  The other day, I pulled into a parking lot by a local store. Another driver and I approached an open spot at exactly the same time from opposite directions.     How many of us have had that experience? The other driver looks angrily, honks, won’t move, etc. All because of a proprietary feeling over a parking spot.     On this particular day, however, we both looked at each other and laughed – and the other driver promptly waved at me, backed up and took another spot.   ...

  We are doing it again. Packing to send a child off to college.     This time its my son and a completely different experience.     When we moved my daughter in to school – each of four years – it was a three day process. Freshman year there were actually ceremonies that the parents attended but after that, it was about shopping and putting furniture together, space planning and decorating.     So now we are getting ready to do it again but at a different school. I ca...

  Has anyone else noticed an increase in the number of calls trying to sell you something??     Don’t get me wrong. I am certain some of the causes are noble – and really, I am sure my computer is broken, and the only solution is for a perfect stranger to take control and fix it. But, when I get home at night, or on my precious weekend days, the last thing I want to do is answer the phone to someone pushing me to buy more insurance, or solar panels or . . .     My appro...

  We spent last week in Florida visiting family, including my mother in law. She recently celebrated her 96th birthday. Think about that. She was born in 1922. World War I was over and she would be a young girl when World War II broke out. She was born during Prohibition (which didn’t end until 1933) and lived through the Great Depression. Her body may be starting to show some wear and tear, but her memory and recollection are pristine. As a result, sitting and just tal...

  It’s such a small thing, but so powerful and so noticeable when absent.     When someone says “thank you” it means that they appreciate something you have done. With two small words, they show gratitude for something large or small. It could be as simple as a cashier saying thank you when your transaction is complete. Or if someone gets up to give you their seat on a crowded subway, a thank you is certainly called for.     I remember a parent teacher conference when J...

Sometimes I wish I had a blog in the box ready to go. Here's how Monday night goes in my house.  At some point late, I turn around and a loud curse word escapes from my lips and whichever family  member is nearby says out loud -- "You have to write a blog". Yes, yes I do.   Today I ask for ideas.  What would you like your bloggers to tlak about?  Let's come up with a list.   You start....

  My daughter and I were having a conversation the other day about college professors. I was kind of astounded by the process she was describing in choosing a course to take.     She was explaining to me that part of choosing a class is vetting the professor. For most professors, there is information available on professor rating websites to see student experience.     It’s a new world. ...

  With Father’s Day just having passed, I think about the type of wisdom and advice that passes from father to child.   My father was all about honesty, integrity and doing the right thing -- alongside a corny joke. He was very free with his advice. To this day, I continue to hear stories about advice my father gave family and friends when it came to handling difficult times in their lives. And, in every situation, it was about making sure to do right.   Your turn . . . w...

Before a series of firsts.     Today was my son’s last day of high school class. He has one test before graduation next week, but for all intents and purposes his high school years have ended.     Two weeks ago we had his last Spring Concert, the last time he will arrange and perform with his acapella group. Then of course, there was prom this past Friday night.     See what I mean? It’s a series of lasts. Don’t get me wrong. Each “last” has been a celebration of accomp...

  My house is in the middle of two graduations. It’s the thing that happens when your children are four years apart. But, that is not the subject of my blog. I promise, much to follow on those subjects.     As I write this blog, I am sitting here perusing my son’s high school yearbook. I intentionally ordered doubles of both yearbooks. I decided that when I was old and grey (next year . . .) and my children were no longer under my roof, I was going to want to be able to rem...
