This week’s Intimate Discovery: Two capital boutiques cater to quality

I usually don’t get an opportunity to visit lingerie shops located outside the NY metropolitan area. What a treat it was, then, to stop by two very unique, very different and very well merchandised boutiques when I traveled to Maryland this week to visit my sister and do a little sightseeing in Washington D.C.  I was impressed at how well each store understood its customer’s … Read More


Shaping the Future

As an art student, traveling through Italy, I was introduced to the genius of Michelangelo when I first saw the legendary statue of David at the Accademia in Florence.   In those days it was possible to get close to the sculpture, close enough to touch the marble.

Feminine Mystique

cassattmotherI have always been intrigued with art that focuses on the grace and beauty of the feminine mystique.  I have collected illustrations and prints that depict woman engrossed in the simple acts of daily life; bathing, drinking a cup of tea, ironing, or nursing.  Many artists have managed this pictorial poetry to celebrate the female form, but when my first child was born, I became particularly enamored with the work of   Mary Cassatt.  Cassatt’s … Read More


In the Zone

ny-yankeesIt is October in New York. The New York Yankees are in the post season playoffs and I have become a devotee by default.  The men in my life are obsessed.  One of the lessons this iconic American sport teaches is to perform at top levels, an athlete needs to be “in the zone”.   That means feeling comfortable in your own skin and having the confidence to believe you can do it.  Digging deep to … Read More
