to Paris. While I was in Paris for one day while on a cruise, I would love to spend more time there. For a few moments, at my desk, I thought about walking the Champs Elysee, eating in small French bistro...

  Before the internet and cell phones there were two ways to wish someone a happy birthday. You either called them or mailed them a birthday card. With people you are close to, you probably would have done both. With cell phones and social media, our choices are much more expansive.     Currently, in addition to mailing cards and calling, one can text, post on Facebook or Instagram. And for those who are really social media savvy, you can send a Snap story (admittedly I h...

  I have to thank Corey Bearak for the following blog topic. He sent me an article from the NY Times. Essentially the article began as follows:     The share of women who earn more than their husbands, while still relatively small, is growing. When women do earn more, both husbands and wives seem uncomfortable — to the point of lying about it.   That’s the finding of a new paper from the Census Bureau, which compared what respondents told census surveyors about their earni...

  I always thought I was a procrastinator. In fact I would say that I had procrastination down to a science. I have come to realize that I am not a procrastinator. In fact, I am actually the opposite; I get my tasks completed early.     The realization came to me recently when I had a substantial set of responsive motion papers due. I had the papers completed and sent out to the other attorney days before they were due. The day the papers were mailed out the attorney called...

  · I thought it was me. Recently, another attorney's personal comments were making me a bit uncomfortable. But, I could not articulate a single individual statement that was specifically innappropriate. And, in the wake of the #metoo movement I didn't think any male attorney would still think it would be appropriate to make personal statements to me. It had to be me.   Then I received an email from him concerning an upcoming court appearance which he signed, "XO."  I w...

  I had lunch this week with a long time friend who also happens to be a matrimonial attorney. At one point the conversation turned to business development and networking. He is a member of a certain networking group in which you attend weekly early meetings, keep track of member referrals etc. .     Within time, the conversation turned to Gotham. He had never heard of Gotham before so I began to explain our mantra, “what goes around comes around and it’s better to give th...

  Its two days later and social media is still all abuzz about the Royal Wedding. I believe Russel Crowe expressed it best. He tweeted, “It feels like the world paused for a moment to witness love.” I felt the same way, with all of the horrific news coming out of Texas and Cuba on Friday it was nice to take a short break away and witness the wedding of a young couple in love.     Watching Harry’s expression when he saw his bride walking down the aisle and seeing him mout...

  Fred has a saying that I love, “Let your freak flag fly.” While I have never specifically discussed this with Fred, I have always taken this to mean, be proud of your individuality. Embrace what makes you different.     For me, my freak flag involves my love of science fiction. I grew up watching science ficton on television, “Star Trek,” “Lost in Space,” and “Space 1999” (only true science fiction fans would know the last one). As an avid reader of any type of fiction, a...

  Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self?     In court last week, a judge asked me a question. I began my response with, “Honestly Judge. . .” Before I could get the rest of my response out the judge stopped me, laughed and said, “If I could get some honesty in my courtroom that would be so refreshing.” We both shared a laugh and moved on.     That exchange immediately brought me back to back to a similar incident that occurred to ...

  I read an article this morning which said that Princess Kate and Prince William are celebrating their first anniversary as a family of five. In reading that article my first thought went to the fact that, after the birth of Prince Louis this week they now have an older child, middle child and youngest child.     I grew up in a family of five. I was the middle child with an older brother and younger sister. Happily, the three of us are still relatively close and I consider...
