I think the scariest decision I've ever made was to join the best weather website I've ever seen: WeatherBug. 

I mean, it is so complete in reporting every puff of the air that I breathe that my normal level of anxiety—plenty enough—has skyrocketed.

I can practicall...

Ready for this?

I forget why, but the other day I stumbled upon an old interview by Johnny Carson with Robin Williams—sadly gone—a highly original improvisational actor whose talent for character-creation ranged from the deeply moving to the insanely funny, both verball...

How could I not watch the Mickey Mouse 90th Birthday Special?

He's just a year older than me—practically brothers—saw him in his first cartoons, those original clean innocent drawings. A sweetheart. Honest, truthful, loving, kind, big heart, a little shy. Best role mode...

To be honest, from kindergarten on, I was not—by any stretch of the imagination—a serious student, listening to every word, happy to be there, never missing a day. In fact, I'd be surprised if my absentee record wasn't still on the books, and when I actually was in sch...

So, to continue my gripping narrative; thanks to Biofeedback, my migraine headaches were gone, never to be heard from—or experienced—again.

That was way back in the eighties, but I still cross my fingers when I talk about it; I'm conditioned from childhood experience, d...

Imagine: Olden days; like, eons ago. Caveman-time.

Mountain over here, mountain over there, roaring torrent way, way down below: no way to get from here to there without breaking your neck. I mean, climb down, clinging to bushes, rocks, whatever; it'd take a lifetime. B...

Memories stacked up in my vault are visual, visceral, and aural. Ready to roll; any time.

When a memory appears, it's alive. I'm there; I mean, right there in the scene, not watching it like a movie. I'm living it. Feelings, heart pounding, stomach lurching around. The...

Where is Mister Rogers now, when children need him so badly?

Kind, thoughtful, gentle and loving. Nothing sly; no side jokes for parents. Strictly for the kids…learning experiences. No commercials. No condescension, talking down, or lecturing. None of that.

I don't remember when Lox became Nova Scotia salmon.

Growing up in New York, all I knew was Lox, with cream cheese on a bagel; or in a salad, with about a pound of cream cheese and a bagel on the side—nobody should ever leave hungry—or with a carload of pickled herring...
