  With a touch of cold still in the air, it isn’t quite spring yet. It’s close, but not exactly. But this past weekend, I decided I didn’t care. It was close enough. We have been so stuck inside these last few weeks. I work from my dining room table, which is a growing monstrosity of technology, files, phones – wait, that’s what my NYC office looks like too. Here, however, I look out the window to my deck and backyard. You may remember (or not) that we recently installed a...

  Don’t you? I’d like to spend one day not obsessing about washing my hands, the dangers of supermarket shopping or how much time it is going to take to clean my house. Bad and scary news is everywhere right now. Although I will be optimistic we will one day soon turn the corner, we haven’t yet. When this all started, I was consuming news all the time – 24/7. I couldn’t get enough information as I was trying to process a situation that made little sense. Now, I am the ...

  Last night we “facetimed” with Bill’s cousins. These are wonderful people we haven’t seen in years.  They live across the country.   But in light of everyone hunkering down, they reached out to try to connect. So, as a bright spot in an otherwise tumultous day, we all got together, my kids and all, to catch up – with sound and video. It was so nice to hear about family and life and all of those good things. Quite honestly, I’m not sure we would have made this connection...

  I’m curious. Where are you working right now? Our office decided to go remote starting this week. Even though I have done a fair amount of work from home over the years, this is definitely a different experience. We are for all intents and purposes a remote office. Technology is critical. We are relying on it like never before. I can’t say I don’t worry about technology being overloaded. I feel very lucky that our practice could move seamlessly to remote work. Not ...

  I need a favor Gotham. We are in very challenging times changing the way we greet other people. If you know me, I am most likely to engage in some form of touch to say hello. It might be a handshake, or admittedly, if I know you better a hug. With recommendations from the CDC in today’s coronavirus environment, those greetings are no longer acceptable. Instead, we greet each other by fist bumps, elbow touch or perhaps a creative toe-to-toe greeting. I get it, really I...

Typically, those words in the supermarket are the precursor to a complaint. I heard this conversation transpiring behind me as I multi tasked on a long line. But then I was surprised – and yes, I was eavesdropping.   When the manager approached, my fellow shopper explained her “ask”. She explained that the woman behind her was there shopping to stock the group home at which she worked with food for the week. I looked over. Overflowing does not come close to describing how pa...

  This was our very intellectual conversation over dinner Saturday night. When it comes to soup – do you eat or drink? My line in the sand has always been tied to the utensil used. If you use a spoon, I say you are eating soup. If the soup is in a mug or a cup, then it is drinking. Help please. Do you agree with me?  Or do you have some other distinction?...

  It was supposed to be a quick stopover in Baltimore on the way back to New York after some relaxing time in Florida. But that plan soon changed. A young woman and her three young children boarded the plane. She most definitely had her hands full. A flight attendant commented almost in passing about the baby’s flushed face. Innocently, the mom responded that the baby had been getting over a fever. That was the moment that changed everything. The young woman and her chi...

  Or maybe not. I was on the trip home one day last week engrossed in reading something on my phone when I noticed a commotion behind me. We were stopped at Jamaica and an unruly passenger had come into my car, loud, angry, carrying way too many bags and disheveled. He was yelling at everyone around him and clearly making the crowd nervous. With that a woman who could have ben his grandmother jumped in and asked him what was wrong. Still loud and angry, he told her that...
