Date Night

The idea of a date night is to take time, unwind, and reconnect. But, with the never ending schedule of summer camp, little league, and an endless to-do list at home and the office, the only “date” I have is with my Serta perfect sleeper. But tonight, with the laundry scales tipping toward done andContinue reading “Date Night”

That Kind of Morning

It’s that kind of Tuesday morning which really should be a Sunday. It rained all night and now the valley smells rich and mossy. My sheets are freshly washed and perfectly crisp, beconing me back to bed. The pot is brewing with more coffee than I can drink in my hectic scramble to get outContinue reading “That Kind of Morning”

Airport Zen

Park and Ride drop offs; shoes-off-tech-out security screenings; gate change; screaming kids; and octogenarians who have never flown before all collide into one frenetic, frustrating, infuriating pulse during the experience that is airplane travel. But, when you travel as frequently as I do (just got my Platinum Medallion welcome kit, WooHoo!) if you let the airportContinue reading “Airport Zen”

Golden Rays of Parenthood

I look forward at a horizon punctuated by two golden heads pressed together digging in the sand, as once-tiny palms clutch a treasure, to be buried then washed out to sea. This moment, if I am fortunate, will become a treasure as well, clutched in the palm of my memory, brought forward on future days,Continue reading “Golden Rays of Parenthood”

Made in China

It begins, the trip that tests if I’m actually qualified for the job I have. When Sheryl Sandberg told women to use our power to “Lean In” she didn’t address what happens next. How do I go from landing the dream job and impressing my colleagues to actually believing all the hype about myself? DoesContinue reading “Made in China”

Getting Lost to Find Yourself Again

Each of us has a place, a time, or a talent where we find ourselves at our most authentic – the outdoors, an athletic field, plucking at the strings of an heirloom guitar. For me, “Me” exists best when I’m far away from the expectations of who others expect “Me” to be. In China I canContinue reading “Getting Lost to Find Yourself Again”

Cynical Naïvete

I am terminally naïve, in a cynical sort of way. I believe that if someone is nice to my face, they will be so behind my back.  I believe that if I am kind and genuine to others, that they will return the favor. And, I trust in the abundance of the universe to protect me fromContinue reading “Cynical Naïvete”
