I wanted to add my own thoughts and feelings to Corey’s blog about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As he wrote, there are many others who eloquently wrote beautiful obituaries which I will not repeat. I just wanted to share my perspective.   As a female, Jewish, lawyer, who started her career in the late 1980’s,  I walked behind RBG. While she could not get a job in a New York City law firm-despite being first in her class at Columbia-I started at a large law firm with one female partn...

During this pandemic we have celebrated a lot of milestone birthdays, 25, 30, 85(my mother-in-law) and soon 60 (my husband). In planning these celebrations and working to make them special during the pandemic a material issue has come up each time, what sort of the birthday cake, cake or ice cream?   For my birthday, although it was not a milestone, it was not even a decision, I love cake. More specifically, I love frosting. I look at cake as a vehicle for delivering the fro...

As I write this blog, I am watching my husband prepare and marinade Chilean Sea Bass for our barbecue later this afternoon. My husband has worked on this preparation for years. He has spent a lot of time over the years tweaking the ingredients of the marinade as well as the grilling time. He has perfected both and his Chilean Sea Bass has become a favorite of our family.   Marinated and grilled Chilean Sea Bass has become my husband’s specialty dish. Do you have a specialty ...

This year my husband and I celebrate birthday milestones. My husband's birthday is in October 2020 and mine is July 2021. To celebrate, we had planned two big trips, the first in October, 2020 and the second in October 2021. The first trip was for my husband’s birthday, ten days in Hawaii. The trip in 2012 would have been for mine, a week in Tuscanny. We choose those destinations, in part, because hotels in both locations were available through our time share, thus making tw...

We spent my entire Weight Watcher meeting this morning discussing one topic, breakfast. We discussed the facts and the reality regarding  the adage, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”  We also discussed the pros and cons concerning the different ways people choose to eat breakfast.   I believe in breakfast. I make a concerted effort to eat a healthy breakfast every day during the workweek. Admittedly, my way of eating my breakfast is probably not the healthi...

As many of you know, prior to the pandemic, I habitually attended Weight Watcher (“WW”) Workshops on Saturday mornings. I had attended the meetings for years and, for me, it was integral part of my life’s journey. Given the context of the meetings and, what we each shared, I felt particularly close to my fellow attendees and coach.     Obviously, the pandemic changed all of that. Within two weeks of NY State’s shutdown, I received an email from WW advising that the meetings...

I was extremely apprehensive about doing it, but the circumstances required it. To properly represent a client who was granted an Emergency Order of Protection, I appeared personally in the Family Court, in Nassau County last week. While the appearance could have been made virtually, my client and I decided that a personal appearance was necessary.     From the moment I stepped out of my car, I felt protected. Out of habit, I walked over to the staff and attorney entrance, w...

Since March 23, 2020, when New York State officially closed down, my family has celebrated five birthdays, including my own. Three birthdays have been milestones, my two now twenty-five year old’s and my now thirty year old.     Prior to March 23, 2020, my family would celebrate birthdays by having the person whose birthday it was choose their favorite restaurant for dinner. With significant others and Grandma in tow, we would reserve a table for the ten of us and always h...

Ben’s Thursday blog asked what safety protocols you are following during this time. Today I am asking, what etiquette protocols are you following when others either are not wearing masks or wearing them improperly? Essentially, my question is whether you have become a member of the mask police?     Recently, I have been in three different situations where people were either not wearing masks or wearing them ineffectively. I reacted differently each time. The first time I was...

Prior to the pandemic, I always thought of myself as a low maintenance person with respect to self-care. My self-care regiment was the same for many many years. There were visits to the hair salon every six to eight weeks for a root touch up, highlights and cut, every other Saturday visit to the nail salon for an acrylic manicure and every four months a trip to a different salon to chemically straighten my hair. But, in comparison to some friends’ self-care routines, I alwa...
