Darling, How many new year’s resolutions did you write down this year? (Don’t roll your eyes at me, Miss Missy!!) And how many of those resolutions have been on your list for quite some time – years, even? (Big group sigh.) What is it that happens to a resolution – that it stays unresolved? What...

Darling, Yes, it’s true. I was having a ‘man’ freak-out. It was a small thing. But not small to me. I had the great foolishness to develop a massive crush on a guy from a dating site, who I had never met, but who sent me a poem. Two poems, actually. (Do I emanate ‘send...

There is no worse word for a woman than stuck. We can handle pain.  We can handle loss.  We can handle chaos. There is a beginning, middle and end to those experiences.

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...

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, 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, 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?

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! I was overwhelmed and thrilled by the responses we received to our blog post requesting your deepest questions. The stories we read, the questions plead, touched me to...
