Should I stay or should I go now? If I go there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know As written by the Clash in 1981, the song Should I Stay or Should I Go simply states the indecision that comes for some of us…

There’s a common thread amongst even the most experienced performers and rockstars (of which you are surely one), that many still have nerves and experience a bit of stage fright, no matter how many times they have stepped out on stage. It’s actually what keeps them on their toes, alert and aware of their performance. The key to greatness is not…

It was recently pointed out to me by my friend Christen that the words Creative and Reactive have the same exact letters, with only the C in a different position. Hmmmph. I’d never noticed before. And could there be 2 words so very different from one another? Both require thinking and to be generative, but…

Daylight savings time… Much like all the chatter around New Years and making resolutions, I always hear a lot of banter when we have to “spring forward.”  Each year brings out complaints of lost sleep, forgetting to reset manual clocks, missed appointments or getting places late, and a general sense of being tired. Amidst all…

There is something about this Beastie Boys song and it’s rebellious nature that inspires me. Though it was really the original Party Rock Anthem, the idea of fighting for what’s rightfully yours, goes beyond the bad boy mantra. Having the guts to declare what you really want is powerful. There’s a real stand that is made by…

As the umpteenth snowfall of the year is hitting New York this morning, I’m certainly done with this Winter. Though the city tends to recover quicker, where I live on Long Island, there is no relief, and no where to put the snow anymore. We’ve got layer after layer of ice and snow piled up…

Culturally, more than any time I can remember, there seems to be a movement towards constant sharing of good vibes if you will. Social Media has perpetuated this to the point of it being so overdone, I think it goes mostly unnoticed. Each day my Facebook feed is filled with post after post of images…

Recently I spent the day with a friend, Mike, who is in a nursing home with the debilitating disease, Ankylosing Spondylitis, a chronic, inflammatory form of arthritis that mainly affects the spine and pelvis. Due to the severity of his condition, early misdiagnosis, poor treatment and complacency, he will likely be bed ridden for the rest of his life….

With the passing recently of Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy, the media was abuzz using the famous line from his character Mr Spock. Part of our pop culture vernacular since the show aired in the 1960’s, ‘Live Long and Prosper’ became his own epitaph. After seeing the phrase tossed around so much, I got to thinking…

Raising a 13 year old girl is well… interesting. They go from little girl (see pic from 2006) to young lady right before your eyes. It’s actually really challenging to accept at times, but beautiful nonetheless.  As I am sitting here writing this we are having quite a colorful conversation about what she learned in…
