Time is so weird. It seems like I only just wrote my last article for Hevria and then last night I was hanging out with some friends and a reminder that my new post was due popped up. How did two weeks go by so quickly? Well, we all know that they do. And we… Continue reading Is Age Really Just a Number?
A life of self-promotion is exhausting!
I took a selfie today, and the first thing I noticed was my eyebrows. And not in any way that involves the words “on fleek.”
Seventeen days That’s all the time we have left in Charm City. The movers are coming on the 24th to pack all our possessions into boxes, and they will return on the 25th to load those boxes, and our furniture, into a big, probably enormous, truck. We’ll pack our children and immediately needed possessions into… Continue reading On Endings and Beginnings
Tonight I’ll be on stage. Along with two other accomplished musicians, I’ll be performing classical and klezmer pieces. G-d willing, it’s going to be fabulous. But it almost wouldn’t have happened for me. I almost gave up solo performing entirely.

My freezer was sadly devoid of anything I could pull out in a pinch, so I went to a nearby restaurant to pick up some eats. As… Continue reading Blinded By Emotion
So, it’s Elul. It’s that time of year for introspection, and thoughts of self-improvement, and taking a good, hard look at what’s been working for us and what hasn’t been. Rosh Chodesh came and went, and amid the hubbub of moving and having all my kids home with me all day, I was feeling kind… Continue reading Maybe I Shouldn’t Have Internet in My Home

I used to be obsessed with Words With Friends, but it has been dramatically overtaken by my new obsession with Candy Crush Saga. Even though I play a lot, I haven’t entirely figured out the appeal. Neither has my husband, who… Continue reading Five Things I’ve Learned from Candy Crush Saga

After Shabbos, I had the opportunity to speak with my “Aunt” Ruth (she’s really my mom’s aunt, which makes her, what, my great-aunt? I don’t know. We just call her Aunt Ruth). It was just a quick on-and-off conversation, you know, some how-are-you-doings and how’s-the-weathers. In between the requisite niceties, she mentioned that my mom… Continue reading You’re really a housewife, aren’tcha?
