  The political issues involved in this topic aside, I am unsure about how I feel about Uber as a service. For the longest time I rebelled against Uber. I went to law school in New York City and always prided myself in my ability to easily hail a cab. While I also use subways often, yellow cabs were always my “go to” for short trips in the city.     When my children and friends started using Uber, I was resistant, remaining loyal to my yellow cabs. Recently, on a trip to La...

A year ago, I boasted about what made this Sunday blog beat more special than any other day; that applies even if comments come by less often compared to some other days. When certain specials days occur with regularity on a Sunday, what’s not to complain. I certainly voice no objection that I can share a special Happy Mother’s Day wish to to all the special ladies, including the most special and Sweet mom in my life.   We celebrated Mother’s Day eve by taking in an interesti...

Nearly 300 people have died following the world’s biggest-ever single-day election, which took place last month in Indonesia—not through protests or civil unrest, but exhaustion.   272 people who were counting collapsed from fatigue-related illness in the 10 days following the country’s vote in April and an additional 1,878 took ill.   What made this the largest single-day election in human history is that 80% of the Indonesia's eligible citizens voted. This means 150 million...

On Monday I underwent my annual eye examination. It is always a pleasant experience, as my doctor is a fellow Roslyn High School graduate, Leslie Goldberg.  Leslie is a World Class ophthalmologist and even a better person, making this doctor's office visit something to look forward to. Being who I am, I was apprehensive as to the condition of my eyes and being competitive, I tried so hard to see and recognize those little letters. I’m happy to report that my eyes are just abo...

There is an exhibit at the Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust on Battery Place in New York City that is not-to-be-missed. “Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.” is not only compelling but it draws you in to, in the words of the promotional brochure, “an unparalleled opportunity to confront the singular face of human evil - one that arose not long ago and not far away.” It is, above all else, relevant. And, as you leave the exhibit, you are inspir...

I like stories. Another great day to be OUTTA the office. Last week I ventured up to a little town in northern New Jersey called Ramsey. Have you ever been? It reminded me of a northeast version of Mayberry. Small town, very walkable. Tiny shops and beautiful people strolling about. Lots of kids and the staple pizza shop, serving as a community gathering place. I was visiting a client in northern New Jersey to go over an estate planning issue that had surfaced. My primary ...

  I don’t really like the title of my blog but here’s what’s on my mind. Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and this is the first time that neither of my children will be with me. My daughter is across the world working in India and my son is a lot closer but working hard heading into finals. I am super proud of both. Don’t get me wrong. I know that I will have a lovely day spending time with my own mother, my sister and her family. I know that I will hear from both ...

  My son recently broke up with his longtime girlfriend. I have been talking to him endlessly to help him through the process of healing from the hurt. In doing so, I have realized that it is much more difficult for the kids of today to break that connection and begin to move forward.     When I was young, when a relationship ended, you just stopped calling the other person or seeing one another. And, once you did so, you could begin moving on. Today, young people not only...

This year Earth Day passed without a Gotham Green Awards® advancing it. Even though I was visiting mom in Florida (while Shelly and Marisa visited Paris), Earth Day 2019 did not pass without a constructive message I could release, tweet and post to Facebook and LinkedIn. It just involved bus public transit. Gotham Green® this year held its awards program on May Day, joint with Gotham Construction.   Gotham Green® annually recognizes those who make a difference in our communi...

At 51,000 feet one can begin to discern the curvature of our planet’s surface . From far left to far right you can see 650 miles . The sky is deep blue and the air is still . And so it was 4 years ago as I commanded a Gulfstream Five from Los Angeles to London . 5000 miles on a Great Circle route . Nine hours . A presence . A muffled awareness . A bright ball of light . First on port side . My side . Next straight ahead . Next starboard side . Effortless . Zooming ahead and...

How often do you wish you could be in two places at the same time? Last weekend, we were supposed to be in Washington for an Crafts Fair and in New York City for the Annual Gathering of Holocaust Remembrance. We had a tradition of attending both; however, this year both fell on the same weekend. We stayed in New York and attended the Annual Gathering. We lit a candle with Mom. When faced with being in two places at the same time, we have to make a choice. Sometimes, we have...

This is a blog of few words because I can’t find the words. Pittsburgh, New Zealand, Poway. And that’s the short list. Are we growing numb to ever burgeoning evidence of unabashed hatred? Does this list really need to continue to grow? Must houses of worship create armed barriers so that their congregants can worship without fear of facing a gunman? Really, no words. ...

  As some of you may know, my daughter had been in the hospital for several weeks. She’s a soccer goalkeeper and broke her femur while playing (yes, she made the save). Her injury entailed extensive surgery plus numerous weeks of rehabilitation.     Early one evening, I arrived at the hospital, tired, stressed, and sad. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a small group of medical professionals had gathered in the lot. Thinking there was a medical emergency in the lo...

Just concluded a week of exploration. Sort of. Marisa and Shelly explored Paris. The dad and husband visited mom in Florida. So while my daughter and wife took in The Louvre, The Musée d’Orsay, Eifel Tower and Versailles and its adjoining villas and getaway spots, between various appointments for mom, I found some time to explore where friends made their home away from home.   And checking out homes as more friends re-settle or opt to “winter” around South Florida in or proxi...
