Darling, I’m writing to you from Miami, as I’m about to board a plane back to NYC. What’s spinning through my head? “Through the Eyes of Love” by Melissa Manchester. “I Had the Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing. The Sentimental Saccharine Geek has taken over my soul. I have been weeping with gratitude...

Darling, Has anyone ever told you to just get out there and FEEL? FEEL loudly? WEEP uncontrollably? RAGE like an angry lioness? HOWL like a bitch in heat? Cry MORE? SCREAM your head off? What women have been trained, taught and conditioned, their whole lives, is to turn down the volume and velocity of their...

Darling, Look around. Everything is dying here in the Northeast. The grass is brown. The leaves are throwing one last party, exploding with color, before they fall, die, and dry up. Every year: death. Birth, life, death. I have always had a preference for the first two. Birth is so beautiful. Life – so exciting....

Darling, I have to be honest. Motherhood absolutely overwhelmed me. From the first moment I pushed my baby out, I was absolutely overwhelmed with love, with worry, with fear, with responsibility. I remember the first night after I gave birth to her in the hospital and everyone suggested that I leave her in the nursery...

Darling, When you have a deep desire, what do you do? Are you thrilled to be filled with yearning? Do you enjoy that delicious feeling of wanting? Or do you focus, instead, on the pain of not having what you want? Are you pissed that you don’t have what you want? Do you curse the...

Darling, Is your light on or off? Right now. Take a quick test: Do you feel flush with enthusiasm? Beautiful? Strong? Confident? Good.  Then your light is on. Light is everything. No light, no life.  It’s that simple. Do you notice women’s light? I am sure you do. You can tell right away whether it...

Darling, I have just gotten the single mother break of the century. My daughter has a whole weekend sleepover with a camp friend, in the country.  She gets fresh fall air, changing leaves, and giggling all night with friends, and I have time to ride my horse, catch up with friends, and sip a cup...

Darling, So you’re not exactly happy with your job, but you don’t have a strong pull on what’s next. You suffer from lack of direction and lack of clear focus like a lingering head cold. You’ve been with this guy for a while, and there is nothing wrong with him. He’s fine, actually, but you...

Darling, I spent a few intense hours last Sunday with my daughter, trying on clothes, making sure she had the perfect thing to wear on her first day of school.  The big question, as she tried on each different thing in her closet?  “Mom, do I look fat?” She is not fat. And this is...

Darling, Sensuality is power. Not domination.  Not force. It is something different.  It is both more practical and more numinous. Yesterday, I was traveling seven hours with my daughter, to have a weekend visit with my college chums on Cape Cod.  The day before, I had packed up our beach house and moved us back...
