#GIVINGTUESDAY

#GIVINGTUESDAY

Come on people  – I’m not too impressed here. Well, I’m impressed with some people who sent coats over right away. People who sent me an email and said they already gave their coats  – which is swell as long as people get what they need. I appreciate people contacting me and… Read More

GIVING BACK

GIVING BACK

Tomorrow is declared #GIVINGTUESDAY  but I thought I would jump start it today. Every day should be #GIVINGDAY especially this time of year. So much need. I fear very soon so much more. Our family always gives coats to the New York Cares Coat Drive.  I dive into all the closets and… Read More

EXHAUSTION

EXHAUSTION

It’s been too long a week. I’m sort of out of words.  I will regroup over the weekend. Each day I am more horrified by his choices and actions. But for now I will show you how the neighborhood has only gotten worse. Unlivable. Everyone nervous, pissed off and displaced. He should get… Read More

UNLEASHED HATRED

UNLEASHED HATRED

  I was going to write something uplifting today.  But I’ve spent much of it both fending off hateful emails from some people, (mostly from people over at Gratitude and Trust) which oddly did not surprise me in the least. I was pretty much expecting it. But when you write on the… Read More

DEALING WITH PTSD – PRESIDENT TRUMP STRESS DISORDER

DEALING WITH PTSD – PRESIDENT TRUMP STRESS DISORDER

  There are two kinds of people walking around America these days, those who are happy and feel like they have won some big prize and then there are the ones suffering from anxiety, fear, anger and stress. You can tell the latter easily, there is a look in the eye, a… Read More

WORDS MATTER

WORDS MATTER

It’s amazing how many incendiary words,  insulting racist comments and meancing threats have been consistently thrown about by our  president elect for all these months – yet they have somehow  been forgotten. Sadly, for many, words and ideas don’t seem to matter. Yet for others, myself included, they mean a lot. As all of you… Read More

LEONARD COHEN – THE BEST OF THE BEST

LEONARD COHEN – THE BEST OF THE BEST

No question this is a week of opinion spouting. In my opinion, tonight we lost the greatest songwriter and sexiest, most soulful singer of our generation. He didn’t get the Nobel Prize. He wasn’t knighted by the Queen, but for me he was the best of the best. I’ve only cried twice… Read More

THE DAY BEFORE THE NIGHT

THE DAY BEFORE THE NIGHT

  I walked around all day yesterday writing a blog in my head.  That’s often the way I do it. Anyway, the blog I was writing was my election day blog.   My take on this seemingly endless shitty, mean spirited, mug slinging, Twighlight Zone episode of an election.  The election that got… Read More

WE MUST TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT SEXUAL ABUSE

WE MUST TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT SEXUAL ABUSE

  In this week’s episodes of AS THE ELECTION TURNS a hugely important issue has entered the conversation.  While many say it does not happen that often, the truth is, women are the victims of sexual predators more often than you can possibly imagine. Sexual predators vary in their violence and levels… Read More

MORE MILAN

MORE MILAN

I always make meticulous lists of the things I want to do when we travel. I often buy museum tickets in advance.    I have the names and addresses of stores I want to visit. I usually make restaurant reservations before we leave and I know the parts of town I want to… Read More

WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY THE MICE WILL EAT CHEESE

WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY THE MICE WILL EAT CHEESE

  Glenn left for the South Tyrol at six am yesterday, leaving Lucy and me 36 hours alone to play in Milan. For months Lucy has been talking about Bar Luce with oh-so-hip café in the Fondazione Prada. I have been wanting to see the Fondazione Prada since it opened.  Now, what I was… Read More

BACK ON THE ROAD – MILAN

BACK ON THE ROAD – MILAN

  I find it hard to believe, but people write in and say they miss the blogs. I know I have backed way off  blogging  the last – yikes – year.  But I have been working hard on a TV project and frankly, in line with my Kardashian blog the other day… Read More

DON’ T BLAME IT ON PARIS

DON’ T BLAME IT ON PARIS

I know Kim Kardashian bashing is considered by some to be very uncool this week; In light of the poor girls being bound and gagged and robbed in her posh, hidden – everyone seemed to know where it was Paris apartment. But Karl Lagerfeld spoke up first for those of us who… Read More

THE TOMATO WHISPERER

THE TOMATO WHISPERER

For me summer is about very specific things, one of them is farm stands. I know every city now has a Farmer’s Market, but there is nothing quite like pulling over on the side of the road and filling your trunk with fresh produce. There are many wonderful stands out here in… Read More

DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE

DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE

These are the words I have been whispering to my thirteen-and-a-half-year-old bulldog Ramu Gupta for the last three months. I would say that, and on nights when I was really confused I would say,  “If you’re ready please give me a readable sign.” It got to the point where I was secretly… Read More
