Family boating tradition continues on the Great South Bay:-) as do beach days at Gilgo and Cedar Beach with high schoolContinue reading “Last Summer: Long Island's South Shore”
My own research made cannabis the first priority when it came to my health, and accessing it legally also covered my second priority, stress reduction.
Dr. Joe Dituri was the expert guest on the latest Local TV show. The retired Naval Commander, diving expert, professor and research scientist shared valuable information for all.
As we drove over his Sag Harbor bridge, I told Harvey about Jordan Haerter. Then, at the traffic circle I told him about Joey Theinert, pointing to Shelter Island, where a ferry is named for him. I poured my heart out about my memoir, my ex and my father. I told him how it was so hard to live in the Hamptons where people seem to have no idea we are at war. I told him how I cut a lot out of my memoirs.
The more I practice self-care, the more my health care plan resembles caring for a child.
Despite what viewers see on A & E’s Live PD, there is lots of good, clean fun and flavor to be found in Pasco County. Some now-famous Pasco County Sheriffs were spotted (and thanked) at Hudson, Florida’s SunWest Park, an example of family friendly festivities.
My first day trip to Safety Harbor, Florida will not be my last.
An employee at the Trulieve dispensary in New Port Richey, Florida also thought that my patient number was cool. I am one of the first.

This short musical trailer gives a glimpse into my memoir of my life as a military wife during the beginning of the Iraq War. My now ex-husband was deployed while I tried to deal in the Hamptons.
As stress is the cause of most dis-ease, I limit it in any possible way, as mentioned in previous posts and memoirs. I spend my self-created downtime in my own healing places, usually on the water. I often think of those who follow conventional paths and pray for them. I also think of those whoContinue reading “Healing Places”
“It would be easier,” my mother replied matter-of-factly when I mentioned the option of being married to my career instead of a man this morning. Another mother figure, my ex-mother-in-law, said something similar, back in those days. We were watching one of my favorite HBO series, Six Feet Under, and she was particularly fond ofContinue reading “Single on Purpose: an Unconventional Life”

I am purifying my life and limiting things such as sitting, talking, eating, people, places, plans, news, noise, negativity, driving and drama.

I was like a kid in the sandbox. On my hands and knees pulling any crab-grassy, thorny, prickly growths from my new garden beds and pathways.

I wrote this article last week for Green Flower Media, but mostly I wrote it for my mother. She suffers from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The article also links to a story I wrote about my own journey toward the medicinal weed for breast cancer. https://www.learngreenflower.com/articles/331/cannabis-please-for-parkinson-s-disease Decades of negative stigma and false information about theContinue reading “Cannabis Please for Parkinson’s Disease”
I was back in New York for the holidays, reminiscing with family over vintage photos and Christmas Cream, a decadent adult treat bottled and gifted annually by family friends, when I recalled a conversation I had earlier with my niece about chia seeds. “That’s my one thing I do to prevent cancer,” she said.
