    2 Types of Music

      There are two types of music. Those that awaken your body and those that awaken your soul. Lazer Brody’s Cd Calming Waters is definitely the second type. From the title you may think its simple spa music or soothing sounds, but don’t let that fool you. Calming Waters is a collection of prayers that take you to places of euphoria and yearning. I bought his Cd man years ago when he came to Baltimore to give a talk. I […]

  • Letting Go

    Letting Go

    Today a friend shared with me some  wisdom borrowed from a Buddhist teaching. The topic was letting go, and it really stuck me deep in my core. As I listened to the simple words they resonated and vibrated deep within me and I recognized a power that I never knew that I had. The power to let go. Going through a transitional time myself it’s particularly poignant, but truly it’s relevant to all of us at all times: Here goes: He tells […]

  • Good Bye Wrapunzel

    Good Bye Wrapunzel

        Last night was Good Bye Wrapunzel night. Its a huge change but we are sure that  this will be the beginning of something incredible I can’t explain it in more profound terms, we just KNOW that despite the loss, everything is going to be amazing. In preparation for this new stage we’ve been fixing up our house. All those places (like our torn couches) that we had ignored while we were breathlessly busy were suddenly staring up at […]

  • My 20’s 30’s and 40’s

    My 20’s 30’s and 40’s

        Well, I have to admit – the title of this post is a bit misleading. I’m actually not in my 40’s yet. But I’m almost there… very close. The other day, my husband and I  were reflecting on life with my sister in law Tamar. She asked us where we’re at, and I began musing;” We’re like in our 40’s. You know,  In your 20’s you’re figuring out ‘who am I?’ In your 30’s, its all about ‘what am […]

  • The Shabbos Project

    The Shabbos Project

      Sometimes I have so much going on that its hard to capture it all in words. So I end up not posting. Which is nuts because there’s so much to write about! Instead I recapped for you in this video that I took the day after the event. In the video link you’ll get to see the movement that took over my life for the past month. In an unparalleled act of unity over 1 million people kept shabbos […]

    Gold and Sequins and Rustic Rainbows

      (Pictured here, Mommy in the orange shawl with 2 friends in Jerusalem)   I can’t just write about Mommy P, The P is for Perlman She gave me my name. I can’t just tell stories that will make your eyes shine and your heart soar She wouldn’t like that. Mommy likes the hidden world and the hidden words the unspoken messages of holiness and empathy and permission to be wrapped up in the olive dip and cashew spread offered […]

  • The Third Alternative

    The Third Alternative

        The  Third Alternative is an alternate universe that is waiting for us to visit her. It’s a place of arriving, a place of surrendering control and being open, not only to possibilities, but to the possibility that there are so many possibilities you haven’t even begun to fathom. They say, “You teach what you need to learn.” The first half of this year I was learning about boundaries. I had made so many mistakes over the years that […]

  • It’s Shabbos Tonight!

    It’s Shabbos Tonight!

      Today is Friday. Around here we like to call it Erev Shabbos, the Eve of Shabbos. The magic of Shabbos is as deep as the ocean and as simple as a bumper sticker. You know that one  the one that says “We are not physical beings have a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience.” That one. We know it –  but it’s so hard to access. Our whole week is full of physical pursuits. Enter […]

  • What if I Don’t Believe in G-d?

    What if I Don’t Believe in G-d?

    I got to make this video with Ruthie Guggenheim. She is a no nonsense hero who has been chugging away sometimes single handedly at Jewish Education for decades. What an honor. Even though we’re sitting Talk Show style there’ s one thing different than a Talk Show. Well, actually there’s a lot – no band, no commercials  and no audience (but you!) The main thing that’s different though is that its completely unscripted. We were just both thinking of Amy […]
