What kind of reaction do we have when we are given a gift?

A gift is usually a surprise.  For me, I get that momentary pause of taking in a deep breath.

I’m a sucker for a beautifully wrapped gift.  Sometimes I can get so focused on the wrapping, I can lose sight of the...

It’s been a while since my last article. 

Reason being - it’s been a very challenging few months.

Back in January, I was hit with a doozy of a migraine headache.

It concerned my doctor so much that he sent me to the emergency room.

When I was a little girl, Sunday was family day.

We would attend church in the morning.  Then, we would gather for the traditional Sunday dinner at 1:00.

Through it all, I’ve come to understand that everything has a purpose.  Oftentimes, it’s hard to under...

Last weekend, I attended the opening for the Film Society season at the Director’s Guild in Los Angeles.

The film I saw was A Star is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

The quality of the performances and the story moved me to my core.  I literally had to stop m...

Growing up in an Italian-American household, I was surrounded by the three Italian Mamas, my mother, my aunt and my grandmother, who were to say the least, clean freaks.

There were the proverbial plastic cushion protectors on the sofa and chairs. This was especially rou...

I grew up in an Italian-American family in Brooklyn, NY.  We were ten dysfunctional people all squeezed into three tiny apartments under one roof. 

This was fertile ground for family feuds to develop and fester.
