The Day Whitney Houston Saved My Life

  I was in my car the other day, listening to the radio, and this song by Whitney Houston came on—And I… I… will always love… uuu—when a thought careened into me, almost blowing me off the road: Stop waiting, Alex. Waiting for what, you ask. To be happy.   Creeping into my subconscious, and…

Why Men Pull a Disappearing Act After Sex

  Many of you have done it. It’s been a while since you’ve “gotten some.” You met the cute guy from the (pick-your-favorite) app. And he has some good text game. Drinks.

The Girl w/ Cat Breath

  It was our second date–but more of a friend date. I didn’t feel a ton of chemistry on our first date, but it was fun, and she was interesting and out-of-the-box, and totally irreverent, so we kept in touch with the intention of doing artsy/creative things together.   It took a few weeks, but…

Running to Stand Still

  Those of you from the 80’s or earlier might know this song by U2. I relate– big time.   My life can be characterized by never-ending movement. Florida. Ohio. Michigan. Georgia. Israel. New York. Connecticut. Georgia (again). Florida (again). California. And, now, Florida… again!   I was studying Torah in yeshiva in Israel. I…

My New Mantra: “No Big Deal”

  Over Thanksgiving, while waiting for lights to turn green, I read an article by one of my good friends, Ari Moshe Wolfe, an evolutionary astrologist and intuitive guide. Though I usually find his writings profound, this particular one (read article here) struck me deeper than usual . The message, NBD: It’s No Big Deal. I’m what we might…
