Meet and greet

After I have been working at a summit for three days in my role as master of  ceremonies,  it takes a while for me to turn off that host instinct.


When I was walking down the concourse at the airport last night,  I found myself smiling widely at people I didn’t  know and saying hi.  It took a few minutes to stop.

Funny thing  – –  one of the gentlemen that I smiled at was one of our clients.

So that worked out.

Freeze frame

Oh boy — individual TVs on my flight to ATL!


And mine is so friendly — it has been welcoming me for almost 45 minutes.

Can you say busted?


Land of giants

Everything is bigger in Texas, I know.


But these roses are RIDIC.  And red.

(Thought they were supposed to be yellow….?)

Hey ya’ll


And I really mean hay! I am in Kentucky.

Is that a gorgeous view or what?


I was on yet another airplane this morning, bored, so I decided to go through my phone storage and delete old files and pics that I didn’t need anymore.

I was surprised at how many docs were on my phone. You should check yours; like me, you probably only downloaded files on your phone to take an quick look and store them elsewhere.

So I axed most of them.

I kept more of the pics, but what fun it was to scroll through them!


Reliving my family’s recent beach trip to Florida…fun visits in NYC with friends and family…Lou and my Harry Potter World adventures…and my trip to Tokyo last year!

If you need a quick pick-me-up, browse through the images in your gallery. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.


I leave tomorrow on a seven-day, three-city business trip.

cardboard box

I had so many materials to bring home from the office, I had to carry them on the subway in a cardboard box.

As I was awaiting my stop, I noticed something different about my ride home. Typically New Yorkers avoid all eye contact. Tonight their eyes were darting towards me quickly, with seeming discomfort.

It suddenly hit me — they probably thought I had lost my job and the box contained my personal effects.

I thought about producing a few tears, but that seemed like bad karma.

Socks and stripes

I saw these socks on the subway tonight.


They made me very happy.

I was reminded of the Wicked Witch of the East,  childhood and all things denim and cozy — all at the same time.

The guy wearing  them seemed happy, too.

Coincidence?  I think not.
