The Cycles of Friendship – “Thanks for Stopping By”

The Cycles of Friendship – “Thanks for Stopping By…” Over the last 4 years I have experienced some of the biggest, bad ass and yet most bountiful shifts in my life. I left a marriage… and found my self. I lost close friends…. and opened to new family. I dumped definitions…. and fell in love with my no labels no veils sublimely naked spirit. And in the end I came home… to me. Through this experience of floating in a sea of change (learning to not attempt to swim upstream against the current of the cosmos), one of the...

Five Hundred Lunches and Counting

Five Hundred Lunches and Counting I’ve been having lunch with the same three women nearly every week for the past 12-15 years, depending on which of us you ask. We have all known each other for longer than that, and our lunches began innocuously enough – four friends from the same community getting together to chat and share some gossip.

Say YES To You and Others During the Storm I never thought I’d be singing the song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” while looking outside the window of my neighbor’s fifth floor apartment, which is located next to mine, in a lovely apartment building just off the East River in Manhattan.  I was using Oscar Hammerstein’s lyrics to calm us as we saw waves pummeling up our street. “When you walk through a storm hold your head up high and don’t be afraid of the dark!”  I think of those lyrics and the tears fill my eyes. His lyrics (with...

You Be The Judge

You Be The Judge Next to deceit, judging others is possibly the worst of all human flaws.  Everyone is a judge, yes, including me.  What if we step outside of ourselves for a moment and analyze what makes us do so?  Some people judge others as a reflection of their own shortcomings to further create a smokescreen for the same thing they are judging others about.  There is a saying when you point a finger at someone, three fingers point back at you. If we truly look deep within ourselves, we don’t only see our strong traits but our...

“Saying “YES” to YOU – May Mean Saying “NO” to Someone Else”

The title of this post is probably the hardest thing I’ll ever have to learn, given who I am.  My inner drive is to be a helper.  I can’t help it. I was born with that “I AM” in my soul. Believe me, I’m still working on this on a daily basis.  If this is somewhat of a repeat of a former post, it’s because I have to keep working on it and – I bet a few Here Women Talk readers need help in this area too. One thing I sense from the group on the site is...
