  So much conversation I hear these days is about reinvention and recreation for your business. My own observation is that coming out on the other side of this pandemic (optimistically) is encouraging all sorts of change. I’ve heard talk about new business directions, closing city offices, expanding areas or markets through tools acquired over the last year. [As a footnote, I’ve also heard much talk about how to get rid of that COVID 15. That is the subject of a differe...

This blog is not about whether you will, or will not, take the Covid vaccine. This blog is about how you felt afterwards if you did take it.   I am curious to hear different people’s reactions to the vaccine. I am also interested to hear whether you believe having Covid affected your reaction. In my family, all three vaccines were taken. My husband and two daughters had Moderna, I had Pfizer and my step-son had Johnson and Johnson.   Within, approximately 7 hours of taking J...

A year ago (plus) I had planned to go. A year ago it got postponed and then when time to proceed came, no fans allowed. This year I aimed to go. I did, but not as planned, The recent tradition – until the canceled year – involved a small group, including a family member, not always the same, some clients and friends. Groups could not play this year. My foray involved a friend who collaborated on the annual opening day group and a few of his colleagues. A number of friends opt...

I used to wake up and look at myself once a day...maybe twice then go to work.

 

Now I see myself all day long at Zoom meetings and it's strange to say the least.

Zoom

I look at my square on the screen and wonder who the hell is that and what did you do with Mitch?

I recall my last pre pandemic hand shake with my Mate Andrew Ambrose.   Since then I have religiously refrained from doing something which comes so naturally and can mean so much.  I even wondered if the ritual would go out of style and be relegated to the rubbish heap of history.  Then we got vaccinated and the thought cropped up.  Would I shake hands and if so with whom?  Then Charcoal had a medical emergency and the Veterinarian was closed for the weekend and I texted the ...

Have you ever wondered what “normal” — as in “the temperature today was 5 degrees above normal” - is?Well, it’s about to change.Normal temperatures are determined by a thirty year average of temperatures. Every ten years the average is reset by dropping the earliest decade’s numbers. The change is about to take place and the new normal temperatures will be the average of temperatures from 1990 through 2020.So, as in so many things in our lives, what’s “normal” will soon be th...

  I am seeing optimism. Optimism about a waning pandemic and the prospect of some normalcy in our future. I don’t have a crystal ball so I can’t tell you exactly when that normalcy arrives or frankly, exactly what it will look like. But, with the spring flowers this year I see people come out from under this pandemic. I know we’re not quite there yet.  I do think, though, about how each of us would gauge what we have learned from the past year. I know I’ve learned a lot abo...

My family and I enjoyed a delicious paella dinner in the city Saturday night. The occasion was to celebrate my stepson’s birthday (that he happens to share with Fred). In the spirit of celebration, I ordered a pitcher of sangria for the table. To be a bit bold and adventurous I ordered something intriguing on the menu, rose sangria, without questioning the server about it.   The others at the table loved the sangria. From my first taste, I knew something was wrong. There was...
Driving last night, Safe At Home played on my A Good Feeling To Know Radio station on Apple Music. Interestingly, that Souther Hillman Furay tune that opened side two of the original vinyl served as the title of the blog a year ago today.   Right after, came Pure Prairie League’s Two Lane Highway. It made me wonder if my Songs of the Road playlist included that song. It did not! Wondered how that happened.   I actually did a search of “highway” on that play list. The third a...

Hearing about bystanders at George Floyd's trial wishing they had done something and the guards that watched an old lady be beaten and did nothing, I take inspiration from Aristotle. "If you want a virtue, act as if you already have it and then it will be yours. Change comes through action. Act first, then become."   Virtues don’t come through simply by thinking about them. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.   Ted...

My birthday was Tuesday.  Years are the mile markers of life! Thank you Erin McKenna (and Guy deBoer and Joanne) for allowing me to mark another year (pictured-Erin McKenna photo).   My goal is to, at least, reach Key Largo and who’s to say? With Juice Plus (Shelley Simpson), Tequila (5:30 with Bergers), massage (Jill McFadgen), before Pilates Pilates (Molly Ross), daily walks and bike rides (Charcoal and my 2 wheeler), regular exercise (push-ups, crunches, planks, wall squat...

Thursday, April 1st. April Fool’s Day. Opening Day. The Mets and Yankees begin the baseball season — with fans in the stands for the first time since 2019. “Fool” and “opening”. “Opening” and “fool”. Two words, two concepts. Both associated with the same day. Two words that have considerably different meaning today than they had a year ago. Enjoy the day. ...

Today, I honor our new friend and Founder of The Inspiration Project, Mrs. Barbara Mishkin. Barbara visted our joint Gotham meeting earlier this month and she inspires me, everyday. She's a natural Gothamite. Barbara shares: "A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it in the hallway. The professors then mixed all the balloons. The students were given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no ...

  I’m not exactly sure why we’ve been going through old papers at my mom’s house lately. Maybe we are all missing my dad. It’s been just four years. I know I truly find comfort in memories. The most interesting thing, however, is that we are learning things about my dad that none of us knew – including my mom. We found an old resume. From it we learned details about his military service in Korea. We knew that he had served but didn’t know that he had received a number o...

I am sure it has happened to everyone. You are on your way somewhere and realize you forgot your cell phone. It happened to me last week. I was on my way to meet my children for dinner. Ten minutes away from the restaurant I realized I had left my cell phone on the charger in my home.   Initially panic set in. I was too far from my house to retrieve my phone. I started imagining horrible scenarios, such as a client would need me and I would not be available. My husband quick...
