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.

THE LAY OF THE LAND

My grandmother, Rose, bought the ho...

About two weeks ago, I received a residual check in the mail for a TV show I did in 2007. 

This time, I just laughed with the amount and decided to post it on Facebook with the quip, “There’s nothing like getting a check in the mail.”

I received some funny responses; but...

As a kid growing up in an Italian-American family and attending Catholic school, the word “no” was not an option.

I had to do what I was told; and there was no such thing as questioning authority.

At home, I had a triple threat – my mother, my aunt and my grandmother.  T...

I look at my life; and I realize I’ve stepped outside of my comfort zone so many times.

I’ve always been one to take calculated risks.  I worked as a secretary, then went back to school to get my B.B.A, then my M.B.A.

I’ve traveled extensively, usually by myself.  I trie...

Is it just me, or does it feel like this year is flying by?

When I reach the mid-year point each year, I like to assess if I’m meeting my goals or do I need to tweak a few things.

This time I started to reflect on my career.  Acting is my second career.  It’s been my chi...

I’m fascinated by children.

As adults, it is our responsibility to teach our children; but I find that I learn so much from them.

When I used to work in the nursery at church or teach Sunday school, I enjoyed observing each child in my care.

Some were loners and enjoyed p...

Growing up in an Italian-American family, there was a key phrase, “I can forgive; but I can’t forget”.

This was especially true of my grandmother.  She could really hold a grudge.

I never wanted to do anything that would tick her off.

Unfortunately, there was one day we d...

We are all beautiful creations

Gifted with talents uniquely our own

Yet, through life's challenges we can often feel alone

As we try to meet each need

Sometimes moving at breakneck speed

We can get lost in the miry clay

The reality of who we are never put on display

Tucked aw...

There’s a well-known saying, Can’t see the forest for the trees.

I think a perfect example of this is when major decisions need to be made; but it’s extremely difficult to do so.

Circumstances loom so large that they can be overwhelming.  Instead of seeing the full fores...

I make it a point to pay attention to subliminal signs and what they could mean.

For the last week, I kept seeing and hearing things about tearing down walls.  This resonated deep within me.

It got me thinking about the word wall. 

When I hear the phrase, It’s Like Talkin...
