The Jewish Standard’s Joanne Palmer covers UnPregnant Pause

I worked for the Standard for a number of years and had a great experience there. I interviewed local heroes, outstanding students, and some national as well as international figures. They sent me to interview Leah Rabin and Mario Cuomo! Those were exciting conversations. And now their editor-in-chief, Joanne Palmer, has interviewed me!

Thanks to Joanne for writing a really lovely piece. It’s nice to be back in The Jewish Standard again. Read it here

Check out my blogpost for December, 2015 Read this

This was the kind of post that just pours out. Every year, around the holidays, I take stock of who and what I am most grateful for. I review the list of friends who have grown dearer and examine why some have drifted away. I take the time to look back in December, before I step into the new year and move forward.

Annie & Me reflects a relationship I continually re-examine and serves as a reminder that not everyone wants the same thing out of a friendship. It is a good lesson for me.

I had a great conversation with host Alice Bloom on A Town and Village… Two. Check out the show:

“Produced and hosted by Alice Bloom, A Town and Village Two is a half hour interview format featuring leaders in the arts, education, business and public service; and, organizations that enhance the quality of life in our communities.

Call Me Granny, Huffpo50 blogpost

I had so much fun writing this piece. Being a grandma really takes me back to my early days as a mom- but with more sleep and sit-down meals.

I finally understand why fertility ends at a certain point. You just CAN’T do it full time with creaking knees and achy backs. And yes- needing reading glasses to see the Baby Tylenol label!

Each stage of life has its joys (and sorrows) and I am soaking up the pleasures of being a grandmother.
