  • Lessons from the "Gilmore Girls"

    Those who know me know my two grand passions: cake with buttercream frosting and the "Gilmore Girls."

    Currently, I'm watching season two on DVD.

    For those who don't know about the "Gilmore Girls," it's a now-canceled TV series about a single mother and her teenage daughter who live in Stars Hollow, a quirky little town outside Hartford, Conn. The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.

  • Sometimes separate is best

    "I'm just gonna let you pass,

    Yes, and I'll go last.

    Then time will tell who fell

    And who's been left behind,

    When you go your way and I go mine."

    —Bob Dylan "Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)"

    Though hopefully no one falls, I agree with Bob Dylan. Sometimes you just have to go your separate ways.

  • Honor the 'mother' in your life

    Mother's Day comes but once a year. But, honestly, it should be celebrated every day of the year.

    We all have mothers ... either by birth or in someone we look to as a mother figure. They are the women who comfort us when we need comforting, encourage us when we need encouragement, who teach us right from wrong, who love us even when we feel we've failed them.

    And Sunday is their day.
