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, I am so deeply impatient with mediocrity. Irritated off the wall with settling, with compromise, with shrinking. I cannot even stand on a line without questioning it or inventing an alternative. Yesterday I was on a line at Briermere Farms, trying to pick up a going-away pie to bring to my friend Amanda. And...

This week we look at relationships: How do you take a relationship and have it grow better and better over time? How do you create and acknowledge the space to allow THE relationship to be unveiled? How do you see through what you think you need, to where your pleasure is actually found?

Ohmygoddess! LOOK at your body. I mean, LOOK at it! Really. Look at it. What do you see? Do you see beauty? Flaws? Flab? I was having dinner with a friend in the Hamptons on Saturday night, and there was a moment when we were in her bedroom, getting ready for a party, and reviewing...

Life transitions… Such a polite way to describe what are really the dark nights of the soul, those dark, difficult turning points in life. Just when you think you have it all figured out… WHAM! Life turns you upside down and shakes you. I know that many of you are going through your own exploding version...

It’s Monday, Sisters, and I know, I know, I am a day early, but I just could not wait to inform you all of what is going down starting TOMORROW!
