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, […]

The Cavalry Isn’t Coming: “We The People” Are Our Only Defense

There was always the moment, in those old Westerns, when the settler families, perhaps led by John Wayne, realized that the Cavalry weren’t going to get there in time to save them from the outlaw gang which was intent on raping their women, stealing their horses, killing them, and burning to the ground everything that […]

We Cannot Be Paralyzed By Our Fears!

I cried myself to sleep last night, more discouraged about America than I could ever remember. We worked so hard to get to an enviable place in our pursuit of that more perfect union, to a level of human and civil rights, of social justice and the rule of law, which was the envy of […]

Life Explained: A 3-Legged Stool

I’ve never understood people who take full credit for their accomplishments, as though getting top grades, running the fastest mile, being the most productive developer on the team, exceeding sales targets or alphabetizing by author and within genre your thousands of physical, wonderful to hold, books was a solo performance. And I’ll admit to cringing […]

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 […]

Strategic Planning Is A Mindset!

Strategic planning is a mindset which can be applied to great swaths of your life. If you’re willing to do the heavy lifting, just like in business, strategic planning provides much improved outcomes.

With all of my exciting plans for Christmas and New Year’s taking a back seat to my second head/chest cold of […]

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. […]

Remembering 9/11/2001: Let’s Give ’em Hell!

For this 15th anniversary of jihadist Islam’s declaration of war on the United States, I wanted to express my anger at what this war has cost all of us in the loss of privacy and freedom as well as in human lives and treasure. It’s a war whose enemy combatants wear no recognizable uniforms, dwell […]
