Everyone was home last weekend. It was one of those special times. As my family has been known to do, we spent a whole evening watching home movies.   I can’t really explain why, but this time I was completely taken by the evolution of our hair, each and every one of us. The movies went back to literally to the day Jaclyn was born and beyond. Let’s just say we looked different. It was very 90’s.   Over the years I had puffy hair, straight hair, combination puffy and strai...

  My blog today is short. Mostly because I am trying to keep it within the rules and to keep my sentiment from sounding political. But I just can’t write about anything else. I am so very worried about our country. At the same time, however, I am choosing to be hopeful. When my kids were young, we used to say that being angry was a choice. Of course, not right in the emotional moment – but right afterwards. I would ask them – “how does it feel to be angry”? And they wou...

  Just like everything right about now, it’s a weird new year. But I am kind of psyched for 2021. Yes, I know that we are not anywhere near through the crises that have plagued us all since early last year. I’m still at my dining room table just as I was just before the new year. But there was something about the new year coming, that has made me feel hopeful. I am optimistic for what later in 2021 is going to look like. I know it doesn’t make much sense – but it feels ...

  I know it isn’t time just yet. I know that COVID will keep us close to home for a while. But at some point, we will settle into a more regular rhythm. The world will open up again and we will be able to travel. In my house, we have been talking about a trip to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary just over one year away. What do you think? Will we be able to celebrate somewhere other than here? And now I invite you to play along. It feels good to be thinking about t...

  I remember the first time I rode the subway next to a woman without pants. That’s right, without pants. As I climbed the stairs to the E Train at Penn Station, I noticed a woman ahead of me wearing a winter coat, hat, fuzzy gloves and boots – but no pants. Odd, I thought to myself, but hey, this is New York. I kept walking. A little way up the platform I came across another woman similarly un-clad. Again, I thought – super odd. But I boarded the train next to her. The wh...

I know that Corey blogged about this topic on Sunday – but I just cannot think of anything else to blog about today that makes any sense and would not seem completely superfluous. I suppose you can consider this a theme. In this country, we have the power and privilege to vote. We get to show that our voice matters. I have been so heartened by all the talk of voting in recent weeks, the strategizing about when to vote and by what method. The electorate is as engaged as we h...

  My inbox fills up pretty fast. I am absolutely not complaining, well maybe a little. The junk mail can be a little overwhelming. Lots of people really want to date me, or sell me jewelry, or want to warn me of something terrible – you get the idea. But past the junk mail which is easy enough to delete, I am constantly working on and revising systems to manage my inbox. I use flags and folders. I set aside time in the morning to clean up. Those sorts of things. But ...

  What advice would you give – or better yet, did you give – last time you helped someone draft a cover letter?   My son is getting ready to apply for summer internships.  He is a college junior studying chemical engineering (with a nuclear engineering minor) and has a strong interest in energy.   At this point, he is diligently working on cover letters. Who better to reach out to for advice than the accomplished professionals that comprise our Gotham family?   So, what would...

  I do that a lot these days. Most times, one of my blessings is that I have so many on my list! A nice place to be. On this week’s blessing list is my mom. We just celebrated her birthday (and in family tradition I am not allowed to publish exactly which one . . .) Occasions bring reflection. I know that my mom taught us all how to love and the meaning of family and caring. She grew up that way and has always demonstrated a commitment to people -- some who she doesn’t ...

In front of the television with the rabbi and cantor streaming live. I think I really liked this year’s services. With the new year approaching, we talked about how to go to services. There were three options – in person, an outdoor service or streamed from our family room couch. We chose the last, with the idea that it would be safest for this year. That, it was. But surprisingly, in addition to feeling safe, I also felt more involved in the service than any year before. ...
