Is Your Kid Going Away To College?

Aug 18, 2016

Is your kid going away to college? It’s getting close, isn’t it? That back-to-school time of year when you’re watching all the school supplies go on sale, feeling the frenzy of finishing all the last minute summer to-do bucket lists and wondering how you’re going to get your kids up and ready for that early...

BlogHer 16 – A Photo Story From Los Angeles

Aug 9, 2016

Last week I pushed myself out of my introverted comfort zone and went to BlogHer 16 in Los Angeles. It’s not easy for me to go to a huge conference, share a room with women I don’t know, and spend four days surrounded by thousands of people with very little alone time; you can...

You Should Go Home To Yourself

Jul 12, 2016

“You should go home to your hermitage; it is inside you. Close the doors, light the fire, and make it cozy again. That is what I call ‘taking refuge in the island of self.’ If you don’t go home to yourself, you continue to lose yourself. You destroy yourself and you destroy people around you,...

Aren’t You Tired Of Seeing People Die?

Jul 7, 2016

White America, aren’t you tired of seeing people die? I made a mistake of watching the news today. I tuned in to see the first videos released of Alton Sterling being put to the ground and shot to death I made a mistake of watching the news to see his widow behind a podium...

To Look At Life As It Is

Jun 30, 2016

Summers have always been my ‘mommy’ time. I’ve never taught summer school; I’ve always looked at my time away from the classroom as time to focus on my kids, primarily, and also to catch up on all the other life stuff I push off between August to June. These 8 weeks of no students...

Use Wisdom Not Weapons To End Gun Violence

Jun 23, 2016

“Use wisdom, not weapons”, he pleaded to the crowd gathered in front of the California state Capitol building to end gun violence this morning. Not surprisingly, he elicited big cheers from his words – the crowd was comprised of moms, kids, and a few dads from Moms Demand Action and Everytown For Gun Safety, and...

Tell Me, What Do People Thank You For?

Jun 21, 2016

I’m a huge believer in gratitude. It’s actually had a huge, transformative impact on my life in the last several years, and gratitude makes its way into my writing with great frequency. Every morning I practice rituals – savoring a cup of coffee quietly, listening to the birds outside; setting silent intentions for the...

Just Like The Orlando Victims – On The Cusp Of Adulthood

Jun 16, 2016

“Mom, does it cost money to get checks?” I received this millennial-surprise text from my daughter today – honestly, I didn’t even know millennials used checks. I thought that was sort of taboo for the digital generation, but apparently not. She turned twenty this month, and is spending her first summer in an apartment...

I’m Just Feeling Sad Today

Jun 13, 2016

I couldn’t get out of bed this morning. It wasn’t because it’s my first official day of vacation, or because I stayed up too late last night – my days of all nighters are long gone, to be sure. The air was cool, the mockingbirds were announcing the dawn, and I knew my children...

My Transformation Into Wholeness

May 30, 2016

Two little girls nestled into their father in the pew in front of me, catching my eye as they jostled for position. The littlest one, no more than two years old, bounced on her daddy’s sturdy leg while her older sister, closer to five, curled her chubby fingers around his arm. The littlest one,...
