The Many Faces of Grief

On the way to the store the other day, we saw an SUV with a large decal that obstructed the back window with angel wings and a name inscribed with a date of birth and death. The baby being referenced lived for only two days in 2008 and was still memorialized by the driver 5 years later. It made us…

A Commencement Speech for Parents to Give

Many parents are currently passing an important milestone in raising their children, graduation from college. Sending our children off into the world with a diploma in hand is perhaps one of the most hopeful and loving acts we parents commit, never mind the bills we’ve racked up in the process. That’s why we decided to share our thoughts in a…

Postscript on Living the Rich Life…

For the past two postings, It’s Not How Rich You Are, It’s How Rich You Live, Part 1 and Part 2,  we’ve been discussing what a rich life is all about. Is it about having wealth and possessions or is it about how you live your values and have experiences that exemplify them? As we’ve noted, it all depends on…

It’s Not How Rich You Are, It’s How Rich You Live, Part 2

Most of us probably think that being rich is about wealth; after all we do live in a capitalist world and are constantly bombarded by advertising pushing us to buy, buy, buy. There used to be a TV show called Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous where we mere mortals got a glimpse of the glamour we thought was what…

It’s Not How Rich You Are, It’s How Rich You Live, Part 1

We’ve all heard that money can’t buy happiness, but you’ve got to admit that sometimes having just a bit more could make you a lot happier, if only to be able to afford a long-dreamed about vacation, a new car or even new tires, braces for the kids or just enough to go a spa, drink some wine and soak…

Milestones

During Roman times milestones were physical stone markers along the empire’s roads that told travelers how much further they still had to go. In modern times this has evolved to mean when we’ve reached moments in our lives that are significant, and which mark a new phase in our journey through the world.

Decisions, decisions, decisions

You’d think life was difficult enough without all the decisions we have to make that are not necessarily earth shattering, but still confound us at times. So why do easy decisions become so hard? Well, when you consider that most grocery stores have an average of 50,000 items (and some super-humongous-giant stores have even more) just slipping into the store…

Back in the Day

“The illusion that times that were are better than those that are has probably pervaded all ages.”—Horace Greeley Life seemed so much easier and simpler back in the day. For some of us, we pine about when we didn’t lock our doors or our cars. Children could run around without fear. We were young, good looking, skinnier and full of…

The Power of a Handwritten Note

Forget about ecards, emails, tweets, Facebook postings, Instagram and all the other ways we now use social media to communicate with and to share our lives. While those communications tools have their value, they’ve become so insidious that we’ve become a text-happy world that has relegated an intimate, thoughtful message to the round file. We fire off quick emails often…

Why Stories Are Important

We tell and listen to stories all of our lives, from kids on the playground talking about a cartoon they saw on TV or from their imagination to going out after work with our co-workers to let off a little steam and to share our thoughts about the day, our jobs, our bosses, our spouses, our children and our lives.…
