“Gratitude is a divine emotion: it fills the heart, but not to bursting; it warms it, but not to fever.” – Charlotte Bronte *Cue the self help Instagram posts and love and light references.* As the holiday season approaches, starting with Thanksgiving, most carbon based human beings reflect on the past year going into the […]

Passing The Threshold…

“Normality is a paved road; It’s comfortable to walk but no flowers grow.” – Vincent Van Gogh Discomfort- pretty sure this term is the main descriptor we can all agree on over the past 20 plus months. It’s has traumatized our thinking, our goals and more importantly our complexion. Adulting has reached a pinnacle for […]

Finding Meaning in 2021

A Note on FEAR

Mark Twain once said “Courage is either the resistance or mastery of fear, not absence of fear.” Fast forward to 2020, the life we knew in 2019 is now a long forgotten pipe dream. A pandemic has been affecting any and all in its wake. Death seems to be lingering on every street corner. In […]

The Age of Corona: A Reflection

Sometime ago, I can remember an ad campaign from Corona Beer stating “find your beach.” Such an amazing concept and one which I did not object. Flashforward to the year 2020. Everyone is in quarantine, people are fighting in public over toilet paper, and Gov. Cuomo is one of the main beacons of hope for […]
