Happy #100 Aunt Sylvia

As the title says my aunt celebrated her 100th birthday last week. It’s a rare feat. Think of all the people you know that are 100. Yeah…me too. I hear there was a big celebration party. The youngest person there was 60…59 if my brother brought his wife. Life in the fast lane. Her family... Read more »

A Year In The Life....My Favorite Moments At ChicagoNow-Part 1

Yesterday was not just Mother’s Day. It was also my one year anniversary of writing at ChicagoNow. One year….209 of these things. Are you kidding me? The numbers are a little skewed by the 30 I did for Parkinson’s Awareness Month but still, that’s about doing one of these every other day. No wonder I’m... Read more »

Happy Birthday Israel: Being Jewish and Worldwide Antisemitism

 I’ve been spending a lot of time recently examining my beliefs and spirituality. There are plenty of reasons for this. I’m getting older. The end is much closer than the beginning. But this wouldn’t be anything new. I could have said the same thing at age 45. I also now have a chronic ailment. Lot’s... Read more »

The Corner of Healthy and Happy

Last week I wrote about my new primary physician. You know…the guy who used the f-word a couple of times. Friday, I get a call from his office. He wants me to take another pill. Fine. What’s one more, right? This pill is suppose to give me more energy. In the two days I’ve had... Read more »

Lennon's classic opens the acoustic set

What would a John Lennon concert sound like in 2014? I’d like to think it would be somewhat like this. The venue is definitely at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Is Watching Porn At The Library OK?

I spend a lot of time at libraries. I can find a quiet corner. Read a book. Plug in my laptop. Listen to music. All kinds of things. I even have library cards for three cities…shhh…don’t tell anyone.  I write most of my blog pieces at a library. I’m doing that now.  It’s a peaceful... Read more »

Porn at the Library

This was going to be a day off from the Blogosphere. See keyword WAS. That lasted until two hours ago at the library. I was seeing one of my doctors. The office is right across from a branch of the Chicago Public Library. I had an hour to kill so that’s where I went to... Read more »

Parkinson's and Meditation

Parkinson’s is no picnic in the park. Even the mildest symptoms aren’t that mild. I’ve mentioned before that balance is my biggest issue.

    Last June I hit the magic age of 60. Almost immediately I found myself not feeling as well as usual. Go figure, I mean, I am 60 years old, whether I want to admit it or not!! But then strange symptoms started to occur. A friend, who is a doctor, told me to get checked out....Voila...Parkinsons. That's what this is all about. Living every day with this. Personal info... I'm 60 divorced with 2 daughters in their early 20's live in the city...lakeview area...grew up in the north burbs. Lived in So. California for 13 years...may go back...I hear winters are warm there!! :-)
