Hold him…

There I was sitting across from my son getting ready to be as vulnerable as possible, not truly knowing how he would receive my heart.  And so, I leaped! I was nervous, but I needed him to know of my inner sorrow so that I could heal our brokenness.  And then it happened...healing and wholeness. We... Continue Reading →

“We need all your birth certificates”, he said. “All your siblings, it’s the only way to disperse the inheritance”. I proceeded to collect all the birth certificates and something was off.

This weekend I was in a room full of love and celebration and the next day a room full of judgment and excess. I belonged in both rooms.   It was a weekend of bipartisanship, literally. I sat in awe that I had come so far.  A little Puerto Rican girl from The Bronx was seated... Continue Reading →

School Scandal? New…well?

These past few weeks our news and twitter feeds have been inundated with the school scandal/entrance scam.  Parents going the "extra mile" to assure their child is guaranteed a seat in the most elite schools around the country.

I have attended several weddings in the past months, and one ceremony had a poignant moment.
