One of the lessons that Justice Ginsburg often repeated was the wisdom from her mother-in-law who advised her that sometimes it is advisable to be deaf. Although it may have been first offered as advice for happiness in marriage, I recently heard a commentator who said that the Justice followed that advice in her professional life as well — not allowing herself to be distracted and lose focus by reacting to anger and other diversions often encountered. A lesson from Justice ...

I posted this blog six months ago. Little did we know…… Last Sunday, we took a flight back to New York from the happy island of Aruba (that’s the subject of another blog). I had given some thought to the usual concerns associated with flying and getting sick. Flo had a very adequate supply of antibacterial wipes - which were put to good use. I thought I had it under control yet was surprised by my reaction to the face masks on the plane. But it was more than I had expec...

Our local supermarket follows the guidelines for masks and social distancing. In addition to monitoring the number of people inside, masks, and providing disinfecting wipes when you enter, the supermarket has imposed “one-way” aisles. A good idea from my perspective.It is annoying to me that some people don’t respect the designated direction of the aisles. More than annoying —because of the health reasons for the one-ways and the risk when not observed. I wonder whether ignor...

I was waiting in line for the farmer’s market in Great Barrington when a woman nearby said that she liked my T Shirt. I was wearing a T Shirt from Hawaii featuring the Rainbow Drive-In Diner in Honolulu. A big smile appeared on her face as she told me that her grandmother lived a few blocks from the Diner. I often vacillate between wearing t-shirts with messages as opposed to plain ones. That morning was a pleasant psychic reinforcement for wearing a shirt with a message. Th...

A few days ago I was inspired to think about the temporary nature of so many things in our lives. Although one could contemplate that everything is temporary, my attention turned to our Passion Flowers.Our Passion Flowers last just one day. The buds form over time and slowly prepare for the flower to open. We watch, hoping the buds survive to bloom. Oftentimes, they do not and fall prematurely. Those that survive wait for the morning sunlight of that one special day to open. ...

Recently, I attended a webinar on the topic of Diversity and Inclusion and I heard the simplest, and most insightful, explanation of Implicit Bias that I have ever heard. I share it in the hope that it adds to each of our understandings and helps in our respective journeys toward better self-awareness. The speaker recalled that whenever his grandfather saw a car accident or a bad driver, he would always project that the driver was a woman. Not sure where it came from, but t...

We had just gotten on the short line outside the ice cream parlor. Two couples ahead of us. I felt the presence of a person behind me and turned around to see an older man without a mask — it was on his chin — uncomfortably close to me. As I turned to look forward and considered whether to say anything, a man ahead of me turned and called out “How about your mask ? It doesn’t help on your chin.” The man behind me fixed his mask to cover his mouth and nose and started to gr...

"Play Ball" I was actually looking forward to hearing that call.Yes, it would be different. No fans in the stands. But then again, no one came to watch me when I played ball. So much drama leading up to the season. Negotiations. On, off and on again. A short season. A sprint, not the marathon of the usual baseball season. But, perhaps, a little move to normalcy. And then, almost as soon as it began, a postponement  and another. Covid is not a fan. And with these disruptions,...

The other morning we sat down for our morning meditation. As we do every morning, Flo turned on the Calm app on her phone. But weird things ensued. The app kept crashing.After a few tries, we gave up and took an unguided moment to ourselves. Then Flo turned on the radio. NPR.Resigned that if we can’t have Calm, why not theanxiety of the news?A return to “normal” ?...

We’ve all been impacted over the last few months. Some routines and habits dropped and others formed.Most changes were imposed upon us by the shutdown and we adapted. Cardboard delivery boxes appeared at our doorstep in never-imagined numbers. Zoom replaced conference rooms, and on and on. But will these changes last?I often wonder what the new normal will be. A new normal for our society and, perhaps more significantly, a new normal for me. The meditation, the walks, the mor...
