Adventures in a Little-Box Lifestyle

Rolling around the aisles of big-box stores has become a norm in America, but it is not my norm. Not by a long shot. I live in an urban environment where not only would I have no way of getting most of the “big” boxes home, I wouldn’t have anywhere to store them if I did. This is why putting me in one of those stores with my mother in her sprawling suburban area can be the perfect setting for an adventure bordering on a sitcom. The 52-year-old free spirit writer and the 77-year-old feisty retiree. “Yes, Mom, those are

Living Right Now

Once recent afternoon I walked the two blocks to my waterfront park for a work break. The Hudson River beckons most days and I strive to never take it for granted. I work from home and try to always step away from the computer after a particularly long stretch of writing, researching or coaching. It’s autumn in the Northeast and this was one of those gray days where it never rained even though it looked like it might; the sun was trying to peek through the clouds. I grabbed my recently acquired volume of the Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson

Today we’re excited to hear a bit more from him about his adventures:  What has been your favorite part of the tour?

In the mornings we make our favorite cup of coffee and look out the window of the

One Easy Step to Happy

It was another seemingly random poster on social media. You know, the ones that combine a quote or clever saying with an image. I typically skim them; they have a fraction of a second to grab my attention or I’m on to the next thing. “Plan a trip, but don’t take it.” That’s what caught my eye. It was one sentence in a list – 10 Scientific Ways to be Happy. Really? Happy? This little exercise? I am reading this in a week where I am, once again, visualizing where I might go next. Come to think of it, I

The Small, Small World

An American friend goes to Abu Dhabi for a year and runs into someone who knows her dear friend back in the States. I am watching The Voice on television and realize there are two people in my Facebook feed who have friends in the show’s national competition. I go see an off-Broadway play about poet Emily Dickinson and it becomes clear I have some meaningful things in common with her. It’s a small world, as the song goes. And then I watch Homeland and the world seems so vast. Many of my fellow Americans are tangled in covert operations
