When I was growing up I never had an Atari. The first time I ever played tetris or PacMan was when I was hopelessly bored and on bedrest with twins. I guess my parents never thought it was important, or didn’t want me to begin life as a couch potato. Nevertheless I made it through […]
The Forgiving Nature of Yoga
Blame it on the holidays, stress or just plain lack of energy but it seems that when time limits are stretched and the world picks up speed the first thing I give up is my yoga class. I don’t like it and I suffer the consequences of an irritable bowel, an irritable mind, lack of […]

Thinking about Breast Cancer
I believe that at one point or another all women think about breast cancer. A little over a year ago a very admired and treasured friend of mind found out that she had breast cancer. For a year before her diagnosis she tried to ignore the signs and symptoms. The voice in her head simply […]
