In the midst of everything that is going on, we strive for a few moments of calm. Over the years, I’ve tried to adopt various forms of relaxation - unfortunately most efforts have not been successful.Recently, we came across the app “Calm” and have been using it every morning.Five minutes of guided meditation.Recognizing the need for calm was the first, and perhaps, biggest, step. Commitment is next. Happily, in the midst of all this chaos, it seems to be working.How do you f...

I had my first Covid dream a few days ago. It was about reopening and returning to the office.... back to normal.There was an awareness of measures in place to safely return.At my office desk, I settled in and reacquainted myself with the security of surroundings that I was so accustomed to. A good feeling.But then I was struck by the absence of masks and a rather cavalier attitude of those around me. As I woke, I heard myself saying  “I hope we don’t all get sick ... again.”...

About a week ago, my friend, Gil, sent me the picture shown on this blog. Twenty people wearing masks over looking Jerusalem. Prophetic ? Not exactly…. We were on a trip to Israel with about twenty people. Two weeks of touring on a bus and meeting people. We didn’t know — until about the end of the first week, that we were an incubator for the Flu virus. Someone on the trip had the virus and, during the course of two weeks, the virus had us - almost every one of us (althou...

After taking care of a few technical glitches—people dialing in on the wrong number and eliminating static from a bad connection — we settled in to our first Gotham Covid 19 conference call on Tuesday at 5 pm. (In the interest of not leaving anyone out or getting names wrong, I will not mention names.) It was informative group therapy.... We shared our different experiences, from groceries to working, from doom and gloom to the hope of new opportunities for creativity, an...

I commented on Nancy’s blog on Tuesday about handshakes (and other forms of greeting) by recounting a recent meeting where the attendees waved to each other. Since then I have had a recurring image of the late poet and songwriter Leonard Cohen and his gesture of greeting and acknowledgement: palms together and a slight bow…. a simple, yet very meaningful, gesture. We are all in the current health crisis together. Be mindful that, as we seek to protect ourselves individu...

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 expected to see and quite unsettling. I had read several op...

I must have seen the commercial a dozen times. Recently, it has taken on new meaning.
In addition to discovering ancestry, the tests offer meaningful insight into genetic tendencies for illnesses.
My apprehension about genetic testing is under internal review. Is it the next generation of diagnostics?
But questions remain....and.... Do I want to know?

The idea for this blog came from Fred. In case you missed it, Fred - yes our Fred - suffered from a very bad pre-winter cold. When I recently asked him how he was feeling, he admitted to feeling better, although not completely healed. I responded that he would soon be feeling 100% and, more significantly, that he would soon forget how bad he had felt. I am grateful that I don’t re-feel pain and discomfort when I remember them. I can remember a joyful moment and actually f...

We are all exposed to statistics all the time. Among those are the “side effects” of medicines. I generally shy away from medicines. Statistics about the long term side effects have motivated me to reduce the one maintenance drug that was prescribed many years ago. Recently, I was advised to take the new shingles vaccine. The adverse side effects were minimized. Statistical risk is so small. Two friends have taken the vaccine. One had a temporary reaction. Not surprising o...

The owner of our auto body shop (doesn’t everyone with a car have “their” body shop?) has a thoughtful word of advice. “If it can be fixed with money, it’s not really a problem.” Think about it. ...
