Sometimes when I write a piece, I know exactly what I want to say, exactly where to start, where to go and how to wrap it up. Other times, I’ll have a vague idea and after a couple of drafts, a clear vision will form and then I’ll finish it up. This week, I started… Continue reading Love, True Love
I have less than zero time to do this post, but in the spirit of fully utilizing this potent month, here is a link to my Hevria post today, part of Elul’s theme of Love & Fear. Hevria is extending this theme to everyone and anyone who feels like participating, and you can share your… Continue reading It’s Elul!
My kids’ school has this excellent program called “Social Skills.” It teaches them very useful concepts like not interrupting, “friendly talk,” “brave talk,” and other ways of learning how to be in the world, how to deal with their feelings in a healthy way. I love this program because it presents these concepts to kids in… Continue reading You Are Doing Just Fine

It has been ages and ages since I last wrote about music (here’s the most recent post). Thanks to Sarah’s comment on the blog’s Facebook page sharing that she liked my posts with musical clips, and hoped I would do more, I’m doing more! This one’s for you, Sarah. I’ve also been greatly enjoying Sarah Zadok’s… Continue reading Music for Fall Days

I “met” Meredith when she popped over to my blog one day from SITS. Her blog, Perfection Pending, is one I can really relate to, as I’ve written more than a few times about coming to terms with my own wonderful imperfection. So, when I saw that Meredith had a guest post series encouraging mothers… Continue reading How Motherhood Has Changed Me
