The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: In the Groove, Feeling the Positive Effects of Moving My Body.

13th May 2015 | 2 Comments

I’m in the groove. Six weeks of fitness and there’s no sign of me stopping yet. I have been hauling my ass to The Spa at Trump every week, for one hour, three times a week of intense fitness training – intense for a fat broad who hadn’t moved her keister in about six years! [...]


The New York Chronicles: Social Media

2nd June 2013 | 0 Comments

We are entering the final stretch. My Musical Tribute to Nina Simone at City Winery NY is just a month away. I have gone through all kinds of panic over this show. Mostly, I have been traumatized over ticket sales but I have done much work thus far to promote this show. It has been [...]


You Better Carry That Weight

22nd March 2012 | 1 Comment

Weird day today. A friend, a good friend who I’ve known for decades expressed “worry” that I might drop dead from being fat. Actually she said: “I worry about you” and then proceeded to tell me that another friend wanted to do an “intervention” which I later found out was not true. It was handled [...]


Been meaning to write but inexplicably unable to do so

25th May 2011 | 0 Comments

The title of this blog is taken from one of my favorite greeting cards. I wrote a different title back in March, shortly after my last post and saved it as a draft. The title was The Ugly Truth. Just a title no content. It’s probably better that I didn’t post it. I can’t really [...]

Turning Out the Drake!

3rd May 2010 | 5 Comments

Wow!!  Tonight was wonderful.  The thing that made it so great was the turnout of my friends and family. There were folks in attendance from every aspect of my life: day jobs from the 80′s, college, college friend’s parents, people I’d taken classes with, shopped with, partied with, done events for – you name it. [...]


I Can’t Blog About That!

2nd May 2010 | 5 Comments

So, you may have wondered where I’ve been for the past few weeks.  I’ve been here having all kinds of fun and confusing times but you know what?  Thanks to Facebook  -  I can’t blog about it.  Well, I could blog about it but the characters involved are so distinct and such that I would [...]


Small World, Documentary Filmmakers & Taxi Cabs

17th March 2010 | 0 Comments

Photo: “taxi” by anna kipervaser – On Look Films Sometimes something as random as the taxi you hail can open up a world of new friendship, conversation and interconnection. I got into a conversation with my cab driver – found out he was a musician (he was playing his band’s lovely music on the cab [...]


ain’t nothing but a number

21st September 2009 | 7 Comments

“Age ain’t nothing but a number.” That’s what a twenty something said to me last week. I laughed. And as I glanced around the tavern and bopped to the music ( a “top forty” tune that I loved singing with my band) I realized that maybe it was true. “You’re as young as you feel!” [...]
