There are things I know how to do. When a kid falls and scrapes her knee, I am so good for picking her up and soothing her, whether she’s mine or someone else’s. When a friend needs emotional support, I’m 100% there. But when I read the news these days, I feel kicked in the actual...

There is a part of creation that hurts. That could seem humiliating. Or embarrassing.   Creation is … chaotic. Feminine. Co-operating with forces, more than rules. Raw. Risky. Fueled by passion.

I have been reading all of the news about Planned Parenthood and finding the situation very difficult to process. Yes, I am shocked. Yes, outraged. Yes, disgusted, angry, frustrated . . . all of that and more. It is so easy to blame. To name-call. To meet negativity with double-down negativity. But we all know...

I’m a New Yorker … and while I love being in the Hamptons for the summer, riding my horse, writing my book, dining with friends, walking along the beach, looking for shooting stars … Part of me is also glad I have big obligations to drive me forward and challenges to sink into – a...
