The Greatest Generation

The Greatest Generation

This past week we observed, with gravity, the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, as well as the passing of Senator, Professor, Marine Aviator, Astronaut, Engineer and devoted family man John Glenn. In listening to the few remaining survivors of the USS Arizona, as well as the eulogies of John Glenn, I am […]

“The Geography of Genius” by Eric Weiner

“The Geography of Genius” by Eric Weiner Have you ever wondered why certain pockets of the world cultivated a band of geniuses during a specific period of time and haven’t been able to sustain that culture or hot bed? I’ve never thought about this fact until I picked up my latest amazing book: “The Geography […]

The Core of Holiday Cheer

The Core of Holiday Cheer

I view the holidays the same way I view Pilates: strengthening my mind, body, soul and spirit from the inside out. Pilates fortifies my body starting with all the muscles that wrap around my core and pelvis, which elongate and stabilize my skeletal system—much like the roots of a tree. From there I notice the […]

These people are mirrors. These people are sounding […]

Bloopers & Blunders: Join the Squad

Bloopers & Blunders: Join the Squad

With all the strife we are encountering in the world and in our country, I’m in need for a little comic relief. Bloopers and blunders. We all have them. The “I Love Lucy” episodes in our life that couldn’t have been more awkward or comedic if we’d tried to write the script. Here’s one of […]

What’s Your 0.5%?

What’s Your 0.5%?

Consider that every human on the planet shares the same 99.5% of the human DNA sequence. That makes that last 0.5% an exceptionally potent bit—making each of us spectacularly unique. It seems ridiculous that we would attempt to conform to someone else’s ideal of who we should be when so little of our make-up has […]
