I had a session with a spiritual advisor once, and almost immediately she told me my life’s ruling value is FREEDOM. As she said it my mind started flipping through memories of decisions I’d made – many of them of the spontaneous variety – based on my need to feel free. Her statement that day […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
On a recent Skype call with my sister (blood and soul) she told me about a study on why women tend to live up to five years longer than men. In a nutshell, the findings supported the argument that women live longer due to the difference in the amount of meaningful social activity they have […]Continue Reading... 9 Comments.
I can hardly believe it. It’s the final countdown… Only two weeks until this chapter of my solo adventures abroad close and I begin the next chapter of my life’s journey. I am taking time to reflect on the things I love about my life here in Italy. There’s no reason I can’t bring a […]Continue Reading... Comments Off on The Lists: I Heart Italy vs. I Heart USA
And a very, merry un-birthday to you! “Twinkle, twinkle little bat, how I wonder what your at…” I woke up from crazy dreams at 10:30a hot as f*ck.

When I started the year that wasn’t even in my scope of possibilities. But, as a freelance marketing expert I open […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
I’m struggling right now with a feeling of disconnect from the ones that I love, but I hesitated telling you about it. I was afraid you’d say, “I told you so.

I find myself lost in thought, sitting, crying and breathing it all in. I was never much of a crier; I always choked back tears. It made me feel […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
I’ve been back in the States for less than 2 weeks and I already feel fat. What. The. Deuce. I can’t pin point exactly why, although I’ve started a list: Mexican food, reunion celebrations including excess amounts of food, beer, wine and/or a variety of brown liquors, driving in lieu of walking (but never after […]Continue Reading...

I was talking the other night with a few of my Italian friends who happen to be a handful of years younger than me. We were discussing the perception of the best years of a man and woman’s life.
