  Confession: I watched all 62 episodes of Breaking Bad in approximately 8 days.  I know, I know. Don’t judge me. I’ve been told on occasion over the years that I would like the show and have been encouraged to watch it, but I never took the time to do so. With the lull in […]

It’s official…I miss the beach.  It’s one thing to feel like you need a little break, but today my client reminded me why I need to schedule a beach getaway.  I encouraged her to take time for herself and revisit the things that may bring her joy and she has been following my suggestions.  Her […]

Sports, Classic Soul Music, and a Sense of Humor.  These 3 things seem relatively random, but anyone who knows my father well, will recognize him as the common thread. One of my fondest, yet excruciating, childhood memories is driving from Maryland to Nebraska in a Lincoln town car.  In 1985, my father was inducted into […]

At some point, we have all seen the old adage at play. Opposites Attract. She likes the social scene, a mingler, a “butterfly” while… He prefers a movie night on the couch, reserved type, not much for parties.

Drummers At Speed Street Festival: Flattery at its best!

Last weekend I was at the Speed Street Festival in Uptown Charlotte watching these two talented young drummers, and an unexpected moment occurred.  This is a MUST WATCH moment of a little boy’s impression of the drumming.  They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this just took the cake!  You just never […]

It’s 6pm on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.  All week, I’ve been contemplating a drive back to Maryland to see my family and friends.  Without pre-planning to take the day off and hit the road Thursday evening, I’m just getting home from work.  The task before me:  pack clothes for the weekend, fill up […]
