  This blog is not about politics. It’s about  the right-or the decision-to speak about politics.       It’s now “awards season” in the entertainment industry. We have had the Golden Globe Awards, SAG Awards, and Grammys. At the beginning of the Golden Globe Awards host Ricky Gervais told the celebrities to without the political commentary from their speeches, as “no wanted to hear what they had to say.” Many of the award winners, such as Patricia Arquette and Michelle Willia...

  Lately, a lot of my inspiration for my blogs have come from my Weight Watchers meetings. One of the topics we have discussed recently was the importance of relaxation. That topic became relevant last week during a lunchtime discussion at work.       I was having lunch with three other attorneys. During our meal, I asked what their plans were for the coming three-day weekend. One attorney responded that he would be coming to the office on Saturday while the other mentioned t...

  During this time of the year a lot of people talk about or write about their resolutions. Anyone who knows me knows that every year I make the same resolution, I’m going to watch my weight. This year I gave a lot of thought to my resolution and what propensities of mine I really wanted to work on changing. I came up with two.       First, I resolved to try to watch my language, that being, to control my cursing. That lasted until I was back in my office on January 2, 2020. ...

  My Mom used to say quite often, “Think before you speak.” She would go into further detail with, “Is it necessary?” “Is it kind?”           I’ve been thinking a lot about my Mom’s advice lately. Both for myself and other people. We now live in an age where people share their most private thoughts and words on the internet and social media. Or where we easily communicate through text or email. And it appears that often there is no thought given to the effect one's words may ...

Television is getting very confusing. First there was basic television, channels two through thirteen. Then basic cable came along which added several more channels. After that we got premium cable which added about eight hundred more channels (although I still can’t find anything to watch on cable) as well as pay per view movies and events.   Now we have subscription networks. First, I was told we had subscribed to NetFlix. I believe it was because the kids wanted it. Then ...

  The other evening, while at a networking function, I told a story about a recent court appearance. Inadvertently, and for the first time ever, I blurted out the word “f##k,” while on the record. The word would have been perfect in context under any other circumstances but, clearly, inappropriate in court.       The conversation around the table was very interesting. Almost everyone conceded that, in many circumstances, it’s a perfectly descriptive word. And several people...

  My sister-in-law--whom I love-- and I were together last weekend. She was wearing a beautiful white sweater with a white vest. I had on a light grey sweater.       By the end of the evening, my grey sweater was stained in two places. My sister-in-law’s sweater, however, looked as fresh and clean as it did when she first walked into the room.       There must be a trick to wearing white. I, clearly, do not know what it is. Do you? Can you wear white? ...

  On the way back to the office from court last week, I decided to do a quick stop at the grocery store. I needed two items for home and wanted to multitask by also picking up something for lunch. While the store was crowded, I thought I could just get on the Express Line with my three items and be out of the store within minutes. I was wrong.       At the Express Line there was a sign that clearly read, “Fifteen items only.” As I waited impatiently in the Express Line, I loo...

  Fred has an expression that he often uses that I love, “Let your freak flag fly.” To me, it means that we should freely embrace our individuality.       I have mentioned, in prior blogs, that I enjoy science fiction. Recently, I was in Disney and was able to go The Star Wars exhibit, The Galaxy’s Edge. We were also lucky enough to get on the premier ride, The Millennium Falcon. That morning, I “piloted” a space ship trying to save precious cargo for the Resistance, roamed ...

  This week I have been thinking a lot about, and discussing, trust and forgiveness. My good friend’s significant other, whom she has been with for a very long time, did something that violated her trust (no he did not cheat on her). Since then he has shown genuine remorse and significant introspection about the nature of his actions and why they were wrong.     Now he is looking to my friend to forgive him. And that’s why the interplay of trust and forgiveness have dominat...
