At my Weight Watchers meeting this morning (a blog about Weight Watchers will follow in the upcoming weeks) we were discussing goals. Obviously, most people in the room share a common goal, to lose a certain amount of weight. The discussion centered around how to reach our goal weight.   The consensus was that, in order to reach a hefty goal, one shouldn’t focus on the ultimate goal. Rather, for Weight Watchers purposes, it would be better to set smaller goals, i.e. lose fiv...

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to watch the CNN documentary about Gilda Radner, “Love Gilda.” It was truly an interesting documentary, a film that will stay with me.   One interesting aspect of the film was the use of Gilda’s own letters, journals, and diaries. Current comedians such as Melissa McCarthy and Amy Poehler read Gilda’s own words and thoughts. Hearing her thoughts and words so many years after her death--and hearing the readers’ appreciation of having th...

As tonight is New Years Eve, I am thinking about resolutions. My resolutions, most years, are generally the same, I will try to lose or maintain my goal weight. This year, I really wanted to make a resolution that was different and had some meaning and substance. So here goes.   This year, my resolution is to truly examine my business model and figure out what works and what doesn’t work. Thereafter, I want to fix what doesn’t work and work on replicating what does. For me...

  I was playing around on Instagram as I was procrastinating writing this blog. As I’ve written before I’m a fan of several of The Real Housewives franchises. And, so, I follow Andy Cohen-the creator of The Real Housewives-on Instagram. His Instagram story today resonated with me and, I thought, was especially relevant to Gotham.   The theme of Andy’s Instagram story was that we should all remember that every friend was once a stranger. In thinking about that I began to thi...

For years my children have insisted that our computers, cell phones, and Alexa device listen to our conversation. I have always dismissed and laughed off their “conspiracy theories.” This week something happened that made me question whether they were right.   Yesterday, my stepson and I were discussing a certain designer necklace that he was considering buying for his girlfriend. We discussed two specific varieties of the necklace, the long version and short version. I neve...

As a first year associate at a large firm, I was involved in a case wherein one of the partners of the firm made a mistake. With a lot of work from myself and the partner involved, and a gracious concession from our adversary, the mistake was rectified. I took away a life long lesson from that experience; I never begrudge another attorney for making a mistake because the next mistake may be mine. Last week it was.   All legal filings for divorce cases are done manually in or...

Anyone who knows me knows I love to travel. One of my favorite aspects about travelling is learning about a different culture. I love eating where the “locals” eat, going into their supermarkets, and pharmacies all to see beyond what tourists normally see. I especially love being able to bring home a piece of another lifestyle. Usually, it’s their food.   For example, while in Alaska, I learned and tasted the difference between wild salmon and farmed salmon. As a result, I...

Mitch’s blog this week really resonated with me. He wrote about how it’s no longer the American way to be considerate of others. My own observations have taken his comments one step further, we do not even acknowledge one another anymore.   My children have often remarked that I talk to everyone. And I do. I’ll strike up conversations with bank tellers, check out people at the supermarket, people in elevators, etc. Most people are initially skeptical when I first engage the...

I realized something about myself this week, I am squeamish. My stepson’s girlfriend recently severely cut her hand, requiring a trip to the hospital and numerous stitches. She was telling my husband and myself about her injury and offered to show pictures of the wound, stitches etc. to both of us.   My husband was very interested in the pictures and looked at them with her. They were both fascinated with them, looking at the wound from different angles. My stepson and I cou...

  I spent all of last week in Family Court engaged in a particularly difficult custody trial. As the name implies, Family Court involves family disputes, custody, child support, and neglect and abuse proceedings. Most proceedings in Family Court-other than adoptions-are generally emotional gut wrenching cases.     During a break in my trial, I was sitting in the hallway working on testimony. I paused to look up for a moment and, sitting across from me I saw a woman crying....
