  She was 15 at the time she became an activist. Now at 16, she was most recently the focal point of an international movement mobilizing young people around climate change. The intention of my blog is not political, it is admirational (I’m pretty sure that’s not really a word but I’m going with it anyway).   Greta Thunberg has a mission and a passion, and she is capable of articulating that mission and passion in a clear and direct way that motivates her generation. Put...

Gilroy California, El Paso Texas, Dayton Ohio. The 20th, 21st and 22nd mass shootings in our country just in 2019 alone. 3 + 22 + 9 = 34 people whose lives were cut short. They were mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, brothers, sisters – to someone. I am so angry at all of this that I can’t find the right words. These atrocities are acts of hate against innocent people. While I so very much appreciate the way communities come together to support each other in the f...

  Yesterday was not an ordinary day, but unfortunately, it was one that has become all too uncomfortably common.     Someone thought it was a good idea to try to blow themselves up in the train station at Times Square. By definition, that is not a good idea at all.   The outcome could have been far worse but still, these periodic episodes of inexplicable behavior shake your center before normal returns.     By the time I stepped onto the LIRR, the incident was under inve...

  We spent Mother’s Day celebrating with my cousin’s family. For the first time in as long as I can remember there were young children in the room. Lots of noise, lots of running, lots of things flying across the room and lots of fun. It was striking to me that my family doesn’t have little ones any more. Our youngest cousin is going to turn 15. She’s the baby. We still have lots of noise and lots of fun but it’s a different experience without the little ones. Qui...

  This past Sunday was the annual No Pants Subway Ride. That’s right, no pants. Subway riders in more than 60 cities around the world (including New York) and spanning 25 countries simultaneously drop and remove their pants and ride their respective subways. The event that started as a prank back in 2002 includes specific directions about where to enter the subway car, when to exit and how to answer passengers questions in between. “Where are your pants?” for example is to...

  This past weekend, we visited Hyde Park. It was a beautiful day to tour the home that spanned the entirety of FDR’s entire life –from his birth through his death. Inside the main house, we saw the room in which he was born and just to the side of the house, both FDR and Eleanor are buried in his mother’s rose garden. The most interesting part of the tour was around the personal relationship between FDR, and the strong women in his life, specifically his mother and his wi...

I am not really a fan of Starbucks coffee. Maybe a Frappuccino on a hot day but for a regular cup of coffee I have other favorites. But today’s news definitely changed my allegiance. Starbucks started a new program to encourage its staff to pursue a college degree. According to one news report, 70 percent of Starbucks workers don’t have a college degree. But with the newly announced program, employees can take online courses and in some cases pursue a full degree –and al...
