Choose Love. Choose Hope.

2nd October 2017 | 0 Comments

We must not let the horrors of humanity ruin us. There is so much negativity buzzing around us, so much hate and lack of empathy – yet there is more than a small bit of good still out there. We create it every time we show empathy for others. There is no sense in what [...]


Give In to Hope and Love.

23rd May 2017 | 0 Comments

I am so inspired and moved by people who get past the horrible headlines and just continue their work of helping others. It’s an honorable calling. The mess that we witness every day makes some of us piss and moan but it also motivates us all to care. It is easy to criticize and berate [...]

I am not spending another minute fussing about this election. Today, I am going to spread love and laughter and continue building excitement for my show tomorrow night at City Winery Chicago. (shameless plug: I sing Nina Simone at City Winery, showtime is 8pm I will include a link for tickets) It’s what I do. [...]


Say something!

Sharing time with friends and loved ones is the simplest gift to give to yourself and others. These relationships sometimes go in cycles. Sometimes family and friends become estranged. If you have anger towards someone but you know that deep down it stems from them being a less than perfect person to you (i.e. a [...]

This is some scary stuff. Oftentimes, I shrug these things off, perhaps foolishly, but this time, so soon after the many attacks on innocents around the globe, I am worried, saddened – aware. But, even as the real haters of the world continue to threaten us, and challenge our joy of life, I will continue [...]


Love and Peace. (My Thoughts after the Second Paris Attack)

It’s Sunday morning and I have nothing to complain about and much to be thankful for. Blessed Be! Love and Peace is what is important to us all. And sharing the burden of mourning for ALL who have suffered is what we should be doing.You can politicize and lay blame all you want. It serves [...]


Life turns.

21st October 2015 | 0 Comments

Life turns on a dime. One friend experienced a great triumph, one friend lost everything in a fire, a baby is born, someone loses a loved one, one friend receives a serious diagnosis, one is thrilled over a cure. We are all in this together and the one thing besides our Humanity that holds us [...]


Her Heart is Broken.

10th September 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s been a long time since I felt heartbreak but I am reliving it right now with someone who is dear to my heart. Talk about feeling helpless. All my wise words mean nothing, I know this because I heard them from others long ago and I don’t recall them actually being a balm. Oh! [...]


Hope.

16th April 2013 | 0 Comments

I sit in my home tonight, safe and comfortable. I just spent an hour or so looking at news reports in the aftermath of today’s tragedy in Boston. I find solace when I see people helping others – from the trained emergency respondents to the able bodied folks who aided others, to the prayers and [...]


I Can’t Blog About That!
