Oh Father Time. Where have you gone.

What have you left to share.

Where am I going why am I here. 

Where art though paradise that was promised.

Lost in a fire, like the forest. 
Where was the feast I had hoped to devour.

All the tastes had soured. 
The love of life and the life I love. This couldn't be what was ordained from above. 

The decade collected many lives. Long and sudden goodbyes. 
Invading my lungs. A decade to catch...

Pearl of the Post: Pillars of Faith

Somewhere at the crossroads of faith, it clicked. It came into focus.

The vision I've held since first holding my son as a baby. The vision most Jewish moms see - your son as a Bar Mitzvah.

In my version, I've always pictured him standing at the Western Wall draped in his Great Grandfather's Tallit. 

That image stuck in my mind for 12 years, through diapers and pre-school, through madness o...

Pearl of the Post: Carry the Love

Being a Northeastern born and raised chick, I can count on one hand plus a finger how many times I’ve been skiing. It just wasn't my family's thing, it was a Cohen family thing.;) 

It's not for want of trying, I’ve tried. I’ve taken lessons, done the bunny slopes, geared up on the latest in ski fashion and even went so far as take private lessons in the adults only part of Deer Valley,...

Pearl of the film: Everything is Possible

"Everything is Possible, even the Impossible" is a pearl Mary Poppins imparts upon the next generation of Banks children.

I've always loved the positive possibility of this pearl as a contrast to our cold hard world of the one percent.

Mary Poppins Returns is the sequel to the 1964 classic movie based upon the novels by PL Travers. Almost 60 years in real life and 20 in Mary Poppins chron...

Pearl of the film: YOU are Worthy 

Twas invited to an advance screening of the new movie "Ben is Back" hosted by The Moms with a post film discussion with actress Rachel Bay Jones.

I was not compensated for this post beyond the screening passes and invitation to view the Moms Marketplace.

"Ben is Back" revolves around the pearl of having hope and feeling hopeless. It's a tough movie to watch, especially as a mother.

Feeling uber grateful for the year ahead.

It's the first year in a decade where I feel room to breathe. Room to grow and embrace the year to come vs. brace for the year ahead. 

My mom once shared how during my Bat Mitzvah year, she remembered standing at the Bima with me, my dad and sister and feeling established as a family.

I feel what she means.

This past year I cocooned around my family and spent the time to re-connect and...

Over the years, I've come to know this pearl as true in that when you support others in

manifesting their dreams, yours suddenly come true.

For the past couple of months I played Miss Trish’s Wing Woman for the Danceworks NY Grand Opening Party.

A lil dance studio which Trish took over 6 years ago and built up by hustling with humility. It's since become an integral part of our lives and community. It's a local love story to s...

Pearl of the Post: Finding Home

The choices we make for our kids can take them in so many directions. Ultimately, we want to set them on a road where they truly find themselves and develop self love, appreciation, respect and resiliency. 

I haven't always given him the best directions and we've taken many wrong turns. We help them course correct, try new paths and remember their way home. 

There's no one size fits all path. Each...

Pearl of the Post: Healing the Divide

Our family trip this summer was to the historic town of Gettysburg, PA.

It was my moms idea for my dad to take my son. My dad is like, Mr. Captain General Major Father Sir, and my son is like his lil prodigy. 

Somehow we all got roped into going. I was rolling my eyes and held low expectations of the trip. But I got to tell you, it was a great trip. Albeit in a dorky cool kind of wa...
