Let’s Talk About Life: The Power Of Memories And Relationships In Coping With The Loss Of My Life Partner

Introduction

Some of you may know that I wrote this widely read blog from November 2009 until my last post in August 2019. It wasn’t retirement that stopped me from blogging but rather the need to focus 200% on getting Ron through his second bout with cancer.

While I was blogging regularly, about 80% of […]

Let’s Talk About Life: The Power Of Memories

My 55th Birthday Celebration Weekend

My father passed away in 1995 just before my 50th birthday, and we buried him on my birthday. At his funeral, there was quite a crowd, not because of his prominence but because of all he had done for others in the community where he’d lived all his […]

Passover Memories: Family, Food, And Immigration Policy

Passover Seder At The Obama White House

I’ve been feeling a little weepy this Passover, awash in memories of the epic Seders of my orthodox Jewish childhood. They were epic, not just in the number of people participating, nor in the abundance of wonderful, traditional dishes, but especially in the learning, the discussion, […]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Retail Inventory Management

Blooms Camera Ad Circa 1950

There are times when I really hate being a grownup, when I’d like nothing better than to be the child I never was. When your Mom dies before your sixth birthday, you grow up fast. And when your Jewish family’s economic survival depends on what their small retail […]

Moving On: Tying Up The Loose Ends Of My Career

It’s A Start!

After several years of winding down my career gradually, I’m finally ready to pull the plug 100%. May 21, 2018 will hereafter be known as my retirement date.

I’ve had a really wonderful time, done my best to make a difference, and made some great friends along the way, but […]

Naomi’s Christmas: Restorative Aloneness And A Childhood Spent In Retail

A Page From Bloom’s Camera 1950 Catalog

Ron left the house this morning before dawn, headed to Redmond, OR to spend Christmas with a range of Wallaces. Time moves more slowly when I’m alone, and it’s a very rare treat. Having a few days at home completely on my own hasn’t happened in […]

Reprise: A Great Miracle Happened Here!

Take Your Chances, Win Some Gelt

Chanukah 2017, With My HR Tech Wishes For 2018

Have you ever played the Chanukah game of spin the dreidel? With or without the modified rules derived from “spin the bottle?” Did you know that the four letters, one on each side of the dreidel, make […]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

[I’ll get back to writing about my life after HR tech, about the murders I’m encountering along the way (as in murder mysteries), and about my increasingly portfolio life style, on Monday. But before we get to 2017, here’s the last reflection for 2016, on my childhood in the 50’s. The memories of those early […]

Belated Reflections For Thanksgiving 2016

[If this post looks familiar, you’re not imagining things. I’ve done an annual Thanksgiving post for several years now because giving thanks and counting my blessings becomes more important with each passing year. As the body gets creakier and less obedient, and as pain levels become ever more challenging, writing this post is therapeutic. […]

Prep Now For Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, And The “Days Of Awe” — 5777

[Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday, 10/2, and continues through sundown on Tuesday, 10/4. And thus begins the Hebrew year 5777. Yom Kippur beings at sundown on Tuesday, 10/11 and continues through sundown on Wednesday, 10/12/17.]

Last year’s Jewish High Holy Days occurred right when I was celebrating my 70th birthday, so I […]
