Yep! It’s true! Today I am 37. It feels great. I’m probably gonna go out and buy some shoes. The closer I get to 40 the more excited I get about life. It really does get better. However, society sends aging women some seriously messed up messages. Like what happened yesterday: But whatever. I’ll continue… Continue reading It’s My Birthday!
It has been so busy! And continues to be busy! But because my drive to procrastinate Yom Tov prep is so strong, I wanted to take a quick minute to let you all know about a few exciting/interesting things I’ve found/was involved with this month. And then we can move right into Yom Tov and then… Continue reading Of Interest – May 2017
I was thinking about naming this piece “Inside the Mind of This Particular Creative Person,” but with SEO and all that I figured I’d go with the more generic title. That’s one little peek inside my creative process. Over at Hevria this week, I took a long, long look at all the things that go… Continue reading Inside the Mind of A Creative Person
About three-and-a-half years ago, we were dealing with a serious stink bug infestation. I posted about it (and other fun homeownership stuff) here.

I’ve been writing regularly for long enough now (over a decade!) that you might think I never deal with self-doubt or critical thoughts or insecurities or writer’s block. Bahahahahaha. I deal with all of that, and sometimes (a lot of the time?), the more “successful” pieces I write, the more pressure I put on myself… Continue reading How To Manage Your Inner Critic
A life of self-promotion is exhausting!
What a month! At the end of February I got to perform in the In Harmony concert – that’s the women’s band that I was in last time we lived in Cleveland, and the same band that I drove six hours to perform with a couple years ago. They had another concert, and I was… Continue reading FYI Magazine and A Hevria Article
Let’s start off the year (the Gregorian year, whatever, you know what I mean) with some interesting links, a review, and a giveaway! Not in that order, though.
Last year, when we were in the peculiar limbo of knowing we were moving back to Cleveland but not having moved yet, I watched my Facebook feed with dismay as the snow piled up and up and up and up and… you get the idea. It snows a lot in Cleveland (the lake effect, no, not… Continue reading This Winter Will Not Defeat Me!!
If you follow this blog’s Facebook page, or have read my Of Interest posts, you’ll see that I’ve shared posts from Hevria more than a few times. This community of Jewish creators is such a great space, and, full disclosure, I was super bummed to not be a part of it when it started. But… Continue reading Coming Out of the Convert Closet
