You were born to feast.

February 13, 2018

Good boys. Bad boys. Who’s sexier? Who turns you on the most? Whether you’re attracted to men or women, both, or neither, let’s tell some truth. I don’t know about you, but for much of my life, I have been a crash course missile, heading straight for a “bad boy.” So many of my girlfriends, […]

“I am a survivor.”

March 2, 2016

I draw courage from the stories of women who have courage. I draw strength from learning from women who have overcome the insurmountable. I transmute when I hear of a woman who has remade herself, cellularly. The fire in my belly busted into a wildfire when I heard Annette’s story. And the very same thing […]

The most unexpected gift

November 12, 2013

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 […]

Conducting this orchestra of life

September 30, 2013

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 […]

When life throws you a curveball…

July 30, 2013

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 […]

I just couldn’t wait!

July 29, 2013

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 […]

“I have to say, Mama Gena did not impress me.”

March 5, 2013

Darling, Women are like trees. When we are given fertile soil, glorious sunshine, abundant water, and a perfect climate, not only will we thrive and grow, but we will provide so much beauty and joy and nourishment for others. But what are the ingredients necessary to cultivate a superior environment for a woman? What causes […]

How to get a guy to love you

January 22, 2013

Darling, You did it. You got the job you deserved. You slogged through and got the divorce you needed. The kids are handled and thriving. You make friends every time you turn around. But why oh why does love—real true love, with an amazing partner—remain just out of reach? What have we women lost, in […]

Perfect on the outside, dying on the inside

January 15, 2013

Darling, It was just another cold December morning.  I woke up, got the kid on the bus, went to spin class, showered, dressed. I settled in with a gigantic cup of English breakfast tea, in my God Save the Queen mug, to catch up with my emails before the office opened.  In my inbox, I […]
