Friday Musings: I Remember Everything

Friday Musings: I Remember Everything

Wednesday’s crazy snow day here on the East coast gave me the opportunity to watch Call Me By Your Name, one of this year’s Oscar nominated movies. It’s a story of first love that transcends questions of gender, age, and impropriety so completely that it’s able to evoke tremendous emotions in its viewing audience. I, for one, was left sobbing at the end of it, completely unravelled by one spoken line. It left me thinking about what it is that we seek from one another in terms of our relationships, no

Friday Musings: But I Know I’m Right

When the most unexpected things come along in life they tend to take our breath away. We all know the feeling, right? The universe places something in front of us that’s everything we think we’ve ever wanted, and suddenly our hearts leap for joy. We feel so lucky. We feel so fortunate. We think we’ve won the lottery. We look up the meaning of the word serendipity in the dictionary and our own picture is smiling back at us. Positively beaming.

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, a celebration around the world of all that we are and all that we accomplish as women.

Friday Musings: Late Night Text

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed the other day when a little blurb from one of the accounts I follow that features quotes caught my eye. It read “You are my favorite notification” and it was accompanied by a heart emoji, of course. As silly as it may sound, especially for someone like me who grew up with a rotary phone, this little quote truly made me smile. Oh come on, don’t laugh. We’ve all been there. You’re going about your day and you hear your text message alert on your phone. You look

Friday Musings: Have Coffee With Me

Friday Musings: Have Coffee With Me

There is a painting by Edward Hopper called Automat, publicly shown for the first time on Valentine’s Day in 1927, in which he depicts a young woman sitting alone in a café drinking a cup of coffee. It’s hard to know what her situation is. She appears sad and somewhat disappointed, as if something about her evening, or her life in general, did not go the way she hoped it would. There appear to be no other patrons in the café, or if they are there, we can’t see them, so our focus remains on this young
