• Why Accept Crumbs

    How often in our lives do we have the same conversation over and over with ourselves; I wish I had said this, or I should have done or would have done that?  We repeat this to ourselves or to our patient spouses who have heard this same old story over and over. We accept crumbs, […]

  • Then, There is YouTube

    I’m sitting here watching the television coverage of a hurricane that’s about to sneak up on my back door. I switch channels and hear politicos of all “denominations and faiths” spend hours upon hours screaming at each other about minutiae found in someone’s past when they were in the third grade and wrote something stupid. […]

  • The Questions We Never Asked

    I had an interesting conversation with a client the other day while preparing documents for her. We started talking about her family and her childhood but she did not seem to know much about her parents and almost nothing about her grandparents. She became embarrassed and simply replied, “I never asked them that question.” It […]

  • Who You Gonna Call

    A story has been circulating on the Internet, regarding a young woman who had the presence of mind, to call 112 on her cell phone, when she was being stopped by a “police officer” on a lonely street. So, clients have been asking me, “What’s up with this?” or as their children may ask, “Wassup?”. […]

  • Patience and The Menu Option…. An Oxymoron

    I’m a big fan of the comic strip, Peanuts, and the wonderful character, Lucy. I love when she sits in front of what looks like a lemonade stand, with a sign, that says, “The Doctor is in… Well Lucy, I need you now. Usually, I’m the one trying to relax clients that come into my […]

  • Getting Hosed Filling Up

    It’s summer, wow the open road, top down on the convertible, picnics, barbecues, the beach. As they say, “the living is easy”. What could be better than a car filled with gas and our destination is ……..wherever. Remember when the gas station was called a “filling station”? I’m old enough to remember that you pulled […]

  • ATM – A LOTTA TROUBLE ABOUT MONEY

    It’s a dark and stormy night…. there’s a mist and just a slight glow of illumination. In that glow, there is a small structure standing alone, and I move slowly and carefully toward it. Holy moly, its an ATM. I must be nuts looking to get money from a machine all alone and in the […]

  • Were Times Ever Really Simpler?

    Sometimes, when I think about my law practice, Lucy from the “Peanuts” cartoon comes to mind. She often sits in the Psychiatry booth with a sign that says, “the Doctor is in”- for a fee of 5 cents. Besides answering questions about the law, I listen at length to very personal and detailed stories about […]

  • BRUCE LEE IS ALIVE AND WELL—JUST OLDER (PART THREE)

    I cannot stress enough how imperative it is to my senior clients to keep moving and continue learning new things. This will keep you feeling younger and keep your mind in tip-top shape. However, sometimes it’s hard to take your own advice. We’ll always get the same reflection back when we look in the mirror, […]

  • BRUCE LEE IS ALIVE AND WELL—JUST OLDER (PART 2)

    When I was growing up, I loved watching tough guys in movies. The western stars whose names may barely be remembered today were my idols. They symbolized resilience, grit, and determination. Most importantly, they all had one thing in common, confidence in themselves. My journey into martial arts training was really a path into some […]
