The “Do-Over”

Today is “Black Friday” and I’m sitting in the sunshine on the back deck of my friend’s porch, overlooking the Allegheny Mountains in Holidaysburg, Pennsylvania. This place has to be (I’ve come the believe) one of he most idyllic places on the planet.  I’ve affectionately renamed it “Whoville” because it reminds me so much of the atmosphere and the community depicted in one of my favorite movies, “How The Grinch …

The Happiness Guarantee

Today, I want to write about a couple of things regarding the dating experiences my friends and I are having and I’m not sure yet if they each require their own separate post or not. Apparently, last week’s post “Online Dating and The Importance Of Being All In” didn’t get sent out so perhaps you might want to read that before any of the newer dating posts. The reason I …

What I Learned From 10 days On Tinder, Part Two: Online Dating And The Importance Of Being “All In”

It seems that last week’s post on dating has generated a huge amount of interest in this topic. Over the past week, I’ve had countless conversations with other fellow “Tinderers” who either want some coaching or are willing to share their experience in order to help others navigate through the twists and turns of this crazy, yet potentially enlightening experience. Even non-Tinderers are fascinated with how it works and are …

What I Learned About Dating (Part One): Your Degree Of Success Is Directly Related to How Ready You Are

Today’s entry is somewhat of a hybrid between a blog post and a draft of a chapter of my book. When I last posted, I mentioned that my book will be a series of essays about my personal experience and what I’ve learned on a variety of subjects. I plan to set it up in terms of topics, inspired by one of my favorite books: The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran. …

Help me write my BOOK!

I could write a blog post today and catch you all up on what’s been going on the past few weeks… or I could start the process of writing my book. Yes, you read it right. I’m finally ready write a book. In fact, I feel like I NEED to write it. And, it’s about time. I hope you all appreciate how incredibly courageous it is for me to declare …

AWE-some Days

The timing of this week’s post happens to fall during the 10 days between Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Jewish day of atonement) which are referred to as The Days of Awe. I did not actually know that this period was called that until one of my friends shared it at our Rosh Hashanah dinner on Monday night. I wanted to know more, so I …

The Only Voice Worth Listening To

I’m seriously considering “copping out” and just posting a few links to podcasts and videos that I’ve been listening to and watching this past two weeks. I’m not sure how to describe how I’m feeling, exactly, but it kind of feels like a dense energy is around me. It’s heavy and sluggish and still. It makes me want to stay in bed and just watch TV. If I’m less coherent …

Spread Your Arms and ALWAYS Trust Your Cape!

This week, there are a bunch of things on my mind. At the moment, because I have just sat down to write, the thing I thought about first is the idea of starting to write a different kind of article, in a different kind of format. I have a friend who is helping me with my marketing and social media strategy and he suggested experimenting with a new format, in …

Aligning With Our Soul’s Purpose… What Miracles May Come!

This week’s post will be short(ish)… and a day late, too, apparently :) Friday night, August 14th: It’s been a very busy week and I’m feeling pretty drained and not entirely well. It became clear to me yesterday that I need to take a break and recharge. A lot of wonderful and powerful things are going on and there is some serious momentum building. I feel very strongly and intuitively …

Permission To Be Fluid

Tuesday morning, 10:46 am… the first Tuesday/creative day/blog day that I’ve actually sat down to write my blog in many weeks, perhaps even months. After last week’s post, I had several people offer their support and encouragement, telling me that they understand my need to make room for other creative/professional pursuits in my life. They made suggestions as to how I could structure it so that I could write less …
